About Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power
Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd (KHNP) joined COG as a member in 1986 and is Korea’s largest electric power utility. In 1976, construction began on the Wolsong Generating Station, the first third-generation CANDU reactor export to Asia. Since then, three more CANDU units were added to KHNP’s Wolsong facility.
KHNP is owned by Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), an arm’s length government corporation. KHNP operates 23 nuclear power units with five new units currently under construction. Out of the 23 operational units in Korea, three are CANDU-6 reactors located at the Wolsong plant. Nuclear provides about 32 per cent of total power generation in Korea.
A critical example of COG-KHNP collaboration has been in the implementation of the utility’s decade-long safety improvement plan for which COG has served as a training partner..
