South Korea Making Major Nuclear Power Plant Push in Middle East

January 18, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ South Korea and its corporations are making major inroads in the Middle East to build nuclear power plants in the region.

The country and Daewoo have reportedly signed a deal with Jordan to build an atomic research reactor for $178 million. This contract comes on the heels of a deal worth $40 billion to build nuclear power plants in the United Arab Emirates. Next up for the country is a potential order from Turkey that could be worth as much as $3.5 billion.
