Southern Company produced a very informative video called Vogtle Timeline. It shows the construction progress of the two new Vogtle Nuclear Power Plants and details the new Nuclear Energy Training program at August Technical College. This video includes segments on the containment vessel components (bottom head) arriving from Japan, pouring concrete for the support buildings, AP1000 module assembly building construction, training building construction, Charlie Nesbitt (AP100 Training Manger) talks about training new employees, operator simulator training, and much more.

Is there any information on the Crystal River Power Plant that is going to be built in Florida?
Ronny, The power plant that was being built in Florida will be the Levy Nuclear Power Plant units 1&2. It will be in Levy County, Inglis Florida. The construction is on hold while Progress Energy waits for the "COLA" Permit.
Is there any information on the Calvert Cliffs power plant in Maryland ?
Duane, Constellation and EDF are negotiating their next step. I am sure you know Constellation is not happy with the Loan Guarantee Program terms and has made and announcement that they cannot proceed with Calvert Cliffs III. EDF wants to build the plant. It remains to be seen if this is a strategic move by Constellation to get better terms or if they really want out of the deal.
You can keep track of the Calvert Cliff news on our Calvert Cliffs page here: nuclearstreet.com/.../calvert-cliffs-nuclear-plant.aspx
Correct me if I am wrong but wasn't the Power Plant originally supposed to be in Inglis, Florida, which is right next to Crystal River? About how long have they been waiting on the "COLA" permit?
Ashley, it looks like the Levy County Plant (next to Crystal River) will have it's COLA Permit in mid 2011. Schedule here: nuclearstreet.com/.../new-reactor-application-schedules.pdf
