Russia is building a nuclear power plant in Egypt.

“The start of construction on the El Dabaa power plant’s first reactor means Egypt is now joining the club of the world’s nuclear energy producing nations,” Rosatom CEO Alexey Likhachyov said at a ceremony launching the construction.

Located on Egypt’s northern coast some 130 kilometers northwest of Cairo, El Dabaa will be Egypt’s first nuclear power plant as well as Rosatom’s first major project in Africa. The plant, which is set to be completed by 2028, will have four VVER-1200 reactors with a total nameplate capacity of 4,800 megawatts.

Watch this project and compare it to the pathetic shitshow unfolding to nowhere down in Burke County, GA with the USSA’s final foray into nuclear energy. Unless the USSA or Israel bombs the El Dabaa plant, it could easily become operational before the final towel is thrown in on the failures at Plant Vogtle.

And I suppose we know which side of the great bifurcation Egypt falls on. Another nation moves up the new pyramid (sorry…) while ours fades into 3rd world obscurity.

UPDATE: This is merely a part of the Vogtle idiocy.
