Approximately 5,000 workers will be employed while constructing Unit 3 and Unit 4 at Vogtle.


The Vogtle Power Plant near Waynesboro will be able to generate more electricity than any other U.S. nuclear energy facility when completed. Meanwhile, it is creating roughly 5,000 onsite construction jobs by building two more nuclear units at the plant. Once the project is completed, it will also create 800 permanent jobs. Approximately 900 people including engineers, mechanics and control room operators, lab technicians and security officers oversee the plant’s operations 24 hours a day.

“We are building an advanced facility that is on the leading edge of technology and safety,” said Mark Williams, spokesman of Georgia Power in a ConstructionEquipmentGuide.com article. “These are among the first new nuclear units being built in the United States in the past 30 years. Once complete, they will provide enough clean, reliable, safe and affordable energy to power 500,000 Georgia homes and businesses.”
