South Korean cable maker Taihan Electric Wire was chosen as the top-quality power manufacturer of the year by the Korea Electric Power Corp., according to the firm Tuesday.

Taihan said its underground cables for distribution received an award at the 2019 BIXPO Awards hosted by Kepco in Gwangju last week.

The evaluation was made based on quality factors such as defect rate, failure rate, electricity quality and violation of fair trade. Taihan was selected as one of the top 10 manufacturers among 661 companies and is the only cable manufacturer among the 10 awardees, the firm said.

Through this selection, Taihan’s products will undergo less demanding inspection tests when supplying equipment to Kepco in the future.

“We are pleased to be recognized for the highest level of quality competitiveness and will contribute to the stabilization of the power grid through continuous quality control of cables,” said Taihan CEO Na Hyung-kyun.
