Westinghouse, Shaw to provide two nuclear plants to Southern's Vogtle site

16 February 2010 - Westinghouse and its consortium team member The Shaw Group are under contract to provide two of Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear power plants at Southern's Vogtle site in Georgia. The consortium is also building four AP1000s in China and has been selected to provide no less than 12 additional AP1000s elsewhere in the United States.

"Westinghouse and the entire nuclear energy industry congratulate President Obama and his administration for moving forward with this important program. This action is one that will produce many long-term benefits. It will create thousands of direct and indirect jobs, it will further move the United States toward energy independence, and it will increase the amount of non-polluting electricity generated in the United States."
