Barakah containment building passes tests
Tests to evaluate the strength and leak tightness of the containment building at the United Arab Emirates' first nuclear unit at Barakah have been completed successfully. The structural integrity test and the integrated leak rate test, which together demonstrate the integrity and robustness of the structure and its ability to perform under normal and extraordinary circumstances, took several weeks to complete.http://www.world-nuclear-news.org/NN-Barakah-containment-building-passes-tests-0407168.html
