In reaction to the new partnership between the UK and the Republic of Korea to strengthen cooperation on civil nuclear (link), including on large scale, small scale and advanced reactors, decommissioning and waste management, Tom Greatrex, the Chief Executive of the UK Nuclear Industry Association, said:
“This partnership shows that the UK is serious about working with one of the leading civil nuclear nations as we ramp up nuclear capacity to meet energy security and net zero targets and work together to drive Russia from the global nuclear fuel market.
“The Republic of Korea’s nuclear industry has a global reputation for delivering large-scale nuclear projects swiftly and efficiently, be it at home or overseas. We will be looking to emulate that success to meet our own 24 GW target by 2050, and the Republic of Korea could be a very strong partner in that endeavour.
“We hope this partnership can be the foundation for further nuclear collaboration between our two nations.”
