Westinghouse is building the AP1000 plant. First 4 are in China and the next for are in the us in Georgia and South Carolina.

The AP1000 is much better in design than the 40 year old fukushima plants. To point out one major difference the AP1000 reactor coolant loop has been designed to support natural convection, which means in the case of loss of offsite power and loss of back-up diesel generators, the AP1000 will continue to cool the core.

Consultants are mystical people who ask a company for a number and then give it back to them.
