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 CO2 storage systems. 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 CO2 storage systems is encouraged to complete the brief corporate overview and return it with any additional relevant corporate information to KEDO before the close of business on July 26, 2002. A brief summary of the technical specification for this procurement is listed below to assist companies in making a determination to participate.

Companies selected by KEDO to be considered for this procurement should receive a qualification package from KEPCO around mid October 2002.
