 More Than 1,800 Cubic Yards of Concrete Placed at Plant Vogtle Nuclear Project

Workers with Georgia Power, a unit of Southern Co. (NYSE: SO), placed more than 1,800 cubic yards of concrete to fill the walls of the Unit 3 CA20 module at the Plant Vogtle expansion project in Georgia.
The 45-hour continuous pour is a key achievement for the vertical construction of the shield building and will provide structural support for the installation of select mechanical modules. The CA20 module, which weighs more than 2.2 million pounds and is more than five stories tall, was placed in March 2014. It will house various plant components, including the used fuel storage area.
The two Westinghouse AP1000 reactors are now more than 60 percent complete based on contractual milestones. Unit 3 is scheduled for completion in June 2019, and Unit 4 in June 2020.
