ABSTRACT
The article highlights the Nuclear Energy Insider Nuclear Construction Summit held in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 26, 2011. Participants and speakers agreed to the plan of building nuclear reactors at Southern Co.'s Vogtle plant in Waynesboro, Georgia in 2012. Shaw Group and its partner Westinghouse Electric were chosen for the project. Speakers noted that the main barrier for the industry is to find qualified suppliers. The impact of the tsunami in Japan on the industry is cited.
