Vogtle Installs Steam Generator

Work at Plant Vogtle continues with the installation of a massive steam generator in one reactor.

Georgia Power announced that the first steam generator was lowered into the nuclear island at unit 3 last week.  This marks the first major lift under which Southern Nuclear is in charge of oversight activities, taken over from Westinghouse.

The 1.4 million-pound, 80-foot generator was built in South Korea and shipped to the Port of Savannah and delivered to the site by rail, the company said in a news release. The generators use heat from the nuclear core to convert water into steam for power generation. Each of the two new-generation AP1000 reactors will require two steam generators, all of which are currently on site, the company said.
