Nuclear Energy is Clean Energy
Georgia Power recently announced continued progress in the construction of the two-reactor expansion to its Plant Vogtle nuclear power plant. Bechtel is proud to partner with Georgia Power to deliver this important project – the only ongoing construction of new nuclear generation currently in the United States.
Vogtle is important because nuclear energy is important. It’s clean, efficient, safe, and must play a role in our energy future.

For more than 40 years, we have partnered with industry, academia, and allied governments to make the world a cleaner, safer, and more secure place. We have performed environmental cleanup work at more than 500 contaminated sites across the world, managed operations at vital national security projects, and helped the U.S. and other countries reduce threats posed by weapons of mass destruction. Their results will benefit people and the environment for centuries to come.
Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant, Colorado
