Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction will expand the supply of equipment and materials to trillion won, including the previously secured supply volume and the supplies secured through this investment. In addition, the two companies agreed to expand cooperation in the field of hydrogen and freshwater production using SMR.

The project is progressing smoothly, with the UAMPS signing an EPC preparation contract with Fluor, the parent company of NuScale Power, at the end of last year after the DOE announced a $1.4 billion(approximately 1.6 trillion won)support plan in October last year.
