South Korea shuts two n-reactors

Seoul, Nov 5 (IANS) South Korea has shut down two nuclear reactors after it found that their components were provided false quality certificates, the government said Monday.

The two reactors at the Yeonggwang nuclear power plant in the southwest were closed until the end of this year to have their parts replaced, reported Xinhua.

"We deeply regret that such an incident took place, but again I point out that this has no direct link to the safety of nuclear reactors," Knowledge Economy Minister Hong Suk-Woo said.

"Comprehensive safety check-ups are necessary at these two reactors where the unqualified parts were used extensively," Hong said.

South Korea operates 23 nuclear reactors, generating about 30 percent of its total electricity. It plans to build 16 more reactors by 2030.
