The Tennessee Valley Authority's Watts Bar 2 nuclear reactor is about 81% complete, said Mike Skaggs, TVA's senior vice president for nuclear construction. The plant will load fuel in the reactor by June 2015 and start operation by December 2015. "As the team continued to meet safety, quality, cost and schedule targets, we shifted our focus onto completing commodities, like valves and hangers, within specific systems and releasing those systems for testing. This is moving the project toward our major completion milestones," Skaggs said.
