South Korea is seeking new export markets for its nuclear technology. They have submitted an application for design certification of the Advanced Pressurised Reactor-1400 (APR-1400) to the NRC (US Nuclear Regulatory Commission).
Four APR-1400 units are under construction in Korea: two at Shin Kori and two at Shin Hanul. Four further APR-1400 units are planned for Shin Kori and another two at Shin Hanul.
The APR-1400 was selected as the basis of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) nuclear power program, with the first four reactors to be operating at Barakah by 2020 under a $20.4 billion contract. Construction of the first two units is underway.
