SCE&G / Santee Cooper plans progressing...

South Carolina Electric & Gas / Santee Cooper's plan to build two Westinghouse AP1000 plants at the existing Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station in Jenkinsville, South Carolina moves along with today's news that the NRC has completed, satisfactorily, the Final Environmental Impact Statement for this project. There are only a few more hurdles, including the final RPA or safety analysis as well as some review of changes Westinghouse made to the certified AP1000 design in the interim period, which should both be no problem.

Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station has on site one Westinghouse three-loop PWR plant, rated 2900 MWt / 966 MWe and which entered commercial operation in January 1984.
