Plant Vogtle has two reactors and is the site of a $14 billion expansion to add two more units – the first such construction authorized in the U.S. in decades. A second nuclear project is under way in South Carolina.
The Vogtle project received a license from the NRC last year for building and operating the new Westinghouse AP1000 units.
Ostendorff joined the NRC in 2010 after a career that included roles with the National Academies, National Nuclear Security Administration and as a counsel and staff member of the House Armed Services Committee.
U.S. Rep. John Barrow, whose 12th District includes Burke County, will accompany Ostendorff on the tour Tuesday.
