Subject: Opportunity to Participate in Chemical Laboratory Equipment, Package
The Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization (KEDO) is offering
companies from KEDO Member Countries an opportunity to participate in
the procurement of materials, components, and equipment for the construction
of its Light Water Reactor Project in Kumho, North Korea.
This particular opportunity is for the supply of chemical laboratory equipment.
Interested companies who possess the technical capability, production
capacity, and financial stability to offer a competitively priced product
are encouraged to respond. KEDO will review the responses from interested
companies and compile a consolidated list of candidates. This list will
be forwarded to Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), the Prime Contractor,
with instructions to qualify these companies for inclusion in their Pool
of Qualified Suppliers.
Any company interested, and who deems themselves capable of being qualified
in providing chemical laboratory equipment is encouraged to complete the
enclosed brief corporate overview and return it with any additional relevant
corporate information to KEDO before the close of business on March 3,
2003. A brief summary of the technical specification for this procurement
is enclosed to assist companies in making a determination to participate.
This information is also posted on KEDO's Web Page at www.kedo.org.
Companies selected by KEDO to be considered for this procurement should
receive a qualification package from KEPCO around mid May 2003.
If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please feel free
to contact Mr. Soon nam Jung at (212) 455-0207.
