 South Korea Dedicates 23rd and 24th Nuclear Reactors

Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power dedicated two nuclear reactors Monday -- the country's 23rd and 24th.
The Shin-Wolsong 1 and 2 units will generate about 3 percent of the country’s electricity output. Shin-Wolsing 1 began operations July 31, 2012. Shin-Wolsong 2 began operations July 24 of this year.
The two reactors were the last of the modified OPR-1000 design, which helped to lay the foundation for the Advanced Power Reactor-1400 (APR-1400). The APR-1400 is currently being built in the United Arab Emirates at its Barakah nuclear power plant.
