Experts from Korea and abroad will discuss the dismantling of Kori Unit 1 nuclear power plant (hereafter referred to as the “Nuclear Power Plant”), which was judged to be permanently suspended on June 19th at Hanyang University.
Hanyang University’s Nuclear Decommissioning Research Center (Prof. Yong-soo Kim, the Head of the Research Center) will hold an international workshop for the dismantling of nuclear power plants with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co. at Paiknam Library in Seoul Campus, Seongdong-gu, Seoul from September 11th to the 13th.
At the workshop, 26 experts from 11 countries, including two experts from IAEA, will present the topic on the nuclear power plants dismantling. On September 13th, the last day of the workshop, experts will visit Kori Unit 1.
This workshop is meaningful in that it is the first international academic event led by Korea for the first time in Asia with regard to the dismantling of the nuclear power plant, which has recently become more and more interesting to the world.
On September 8th, professor Kim (the Head of Research) said, “I expect the workshop to be the cornerstone of the dismantling of domestic nuclear plants. We will strive to enter the global demolition market through the experience of demolishing Kori Unit 1.”
Detailed information about the workshop, including the pre-registration for attendance, can be found on the website (http://ndiws.hanyang.ac.kr).
