South Korean public strongly supports new reactors



The people of  South Korea have decided that construction of Shin Kori units 5 and 6 should continue. South Korea’s President Moon has said he will respect the decision. The decision was made by a “Citizens’ Jury” which voted strongly in favour of the resumption of construction of Shin Kori units 5 and 6, with 59,5% voting in favour. The development of nuclear energy in South Korea has played a vital role in the country’s transformation into an export-oriented technology economy. The country boasts a fully mature nuclear industry and its domestically built nuclear plants now provide some of the lowest-cost electricity on the grid. The country has also successfully exported its reactor technology, the APR 1400, to the UAE and is competing to win further international contracts.
