Work on the two-unit Vogtle nuclear station construction project in the US state of Georgia is on schedule to meet revised targets of commercial operation in November 2021 and November 2022, Stephen Kuczynski, president of Southern Nuclear, said.
Mr Kuczynski told a Public Service Commission hearing on Tuesday that he is optimistic the project will be completed on time.
“We continue to work to our aggressive schedule. We feel that is still achievable,” Mr Kuczynski said. “It is a challenge, but achievable.”
Both units were supposed to be up and running by now, but Georgia Power and state regulators agreed to a new deadline, to have Unit 3 in operation in November 2021, and Unit 4 in November 2022.
