DL E&C announced on the 28th that the company signed an MOU on the 27th with KEPCO International Nuclear Graduate School (KINGS) to foster professionals in the nuclear power industry and energy policy field at its Donuimun D Tower in Seoul. .DL E&C Plant Biz Director Yu Jae-ho and KINGS President Yoo Ki-poong attended the signing ceremony. 
 
Both parties decided to cooperate actively for the following through the MOU: fostering of professionals through educational programs; human interchange and co-research; and hosting of symposiums and workshops.

Last month, DL E&C decided to invest strategically in X-Energy, a US SMR developer.
