The inspections will provide assurance to KHNP and the Korean nuclear regulator that the CANDU nuclear reactors at the Wolsong site continue to be safe to operate until the next planned inspection.

All the contracts are within SNCL Engineering Services, the cornerstone of our strategy moving forward to greater growth and support for our partner and customer.

SNC-Lavalin will inspect fuel channels and perform pressure tube sampling campaigns for Wolsong Units 2, 3 and 4, all to begin in 2020.

An engineering analysis and assessment will be completed on the fuel channels and fuel channel components (including calandria tubes) for Wolsong Units 2, 3, and 4.

The thermalhydraulic computer codes (CATHENA and NUCIRC) update will support KHNP in updating the safety analysis report for Wolsong units 2,3 and 4.
