Vogtle nuclear reactor vessel slips and gets 'stranded' between Savannah, Burke County 10 Jan 2013 A 300-ton nuclear reactor vessel bound for Plant Vogtle was stranded briefly in south Georgia this week after a malfunction with the specially designed rail car moving the nuclear component from Savannah to Burke County. "The platform that contained the RV (reactor vessel) during transport became misaligned with the Schnabel railcar, so the railcar stopped immediately," said Georgia Power Co. spokesman Mark Williams. Georgia Power officials said the malfunction occurred less than a mile from the port of Savannah. Plant Vogtle is undergoing a $14 billion expansion that involves building two new [deadly] Westinghouse AP1000 nuclear reactors.
