Rafako and Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power (KHNP) have signed an agreement on cooperation in the implementation of nuclear energy projects. It is about joint participation in nuclear projects carried out both in Poland and in other countries, Rafako reported.
“The fact that the largest players on the nuclear energy market in the world sign such agreements with Rafako clearly proves that we are a natural partner for all those who are seriously interested in participating in the Polish Nuclear Power Program. We have excellent design and implementation facilities as well as human resources. Our company has been creating and modernizing the Polish energy sector for over 70 years and is the best guarantor of a successful energy transformation – necessary to meet environmental conditions, but also necessary in the face of changes in the natural resources market, ”said President Radosław Domagalski-Łabędzki, quoted in the release.
