Perhaps the Koreans (KEPCO) should deserve a chance with their AP1400 at the Moorside location. They seem more successful than Areva or Toshiba-Westinghouse in pulling off such a large construction project and delivering it on time. KEPCO's project in the UAE has been quite successful.

And another decade is lost to the restarted planning and approvals process.

Private Equity Weighs Nuclear Option: Westinghouse Electric

Quote:
On the eve of the bankruptcy of Westinghouse Electric Co. -- a major blow to the nuclear industry -- around 10 private investment firms were circling. Victorious among them was Apollo Global Management LLC, which won a bidding war to lend Westinghouse $800 million to fund operations as it tries to reorganize. The loan now gives the private equity firm a prime seat at the table where the company’s future will be determined.


Well, time will tell whether Apollo Global Management's $800M loan is a victory or not. If Westinghouse can't repay it, then they'll regret their "victory".
