Safety is the top priority during the construction of Vogtle Units 3 and 4. Teamwork and communication are among the keys to safe work practices at Vogtle 3 and 4. Unit 3 and 4 cooling towers frame the Unit 3 Nuclear Island. Feedwater heaters are mounted in the Unit 3 turbine building. Looking down from atop the Unit 3 turbine building. Construction continues at the Unit 3 nuclear island. Workers near the Unit 3 Nuclear Island. The top of the Unit 4 cooling tower is seen from inside the Unit 3 Nuclear Island. At Vogtle 3 and 4, skilled craft workers are dedicated to quality construction. The base of the massive Unit 3 cooling tower. In the Modular Assembly Building, work on the CA20 module is almost complete. Workers inspect the Unit 4 CA20 module in the Modular Assemby Building. Construction continues on the Unit 4 Turbine Building. From left, the Unit 3 cooling tower and the Unit 4 Nuclear Island. textA crane reaches toward the Unit 4 Nuclear Island.

Vogtle Unit 4 CA20 structural module under fabrication in the Module Assembly Building. Workers weld a section of the Unit 4 CA01 structural module. Inside the Module Assembly Building, work continues on the Unit 4 CA20 structural module. The Unit 4 turbine building continues to take shape. Close-up view of the Unit 4 turbine building. Another perspective of the Unit 4 turbine building. From left, construction continues on the Unit 3 turbine building, nuclear island and auxiliary building. Unit 4 CA05 module is 'rigged for lift' to the heavy lift derrick. Workers set rebar at the Vogtle 3 and 4 construction site. Construction continues at the Unit 3 nuclear island. A worker sets rebar at the Vogtle 3 and 4 consruction site. Safe work practices are the first priority for workers at Vogtle 3 and 4. At sunrise, the massive Unit 4 CA05 module is ready for the meticulous lifting and placement process. The heavy lift derrick moves the 90-ton CA05 module toward the Unit 4 containment building. Guided by the heavy lift derrick, the CA05 module nears the Unit 4 containment building. Only a few feet remain until the CA05 module is set inside the containment building. Workers precisely guide the CA05 module into place inside the Unit 4 containment building. The CA05 module is set inside the Unit 4 containment building. With the Unit 4 nuclear island in the foreground, construction continues on a containment ring and turbine vessel in the distance. A bird's-eye view of Unit 3.

Workers prepare the KBO4 module prior to placement inside the Unit 4 auxiliary building. The KBO4 module, the first mechanical module to be installed in Unit 4’s nuclear island, is lifted into place. Designed to process and discharge waste gas, the KBO4 module is set inside the Unit 4 auxiliary building.
