Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. Ltd (KHNP) is South Kore​a's largest electric power company. 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 operates 23 nuclear power units and another five are under construction. Out of the 23 operational units, three are CANDU-6 reactors at the Wolsong Nuclear Power Site. Nuclear power provided about 32% of total power generation in South Korea as of April 2019. ​​​
