Morris Thermal Engineering - Designing and Building a Greener Future

The team at Morris is proud to have provided the concrete cooling systems for construction of Georgia Power’s Vogtle Unit 3, the first nuclear reactor to be brought online in seven years (see article below). Morris is also in the process of replacing the ice condensing safety systems at TVA’s Watts Bar Unit 2.

Morris is invested in the future of our environment and our engineering staff works tirelessly to make global contributions towards cleaner energy.

Monday marked the first time a new nuclear reactor has begun delivering power to the electric grid in the United States in nearly seven years. Nuclear energy does not generate the greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change.
The unit 3 reactor at Plant Vogtle (near Waynesboro, Georgia, has started commercial operation, primary owner Georgia Power said on Monday. This follows preliminary tests in March.
The reactor, an Westinghouse AP1000, is generating approximately 1,110 megawatts of energy, which can power an estimated 500,000 homes and businesses, Georgia Power said.
The last time a nuclear reactor started delivering energy to the power grid was in October 2016, when the Tennessee Valley Authority began commercial operation of its Watts Bar Unit 2 near Spring City, Tenn., according to Scott Burnell, a spokesperson for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Prior to that, there hadn’t been a new nuclear reactor turned on since Watts Bar 1 in May 1996.
The unit 3 power reactor at Vogtle will deliver electricity to customers for the next 60 to 80 years, Georgia Power CEO Kim Greene said in a statement. The nuclear industry is celebrating the milestone.
