In 2010, Stanford physicist Siegfried S. Hecker had the opportunity to inspect a nuclear facility in Pyongyang, North Korea. He visited North Korea often, but this time he was stunned by the sophistication of the plant. 

In an article on Hecker's visit, the author said that North Korea had other nuclear plants, including a "graphite heavy water plant" which was later abandoned. I don't know if the author meant a plant to produce graphite and heavy water, or he meant a graphite / heavy water reactor. Either way, is anyone familiar with this plant, and its location?

Thank you.
