Georgia Power completes placement of 2nd steam generator at Vogtle nuke

Georgia Power Co. on Oct. 12 said it placed the second 1.4 million-pound steam generator into unit 3 of the Alvin W. Vogtle Nuclear Plant near Waynesboro, Ga., completing installation of the AP1000 unit's needed two generators.

The first steam generator was placed into the same unit in August. Southern Co. subsidiary Southern Nuclear Operating Co., which operates the existing units at the plant, is overlooking activities at the site.

Other recent construction milestones at the Vogtle expansion include concrete "super placement" for unit 3 and lift of the 237-ton CA03 module for Unit 4.

Georgia Power recently received the Georgia Public Service Commission's approval for its $8 billion capital program. The PSC will issue its final order in February 2018 whether to approve the Vogtle expansion project's revised cost estimates and construction schedule. Georgia Power owns 45.7% of the new units, while the remaining co-owners are Oglethorpe Power Corp., the Municipal Electric Authority of Georgia and Dalton Utilities.
