President Moon Jae-in took part in a ceremony marking the permanent closure of the Kori No. 1 Nuclear Reactor today.
The Kori No. 1 Nuclear Reactor, Korea’s first commercialized nuclear reactor, began operation in 1978. With a 587 megawatt capacity, it has supplied electricity over the past 40 years, but as it reached its operational time limit, the reactor was permanently shut down at midnight on June 18.
Let’s take a look at the video of President Moon Jae-in’s speech.
“The permanent shutdown of Kori No.1 is the first step on the path toward a nuclear-free country. It is a great transition to a safer Republic of Korea…”
“The new Administration will phase out nuclear energy and, at the same time, open a new era of future energy. It will actively nurture a clean and safe energy industry, including new and renewable energy and liquefied natural gas power generation. In connection with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, I will make sure that the energy industry will become a new growth engine for the Republic of Korea.”
