Doosan Enerbility focuses on new materials for small reactors and liquid hydrogen business25. May 2023
Doosan Enerbility, the energy arm of South Korea’s Doosan Group, is focusing on new materials for small-scale nuclear reactors (SMRs) and boosting its liquid hydrogen business, analysts reported in mid-March 2023. Many components and parts used in the hydrogen industry require KC certification or KGS factory registration to be approved for import and sale in South Korea.
SMRs (small modular reactors) are considered the next generation of reactors. They are smaller and produce less power than previous types. The Doosan subsidiary said it had signed a contract with NuScale Power. NuScale Power from the USA is considered a specialist for small reactors, especially for their vessels and control systems. The components are considered essential for the construction of the first NuScale power plants by 2029, which will be used in a commercial plant in Utah. The client is Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems as part of a zero-emission power plant project.
Doosan Enerbility’s liquid hydrogen business expects further growth thanks to government support. For example, Vice President for Trade, Industry and Energy Park Il-Jun recently visited the hydrogen liquefaction plant in Changwon, South Gyeonsang Province and met with industry leaders. The vice minister held out the prospect of a support programme to drive green energy investment and research.
The Korea Gas Safety Corporation (KGS) is a government organisation under the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE). Gas safety regulations in Korea began in 1974 with the passage of the Compressed Gas Control Act. In 1995, the Institute of High Pressure Gas Safety was established, and after several restructurings, the Korea Gas Safety Corporation (KGS) was established in 2001. One year later, KGS was affiliated to MOTIE. KGS was accredited as a Korean Notified Body in 2006 and was also accredited to conduct KCs certification and testing of explosion-proof electrical equipment.
We offer certification services for all product areas, including KC certification for consumer products and especially electronics, KC EMC certification for electronic products and KCs certification for machinery, as well as KCs for explosion-proof products. We are at your disposal for all questions regarding Korea certifications.
Feel free to contact us any time if you need assistance or have any questions regarding Korean certifications like KC, KC EMC, KCs, KCs for explosion safety products or KGS factory registration.
