S.Korea seals $130m Jordan reactor deal
Amman, March 30, 2010
A South Korean consortium led by Daewoo Engineering & Construction and the government research agency signed a deal on Tuesday to build a research and development nuclear reactor in Jordan, officials said.
The project is valued at $130 million, they said.
Officials said the reactor, the construction of which would begin later this year, would be fully commissioned within five years and would be a precursor to the kingdom's plans to build a nuclear power plant by 2017. - Reuters
