The completion of two nuclear reactors under construction at the Virgil C. Summer nuclear generating station in South Carolina, USA, is likely to be delayed, said Scana Corp, but there are no plans to scrap the USD14.2 bn project.
Westinghouse is the main contractor for the project. It’s parent company, Toshiba, hit the headlines last week when it announced that it would writedown USD6.3 billion in its nuclear operations.
Westinghouse and Toshiba also told Scana the completion date for the Unit 2 reactor would be pushed back from August 2019 to December 2020, the same completion date for the Unit 3 reactor.
