Project managers will get an opportunity to learn first-hand what it takes to run a project for the only nuclear power plant units under construction in the U.S., Georgia Power’s Vogtle 3 and 4. The $25 billion project is expected to deliver clean, sustainable energy and promises to shape the future of the nation's nuclear industry, partly because the reactors are the first new ones to be licensed and to begin construction in the U.S. since 1978. They were originally approved in 2012 at an estimated $14 billion, but endured licensing delays and cost overruns that nearly killed the project. In December 2017, the Georgia Public Service commission gave the green-light to proceed. Where has happened and where is the project now? Project executive David Jones will bring an update to project managers on the incredible journey of this much anticipated project.
David Jones is Southern Nuclear’s vice president of technical support for Georgia Power’s Vogtle 3 and 4 project. His responsibilities include interfacing with Westinghouse to ensure the design is compliant with regulatory requirements, and representing the project on certain licensing issues with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. He previously served as regulatory affairs vice president supporting the numerous regulatory and compliance activities required during the construction of Vogtle 3 and 4.
