South Korea's new administration will seek to resume currently suspended
construction of two nuclear reactors in the coastal county of Uljin in
2025, government and industry sources said.
In its key
policy implementation plan, apparently written in April, President Yoon
Suk-yeol's transition team proposed restarting the construction of
Shin-Hanul reactors No. 3 and No. 4 in the first half of 2025, according
Yoon said multiple times during his election
campaign that he would scrap the Moon Jae-in administration's nuclear
phase-out drive, Yonhap news agency reported.
The project to
build the two 1,400-megawatt reactors has been on hold since 2017. They
had been scheduled to be completed by 2023.
