The CA20 module sits outside the MAB before it’s moved to the heavy lift derrick at Unit 4. The heavy lift derrick prepares to hook to CA20 for the lift into the Unit 4 nuclear island. The heavy lift derrick lifts the CA20 module into the Unit 4 nuclear island. The heavy lift derrick lifts the CA20 module into the Unit 4 nuclear island. The heavy lift derrick places the CA20 module into the Unit 4 nuclear island. The gantry crane is lifted and moved into the Unit 3 turbine island. Progress continues on the structural steel on the Unit 4 turbine building. Craft employees work on rebar inside Unit 3 nuclear island. Before sunrise, lights showcase CA20 prior to being hooked to the heavy lift derrick, with Unit 3 nuclear island and turbine building in the background. Workers install base-mat rebar with Unit 4 annex building and nuclear island in the background.

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.
