Korean Hyundai E&C ‘ready’ to join Ukrainian nuclear energy projects

Acting CEO of Ukrainian state-owned nuclear energy company Energoatom Petro Kotin held a meeting on Wednesday (14 February) with Regional Director of South Korean construction company Hyundai E&C Hyung-Hwan Park to discuss the priority areas for development of the nuclear power generation in Ukraine.

Energoatom’s Acting CEO mentioned that the company is currently working with partners on the implementation of new nuclear projects. In particular, the construction of new power units using Westinghouse AP1000 technology at the Khmelnytsky nuclear power plant (NPP) in western Ukraine and the introduction of small modular reactor (SMR) technology in the country.

“In order to achieve the set goals, we are interested in cooperation with new partners. So Hyundai E&C could participate in these projects,” Mr Kotin said.

Hyundai E&C’s Regional Director expressed his support for Ukraine and conveyed Hyundai’s great willingness to deepen cooperation between the companies. The South Korean company is ready to join Ukrainian projects on the expansion of nuclear generation, as well as the implementation of joint innovation and research projects, Energoatom noted in a press release.
