Southern’s US$14bn investment in the two new Vogtle 3 and 4 units at Waynesboro, Georgia will be the first new nuclear plant on US soil in 30 years.
PwC’s team was selected to provide hands-on execution and advisory help on the biggest, riskiest, most politically charged construction project the utility had ever tackled. PwC is supporting the company through a myriad of construction-related tasks and issues including financing, regulatory matters, schedule analytics, continual projections of end costs, and the numerous challenges associated with managing contracts worth billions of dollars.
“With such a time gap from previous projects, the project consortium faces the challenge of re-establishing expertise and getting back up to speed. The PwC team is able to add considerable experiential knowhow. It includes people with substantial engineering and project management experience, including direct experience of previous nuclear projects.” (PwC)
