Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power has awarded four contracts worth a total of CAD 22 million to SNC-Lavalin subsidiary Candu Energy. The awards involve field inspections, operation assessment and thermal-hydraulic computer code updates. The inspections are intended provide assurance to KHNP and South Korean nuclear regulator that the Candu nuclear reactors at the Wolsong site continue to be safe to operate until the next planned inspection.

SNC-Lavalin is the steward of the Canadian Candu nuclear reactor technology. The Wolsong Candu nuclear power plants are owned and operated by KHNP. The four units at Wolsong are 700 MWe class Candu 6 reactors. Units 2, 3 and 4 began operation in 1997, 1998 and 1999 respectively.

The complany will inspect fuel channels and carry out pressure tube sampling for Wolsong Units 2, 3 and 4, starting this year. An engineering analysis and assessment will be completed on the fuel channels and fuel channel components for the three units. The update of the thermal-hydraulic computer codes will support KHNP in updating the safety analysis report.
