That is the beauty of capitalism.  People come and go, but if the demand for workers go up and pay is raised to attract people, they will come.  The machine will keep running even if not with the current bunch of workers.

Not to mention the Final Rules due in 2016 which may give any business pause w...hen being served notice they have a 300 year liability:

...The staff considers a timeframe of up to 300 years of storage to be appropriate for
characterization and prediction of aging effects and aging management issues for EST. The
staff may adjust this analytical period based on the expanded gap assessment results, expected
in 2012, which will identify technical and regulatory needs to support the development of an EST
framework and WC update...

...Holtec officials say the company expects to apply for a permit from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission within a year. State permits would also be required. Licensing could take three years.

“It’s a tough road to get any nuclear project off the ground, otherwise we would have repositories and interim storage facilities all over the country,” Heaton said. “We have great partners and the will to get it done.”....

So, I'm gonna post this in three places because something has happened which has not happened since nukeworker.com was launched on the internet,...

An operating license has been granted to a commercial nuclear power plant in the US of A.

So, here's a quick set of numbers to let sink in,....

$19 billion?  Seems dubious.

yeah but they are spending quite a bit of money to set up the possibility, not the 19 billion, but the hundreds of millions to even investigate.

Photo album for the project

https://www.flickr.com/photos/scegnews/sets/72157629244341909/

That's a lot of pictures, thanks. There a few interesting complicated crane lifts that would give DOE reps ulcers. I watched a demolition that cut a large utility bridge away from an active building attached to the demo. When the final cut was done I did not see it move until the crane lifted it away, pretty amazing The DOE facility rep was expecting the worst and was visibly nervous until the lift started.

not a U.S. snapshot, but fairly balanced article of nuclear power in Eastern Europe...expensive, but still in their hearts.  some updates as well of how far along new reactors are in different countries.
