(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Park Sang-don = KEPCO[015760]announced on the 19th that the UAE nuclear power plant operation corporation, a joint venture between the company and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Atomic Energy Corporation, has obtained an operating license for the Baccarat Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 from the UAE Nuclear Regulatory Authority on the 17th (local time).

As a result, the Baraka Nuclear Power Plant Unit 3 is ready for full-fledged operation after refueling.

With the start of fuel loading, UAE nuclear power plant No. 3 is expected to start commercial operation after undergoing the remaining processes such as a step-by-step output increase test and performance assurance test.

KEPCO President Jeong Seung-il said, “After the start of commercial operation of UAE nuclear power plant unit 2 in March, unit 3 also achieved another goal of refueling. I will,” he said.

KEPCO won the UAE nuclear power plant project in December 2009 and has built four Korean-style nuclear power plants (APR1400) in the Baraka region near Abu Dhabi, UAE. This is Korea’s first overseas nuclear power plant project.
