Sucessful Joint Venture
Manufacturing of Control Element Assembly
KEPCO NF expanded the business by forming KW Nuclear Components Ltd. (KWN), a joint venture with Westinghouse, the U.S., for manufacturing of CEA (Control Element Assembly) to be supplied to CE-type nuclear power plants in the U.S. and Korean standard type nuclear power plants in Korea.
The commercial production of the first KWN control element assembly line started in April 2011. KWN is competent enough to not only fulfill domestic demand, but also offer the CEAs to the customers over the United States and other countries operating CE-type nuclear power plants. It is expected to create about 10 million dollar-import substitution effect.
