Georgia Power announced today the placement of two key floor modules at the Vogtle nuclear expansion near Waynesboro, Georgia. These module placements, referred to as CA35 and CA33, will be followed by large concrete placements inside the Unit 4 containment vessel.
Both CA35 and CA33 are floor modules supporting critical path work in the unit. CA35 is the roof above the accumulator and CA33 is the roof above the chemical volume control system. Weighing nearly 72 tons, the two modules bring the elevation inside containment to 107 feet – the elevation of the maintenance deck. Since placement, additional work will begin installing rebar on the north side of containment, which will be followed by a concrete placement. These milestones support the upcoming installation of structural steel pieces that support the subsequent floor elevation.
