Nuclear Matinee: Vogtle Nuclear Construction Update

It’s been more than two years since Vogtle Units 3 and 4 began to rise from the landscape near Waynesboro, Georgia—though construction officially began just last March with pouring of the Unit 3 basemat concrete, and a few months ago in November with the Unit 4 basemat. Turbine buildings, cooling towers, AP1000 reactor operator training… 2013 saw great strides toward the first new commercial nuclear power reactors in the United States in 30 years. Join host Joe Washington for a tour of the most recent milestones achieved in this amazing construction project.

Thanks to Southern Company for producing this fine video.

    Great video!

  2. This looks like an amazing beautiful building. Not to mention the power it will produce. I think the worst idea the power industry has made over the last fifty years has been to allow old nuclear power plants to remain in operation. They give a bad name to what we are now able to accomplish with our new technology. Not to mention that they are a hazard. If we can replace every old power plant with one like this, we will be sitting in a very energy efficient and safe place.
