  •  Offshore wind projects take up to 8 years, (2+ / 0-)

    especially when they are in depths of 40 meters, which is about the average depth that German offshore wind farms are being built in.

    I doubt that there's an even remotely safe nuke plant that can be built in 3 to 5 years.  That's what the nuke industry likes to promise, but the reality is that they take ten or more years to build.

      offshore wind would take awhile.

       We'll see how long it takes to build the ongoing Vogtle nukes in Georgia.   They are fabricating many modular parts offsite in Louisiana and will transport those to the plant site to be bolted together, if there's enough water in the Savannah River to get a barge through.

      The prefabbing is supposed to save time but the NRC was complaining about the low quality of some of the parts.

      Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
