A South Korean consortium has secured a five-year
maintenance deal for a nulcear plant in the United Arab Emirates. Seoul’s trade ministry says a consortium of
Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power and KEPCO KPS won the bid to maintain the UAE’s plant in
Barakah. Barakah is the site where KEPCO has been building
four reactors. The contract also calls for the consortium
to provide experienced manpower to Nawah Energy Company, the plant’s operator. The maintenance deal, however, at 5 years,
was shorter than the 15 years the South Korean companies had hoped for.
