 Veolia to treat water at Korea nuclear power plant

Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. (KHNP) picked Veolia to treat the water used to supply eight nuclear reactors.
 
Veolia is treating all of the feedwater at the 7,900-MW Kori Division nuclear power plant in South Korea under a three-year operations and maintenance contract. The company will treat fresh water for steam production, seawater, via an electrochlorination process for the cooling system, and wastewater, except that containing radioactive contaminants. Electrochlorination uses electrolysis, a chemical reaction that is produced by passing a direct current between two electrodes immersed in seawater.
 
Veolia is expected to treat more than 173,000 cubic meters per day of water, the equivalent of 55 Olympic-size swimming pools.
