Workplan signed for "dream energy project"

The seismic bearings supporting the ITER Tokamak were of special interest to Seung-Kyoo An, CEO of KEPCO and his colleagues. Explanations were provided by Basha Syed from the Buildings & Site Infrastructure Directorate. (Click to view larger version...)
The seismic bearings supporting the ITER Tokamak were of special interest to Seung-Kyoo An, CEO of KEPCO and his colleagues. Explanations were provided by Basha Syed from the Buildings & Site Infrastructure Directorate.
When Seung-Kyoo An first came to the ITER construction site two years ago to take a look at what he calls "the dream energy project," there wasn't much to see besides a barren platform. "Things have certainly changed," the CEO of the Korean company KEPCO E&C commented. Together with Vice-President Woo Sung Jeong and Seismic Analyst Sang Hoon Lee, An returned this week to the ITER site to sign off on the 2012-2013 work plan for the cable engineering support service contract, which was signed 30 April in Seoul. Italian prosecco and homemade tiramisu added a sweet note to the proceedings.
