Despite a lengthened schedule, significant progress is evident at the construction site of two new Westinghouse AP1000 reactors at Southern Co.'s Vogtle nuclear plant. The following photos, taken by Southern in January and February, show the project's recently started cooling tower, containment vessels, condensers, moisture separator reheaters and other components. Early site preparation at the plant near Augusta, Ga., began in 2009, and units 3 and 4 are scheduled to come online in 2017 and 2018.
