Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO), the main contractor of the AE nuclear power plant, said it has successfully completed the fuel loading for the operation of the Barakah nuclear power plant 1 based on cooperation with the Emirates Nuclear Energy Corp. (ENEC), the owner of the plant.

Since the UAE nuclear power plant operator Nawah, which was established as a joint investment between ENEC and KEPCO, obtained an operational license on Feb. 17, Barakah Nuclear Power Plant 1 has completed fuel loading and begun full-scale operational preparations.

This provided an opportunity to prove the excellence of Korea's nuclear power plant technology and construction capabilities to the world and laid the foundation for solidifying the foundation for a second overseas nuclear power plant order.

In addition, the first Arab country to be equipped with nuclear fuel and the operation of nuclear power plants is expected to contribute to stable supply of electricity in the UAE, a KEPCO official said.

Since signing the contract with ENEC in December 2009, KEPCO has been working together with Team Korea to safely supply four APR1400 reactors, Korea's first export-type nuclear power plant developed by the country.

KEPCO will further strengthen cooperative relations with UAE through the fuel loading of its first nuclear reactor and provide full support for the operation of its second, third and fourth reactors, the official said
