SCE&G and V.C. Summer Nuclear Station co-owner, Santee Cooper, placed on Jan. 10 the first steam generator at a Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear plant in the U.S.

The steam generator weighs approximately 1.5 million pounds, measures 20 feet in diameter, and is more than 80 feet long. It is one of two steam generators required for V.C. Summer Unit 2, which is currently under construction. Steam generators transfer heat from the reactor to convert water into steam.
