Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP) Joined forces with its cooperative SMEs in March in an effort to tap the Turkish nuclear material and equipment market in Istanbul.
Twenty-two nuclear material and equipment makers, as well as KHNP’s cooperative parts suppliers, participated in the Turkish market exploration team, arranged by KHNP along with Korea Nuclear Partners (KNP), KHNP’s export company. Five cooperative SMEs of Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction also joined under a “shared growth” initiative.
KHNP President Chung Jae-hoon participated in a ceremony to open the 2019 International Nuclear Power Plants Summit (INPPS 2019) on March 5. In his speech at the event, President Chung stressed the need for Korea and Turkey to collaborate for the successful implementation of the Akkuyu nuclear power plant now under construction and the planned Sinop nuclear power plant project. Turkey is a geopolitical point between EU and Russia.
The participating Korean companies also participated in a variety of seminars, designed to ramp up their export capabilities, such as “Turkish Market Trends Seminar,” hosted by KOTRA’s Turkey Trade Office, “Turkish Nuclear Power Market Status Seminar,” hosted by KNP, and “Turkish Legal Environment Seminar,” hosted by Jipyong, a Korean law firm. Each of the participating Korean companies was given the chance to contact about 10 buyers through a one-on-one matching program of the INPPS 2019
