Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP), a Korean nuclear power company, together with Iljin Electric, completed the production of two main transformers and auxiliary equipment at the Cernaboda nuclear power plant in Romania, and shipped them on February 18.
The project is about 7 million euros (about 10 billion won), and KHNP is responsible for project management and quality management, and Iljin Electric is responsible for equipment design and production .
The main transformer is a central installation of a nuclear power plant which converts the high voltage of the electricity produced by the generator and connects it to the electrical system.
KHNP encourages participation in large follow-on projects such as the construction of tritium disposal facilities and waste storage facilities in Romania.
The company estimates that this supply of main transformers will have a positive impact on future commercial orders by building trust with the customer.
In addition, KHNP should be able to consolidate its position as a major supplier in the European operation and maintenance (O&M) market.
The shipped equipment will pass through Masan Port in South Korea for export to Romania and will be installed in Cernaboda Unit 1 around May or June.
“The Romanian nuclear power company, the ordering company, also strongly buys the technology of our nuclear power plant company for the fact that it has completed the production of an ultra-high voltage transformer which requires high technology even under difficult circumstances due to COVID-19,” said KHNP Chairman Jeong Jae-hoon. “This achievement is due to the organic cooperation with Iljin Electric, and we will continue to actively support the advancement of Korean nuclear energy in foreign markets.”
