Building Vogtle

The work of this monumental achievement was captured through beautiful photography throughout the entirety of the project, to both document and celebrate the extraordinary journey that was building Vogtle Units 3 & 4.

“The completion of the expansion of the Vogtle nuclear generation plant to include Unit 3 and now Unit 4 is a hallmark achievement for Southern Company, the state of Georgia and the entire United States.” — Chris Womack Chairman, President and CEO, Southern Company

“It’s an exciting time to be a Georgian as our state continues to grow and thrive, with new demand for more clean energy each year. The new Vogtle units are a key piece of our strategy to meet the energy needs of our customers today, and for decades to come.” — Kim Greene, Chairman, President and CEO, Georgia Power

“To see that hunk of dirt that was out here — that big hole in the ground become a full operating power plant, and to know that I’ve been a part of it? That has been the absolute best feeling.” — Toni Ward-Buxton, Southern Nuclear, Organizational Effectiveness Coordinator

“For decades, Southern Nuclear has operated our nuclear fleet with the highest standards of safety and reliability. We’re proud of the way we brought these units online, and now we’re proud to operate this extraordinary facility 24/7/365 at the same levels of excellence for our co-owners and the communities we serve.” — Stephen Kuczynski, Chairman and CEO, Southern Nuclear
