Kori Unit 3 is a 900 MW pressurized water reactor that has been in service since 1985.  All operating nuclear power plants in Korea are required to perform a Periodic Safety Review (PSR) every ten years against eleven safety elements per the Korean nuclear safety authority, and review of seismic qualification of safety-related equipment is one of these elements.  Korea Hydro and Nuclear Power (KHNP) retained SGH to perform an experience-based seismic adequacy verification for equipment important to safety as part of the PSR for Kori Unit 3.
