Abstract

This chapter describes Korean experiences and accomplishments in construction, operation, and design development of nuclear power plants. Recognizing domestic energy-resource scarcity, Korea has steadily constructed, operated, and improved nuclear power plants based on self-reliant technologies and accumulated experiences. This chapter describes specifically i) two pressurized light water reactor models (OPR1000 and APR1400) currently being built and to be built in the future, and ii) experience with the pressurized heavy water reactors (CANDUs) built and in operation, in the Republic of Korea.
