A few days ago, Saudi Arabia was advancing its mighty nuclear power development plan, in order to meet the electric demand for increasing day by day, and save the petroleum for export.
But for other Arab countries, because and political turbulence lacks the capital source, its nuclear power development prospect is not optimistic.
Saudi Arabia has set up the foreign capitals of about 500 billion dollars to store through the petroleum export, however, ” economic digest of the Middle East ” is pointed out, ” Saudi Arabian kingdom is facing a series of more severe challenge, threaten the stability of the political situation. ”
” The poor efficiency spends energies freely, add population’s growth, make Saudi Arabia consume more Chinese natural resources, it is unable to use resource for exporting, increase incomes on the basis of 500 billion dollars. ” ” Unless Saudi Arabia take action, otherwise they must bring the intersection of petroleum and price up to, could realize the budget equalization by 320 first barrel by 2030 ” ,This the United Arab Emirates weekly magazine warn in this way. The nuclear power is considered to be a kind of settlement route. But just as ” economic digest of the Middle East ” emphasized, ” Time is essential. ”
One of the reasons is Saudi Arabia’s and includes the United Arab Emirates, other Arab countries inclusive of Kuwait, Qatar and Egypt do not want to lag behind Iran and Israel in nuclear energy technology develop again.
In 2010, establish Saudi Arabian Abdullah atom and regenerated energy centre KAcare for the nuclear plan of supervising the littoral country of the Persian Gulf ,And is served as a president by Hashim bin Abdullah Yamani and exercised the right at ministerial level. KAcare advisor Ibrahim Babelli says, uses and is equivalent to 3,400,000 barrels of petroleum barrel oil equivalent day every day 2010 Used for generating electricity, the above of doubling in 2028 that and predict this data, is up to 8,300,000 barrels of oil equivalent of every day.
The goal of nuclear power project of 100 billion dollars in Saudi Arabia is that the electricity can realize 110,000 megawatts to have by 2032. ” Financial Times ” reports, according to the newest data, the total installed capacity of 79 hydropower stations of Saudi Arabia will be 52,000 megawatts in 2009. Include 16 reactors in the plan at least, each fabrication cost is about 7 billion dollars. The first unit plans to generate electricity in 2019.
In the future, the fuel of fossil will probably be regarded as the main energy, and develop wind energy, solar energy and nuclear energy at the same time. KAcare is developing the solar energy project, ” economic digest of the Middle East ” estimates it will produce 41,000 megawatts of electricity within 20 years, and geothermal energy and energy retrieve the system and produce 4 gigawatt GWs of electricity.
As the most developed country of the Arab world, the United Arab Emirates released the nuclear energy plan in 2009, Saudi Arabia is immediately after it. The United Arab Emirates makes 10 billion dollars additional investment on the basis that in the original plan, the total value of project is up to 30 billion dollars, but its scale is smaller than Saudi Arabia.
