Here’s another snapshot of the unit 1 boiler under construction and construction progressing on unit 2. The structure for the U1 and U2 elevator is clearly visible. The units 1 & 2 turbine deck is there. One of the yellow Bechtel trucks we used to see all over town is in the foreground. Click the image to enlarge.

Nothing runs like a Deere!
