Toshiba looks to reschedule US nuclear projects

Talks with local companies, governments aim to avert more cost overruns

| Japan

TOKYO -- Toshiba is working to negotiate new schedules for two long-delayed nuclear projects in the U.S., seeking to set more-achievable completion timelines and avoid hemorrhaging additional funds.

Nuclear unit Westinghouse Electric has entered into talks with South Carolina Electric & Gas and the local government about the schedule for two reactors at the V.C. Summer plant in South Carolina. It aims to push back completion of one unit from late August 2019 to around April 2020 and the other from late August 2020 to that December.
