Ukrainian nuclear energy Energoatom is interested in cooperating with Korean companies in infrastructure and nuclear projects, said the company’s CEO Petro Kotin during a meeting with South Korea’s Ambassador to Ukraine and Moldova Kim Hyung-Tae on Tuesday (12 March).

Mr Kotin said that the Ukrainian company is preparing for the construction of the first unit with the AP1000 reactor and the completion of two additional units at the Khmelnytsky nuclear power plant (NPP). The construction of the first small modular reactor using Holtec technology is also planned in Ukraine, he noted.

“Energoatom is looking for partners for our projects. We have already purchased a reactor island from the Westinghouse company for Unit 5 at the Khmelnytsky NPP, and we will gladly consider the offer of Korean companies regarding the turbine island,” Mr Kotin said.

Ambassador Hyung-Tae expressed his support for Ukraine. He noted that South Korea had condemned Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine from the very beginning, joined the anti-Russian sanctions, and provided Ukraine with humanitarian aid and support for recovery, with an emphasis on the power-generating sector.

The Ambassador also said that Korean companies are “very interested” in participating in construction projects and supplying equipment to the Ukrainian companies. The Korean government helps domestic companies in their intentions, he added.
