KHNP, Daejin Nuclear Power Plant Approval for Compensation of 6.9 Billion Won Cost

It is understood that Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power is planning to apply for a cost compensation of 6.9 billion won for the Daejin Nuclear Power Plant (units 1 and 2), which has been closed due to the Moon Jae-in government’s nuclear phase-out policy.

According to data submitted by KHNP on the 30th by Rep. Kwon Myung-ho, the People’s Power, in July last year, the board of directors voted on an application for cost compensation for the Daejin Nuclear Power Plant against the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

At an internal meeting, KHNP estimated that the application for cost compensation for the Daejin Nuclear Power Plant was 6.886.98 million won.

The cost compensation application items and expenses were divided into 2.85 billion won for the preparation of nuclear power plant licenses and 4,081 million won for expenses after obtaining licenses and licenses.

Expenses include service and labor costs for securing new sites for the construction of nuclear power plants and requesting land purchase in the planned area, publicity and advertising expenses used to enhance understanding of nuclear power and local acceptance, business trip expenses and meetings with related organizations etc were included.

Recently, KHNP applied for cost compensation of 727.746 billion won for the early shutdown of Wolsong Nuclear Power Plant Unit 1. In the case of applying for the Daejin Nuclear Power Plant, the amount to be compensated by the Electricity Industry Infrastructure Fund raised through taxes amounts to 734.632 billion won.

Previously, in June last year, the government revised the Enforcement Decree of the Electricity Business Act to compensate for losses resulting from the suspension of the nuclear power plant business with the Electricity Industry Infrastructure Fund (electricity fund) created by deducting 3.7% of the monthly electricity bill paid by the public.

KHNP is also planning to apply for cost compensation for the Cheonji Nuclear Power Plant, which was halted after purchasing the site at 44.5 billion won.

Rep. Kwon said, “The bills for the failure of the Moon Jae-in government’s nuclear disarmament policy have been sent to the public again.
