KHNP begins installing new APR1400 nuclear reactor


Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Corporation (KHNP) began installing a new reactor on Thursday at the Sinhanwool 2 plant inside the Uljin Nuclear Power Complex in North Gyeongsang, where the Sinhanwool 1 is also currently under construction.

The Sinhanwool 2 reactor was manufactured by Doosan Heavy Industries.

The reactors are locally developed, and known as APR1400 - the same type as the Singori 3 and 4 reactors in Gyeongju, and those exported to the United Arab Emirates.

The model is capable of generating 1,400 megawatts of electricity and is designed to last up to 60 years.
