Cold hydro testing for Vogtle Unit 4 has been completed. Its completion was required to support the next major milestone – Hot Functional Testing, which is projected to commence by the end of 1st Quarter of 2023.
“The team at Vogtle 3&4 site continues to make important progress as we move closer to bringing on-line the first new nuclear units to be built in the country in over 30 years. Completion of cold hydro testing on Unit 4 is another critical milestone along the path to get us there. These units are a long-term investment for our state and essential to building the future of energy for Georgia. For the next 60 to 80 years, they will help us continue to provide clean, safe, reliable, and affordable energy for our customers, serving generations of Georgians as clean, emission-free sources of energy”, said Chris Womack, president and CEO of Georgia Power.
