Today, August 31, 2017, as promised – Georgia Power provided their filing deadline for the utility and presented a schedule and cost-to-complete for the two expansion units at Plant Vogtle, with a go / no-go decision.

The announcement was a GO!

Georgia Power announced that it will file with the Georgia Public Service Commission its recommendation to complete construction of the two AP1000 units that constitute the Plant Vogtle expansion (Vogtle Units 3&4).

In an early morning press release, Georgia Power announced its decision to continue the project (which will now be subject to a six month review by the Georgia PSC) and added that the project’s co-owners (Oglethorpe Power, MEAG Power and Dalton Utilities) are in agreement with the decision.

In the same release it was announced that construction management for the project will be taken over by Bechtel Corporation, who will work for Southern Nuclear, a subsidiary of Southern Company; Southern Company is Georgia Power’s parent company.  Southern Nuclear has effectively taken over as prime or lead contractor for the project. Westinghouse, formerly the prime contractor, has long been expected to step back (under bankruptcy) support the project as a supplier of technology / equipment.
