Westinghouse Electric Company today announced it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. (KHNP) forming a technological exchange committee that will promote discussion and exchange of engineering capabilities between both organizations.
“Korea’s KHNP, a leader in the Korean nuclear industry, has extensive operating experience,” said David Howell, senior vice president of Operating Plant Business at Westinghouse. “Their international capabilities align seamlessly with Westinghouse’s original equipment manufacturer global position. Together, we will partner to examine cooperative technical discussions and to develop joint business opportunities in the U.S. and other markets.”
