TVA’s (Tennessee Valley Authority) newest nuclear power plant should be generating electricity within the next two years.
With 3,300 employees and contractors working around the clock at the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, TVA is confident the second reactor at the Spring City, Tenn., plant should be licensed by the end of 2015.
Despite earlier delays and cost overruns, the new head of the Watts Bar program says the $4 billion project is on schedule and within the budget TVA adopted two years ago after failing to meet initial projections. Mike Skaggs, senior vice president for TVA, said construction of the second reactor at Watts Bar is now 82 percent finished and work is continuing on installing and testing key systems for the reactor.
