  30. 30. 301STNuclear Concrete• Nuclear Island Basemat is the foundation for the ReactorContainment Building and the Reactor Auxiliary Buildingand is the first safety related concrete placement• Nuclear Island Basemat is six (6) foot thick and containsover 6800 cubic yards of concrete• This placement of concrete was rehearsed during a 1/6size “mock-up” in September 2012 to ensure a successfulcontinuous pour• The actual placement was delayed several months due torebar discrepancies in the design and final resolutionwith the NRC• In March 2013 the full size Nuclear Island Basemat wasplaced successfully in approximately 51 hours

  32. 32. 32Some of the Facts• Over 22 million cubic yards of earth were moved duringexcavation and backfill while preparing the site forconstruction• The Nuclear Island area was excavated to a depth ofapproximately 80 ft to remove unsuitable marl material andreplaced with Class I backfill• The 70,000 square foot Simulator/Training Center took 1year to complete and currently houses all operator trainingactivities• The 13 story Modular Assembly Building is over 300 ft longand is where structural modules are assembled and loadedon heavy haul transporters for moving to the appropriateplant location• There are 23,000 tons of steel, 16M feet of cable, and 546,00ft of piping associated with the two units• There are currently over 2200 workers on site and the peakworkforce will be around 5000
