The 30-day interim agreement between Westinghouse, SCANA and Georgia Power ended last Friday with both agreeing to an extension.
Georgia Power said that they had added another two weeks to the current interim agreement. Another decision on whether or not to keep the project going will be announced May 12, the company said in a press statement released after the close of business day on April 28th.
In the next two weeks “the parties will continue to work on finalizing a new service agreement which would, if necessary, assure that Westinghouse continues to provide design, engineering and procurement services to Southern Nuclear as part of their assumption of control over construction management,” the statement said.
Georgia Power’s agreement was announced just a few hours after SCANA and Westinghouse agreed to extend the construction project through June 26, a six-week reprieve.
