Work on the Sequoyah Nuclear Plant’s Unit Two reactor is finished ahead of schedule and under budget.
TVA is using remote-controlled robots and what it calls the world’s largest crane to lift the top off the reactor’s containment building and replace a set of steam generators. Seqouyah has been operating since 1980. By replacing the generators, TVA hopes federal regulators will renew its license for another 20 years.
