SCANA to reassess reactor project after Westinghouse bankruptcy <br /> SCANA (SCG -0.2%) and its partner, state-owned Santee Cooper, say they will spend at least the next 30 days determining whether the $14B V.C. Summer nuclear plant construction project in South Carolina should be completed following the bankruptcy of top contractor Westinghouse Electric. <br /> CEO Kevin Marsh told investors on a conference call yesterday afternoon that SCG hopes to see the project finished, since the energy to come from two additional nuclear reactors is needed to meet customer demands. <br /> "Our preferred option is to finish the plants. The least preferred option is abandonment,” said CEO Kevin Marsh. <br /> The CEO says Westinghouse has agreed to stay on the job for the short term, and chief construction contractor Flour (FLR +1.3%) says it will continue work. <br /> Critics say the over-budget and overdue project should be scrapped, fearing cutsomers will be hit with more rate hikes by SCG subsidiary South Carolina Electric & Gas.
