First AP1000 Steam Generator Placed in the US

  • By Admin

On January 10th, VC Summer placed the first AP1000 steam generator in the US.

The generator weighs approximately 1.5 million pounds and measures 20 feet in diameter and is more than 80 feet long.  It was lifted into place by one of the world’s largest cranes.

When the steam generator arrived from South Korea at the Port of Charleston, it went on record as one of the heaviest energy project shipments for the South Carolina Ports Authority. Careful coordination among many highly skilled experts was required to offload the steam generator from a cargo ship onto a specialty railcar designed to transport heavy, oversized load.
