SNC-Lavalin (TSX:SNC) is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a fuel channel inspection (FCI) contract from Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power Company Ltd. (KHNP) and a fuel channel reconfiguration contract from China’s Third Qinshan Nuclear Power Company Ltd. (TQNPC).

SNC-Lavalin will conduct inspection of the fuel channels of KHNP’s Wolsong units 1 and 3 this year and will also undertake the reconfiguration of the fuel channels of TQNPC’s Qinshan units 1 and 2 this year and next year.

“Winning these two contracts is further evidence of SNC-Lavalin’s strong presence in the East Asian nuclear market,” said Preston Swafford, Chief Nuclear Officer and Executive Vice-President, Nuclear. “We are pleased at the confidence our customers continue to show us in this increasingly competitive market.”
