Workers at Georgia Power’s Vogtle 3 and 4 nuclear expansion near Waynesboro, Georgia, have achieved another major milestone as the process to push water through system piping and mechanical components that feed into the Unit 3 reactor vessel and reactor coolant loops for the first time has begun. Known as integrated flush, this process will clean and remove any foreign material ahead of the initial startup of Unit 3.

Recent milestones have included the placement of the containment vessel middle ring for Unit 4, and the placement of three low-pressure turbine rotors and the generator rotor inside the Unit 3 turbine building.
