SC power company withdraw request to abandon nuclear power plant project

The first two reactors being built in 18 years, Southern Co.'s Vogtle plant in Georgia and SCANA Corp.'s VC Summer plant in South Carolina, are being assembled in large modules. Large chunks of the modules are built off-site, in an effort to improve quality and avoid the chronic cost overruns that all but killed the nuclear industry when the first wave of plants was being built in the 1960s and 1970s.

COLUMBIA, SC (WSPA) – South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) has withdrawn a request to shut down construction of two nuclear reactors at V.C. Summer, according to WLTX.

They report the decision might not mean the company will continue construction.

SCE&G says they don’t think they should move forward with the request with the Public Service Commission now that the state is looking for options to restart construction, according to WLTX.
