The area inside the Unit 3 nuclear island where the reactor vessel will be placed. A construction team member welds equipment inside the Unit 3 nuclear island. Two iron workers safely traverse walls of rebar inside the Unit 3 nuclear island annex area. A view inside the Unit 3 nuclear island of rebar and structural steel going vertical. After a traditional Topping Out ceremony, the final roof truss is lifted to the top of the Unit 3 turbine building. The heavy lift derrick guides the final roof truss toward the Unit 3 turbine building. Workers await the final roof truss, which will raise the Unit 3 turbine building to its maximum height of 254 feet. Workers prepare to set the final roof truss atop the Unit 3 turbine building.
