 ​About Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power 

 

Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd (KHNP) is South Kore​a's largest electric power company. It generates approximately 31.5% of the total electric power generated in South Korea. In 1976, construction began on the Wolsong Generating Station in South Korea, Canada's first third-generation reactor export to Asia. Since then, South Korea has added three more CANDU units to its Wolsong facility. 

The CANDU nuclear power plants are owned and operated by Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), a wholly government-owned corporation. KHNP operated 24 nuclear power units and another 8 are under construction. Out of the 20 operational units, four are CANDU-6 reactors at the Wolsong Nuclear Power Site. Nuclear power provided about 30% of total power generation in South Korea in 2014. ​​​
