SOICHI INAI, Nikkei staff writer | Japan

NEW YORK -- Major U.S. electric utility provider Southern Co. has said there will be a three- to six-month delay in the construction of two reactors by Westinghouse Electric, the American nuclear power unit of embattled Japanese conglomerate Toshiba, at Plant Vogtle in the state of Georgia.

The delay has been proposed for reactors 3 and 4 by Westinghouse, citing the need to analyze regulatory movements and work productivity, Southern said Wednesday.
