Construction of any large facility, such as a nuclear power plant or a large dam, runs the risks of cost overruns if design and/or construction is delayed. The V.C. Summer commercial nuclear power plant in South Carolina, which was in the process of building two new reactors, has experienced enormous cost overruns and schedule delays such that the project owners have canceled the project. Lessons Learned from the construction of commercial nuclear power plants are directly applicable to current DOE EM major capital assets projects. DOE has recognized these issues and have addressed them in the updated DOE Order 413.3B, Program and Project Management for the Acquisition of Capital Assets, and other recent policy directives.
