Day by day, there’s a little more progress on two new units at Plant Vogtle. Units 3 and 4 are expected to be completed around 2016 and 2017, but none of that can start until the government gives it the green light.
“We’ve moved about four and a half million cubic yards of dirt at this point,” said Carol Boatright of Georgia Power, standing next to what once was a 90-foot hole. Now, it’s nearly filled back in.
“The two things that we’re waiting on right now is for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission to issue their final approval for the AP1000 design, and then, for the approval of the Construction and Operating License for Vogtle 3 and 4,” Boatright said.
