South Korea is in talks to build a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK as ministers scramble to boost the country's energy supplies.
KEPCO's reported debt (excluding capital leases) increased to around KRW80.5 trillion at the end of 2021 from KRW69.7 trillion at the end of 2020.KEPCO's financial metrics are likely to recover to a range between 10%-13% in 2023-2024 mainly because of the announced tariff increases in 2022 -- 4.9 won/kilowatt-hour (kWh) each in April and October to compensate for higher input costs and 2.0 won/kWh in April for environmental compliance costs. Additionally, two nuclear reactors with an aggregate capacity of 2.8 gigawatts (GW), whose power generation costs are much cheaper than coal and gas power, are scheduled to start commercial operations in 2022-23.Nonetheless, the expected financial metrics in 2023-2024 will remain marginal for KEPCO's baa2 Baseline Credit Assessment (BCA), which is a component of its rating.Any delays or cancellation of the announced tariff increases will have an adverse impact on KEPCO's financial metrics.
