Dismantling the San Onofre nuclear power plant is more than 60% completed
While it may be difficult to see as drivers zoom past the two distinctive domes on the west side of Interstate 5, the dismantlement of the San Onofre nuclear power plant is more than 60 percent complete.
“We’re just under two-thirds of the way through,” said Vince Bilovsky, director of the decommissioning project at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station, known as SONGS for short. “We’re where we need to be.”
Demolition work on the eight-year, $4.7 billion project started in October 2020 and is scheduled to finish by the end of 2028.
