Two new Westinghouse AP1000 reactors continue to take shape at South Carolina's V.C. Summer nuclear plant. South Carolina Electric and Gas released this video Friday highlighting recent construction progress, including completion of unit 3's mud mat and work on its CR-10 cradle. At unit 2, workers have been preparing the reactor vessel cavity module, condensers, containment structure, cooling towers and other components.
Steve Byrne, SCE&G's chief operating officer, also gave a more detailed summary of activity at the site during a media day in August. Highlights of the following videos include time-lapse footage of the unit 2 basemat concrete pour (at the end of the first video) and placements of the CR-10 module and lower containment vessel bowl (in the second video).
