Concrete placement is milestone at Vogtle 3

US-based Georgia Power announced that workers have completed the final concrete placement inside the containment building which houses the Vogtle-3 reactor unit, under construction in Georgia.

The company said the operation is an “important step” that allows for the installation of machinery to be used for loading fuel into the reactor core.

Georgia Power said it has already ordered the first batch of nuclear fuel for Vogtle-3, but did not give a delivery timeframe.
