Nuclear News from the Midstate


Welcome to NuHub, the Midstate's global connection for nuclear opportunities,
As co-chair for NuHub, it is my pleasure to announce the launch of NuHub and the first of what will be a quarterly journal of the latest advances in research, technology, development, and progress in the nuclear industry of the Midstate of South Carolina.

Columbia and the Midstate region are rich with opportunities for the nuclear industry to flourish, and as you'll see below, there has been no shortage of ink spilled by our local and national media praising the successes of the industry over the past quarter. We are a region well-stocked with leaders in the nuclear industry. The Midstate has researchers pioneering the latest technologies at the University of South Carolina, utilities like SCE&G and Santee Cooper are investing in launching the next wave of nuclear power generation in Jenkensville, private firms are producing the technology necessary to power these initiatives, and our teachers at Midlands Technical College and South Carolina State University are training the next wave of highly skilled employees to keep our plants running safely. We are proud to serve as a voice for them all.

While we have existed for over a year, we are still relatively new to our friends and colleagues in the community and industry. Please accept our introduction and join us as we embark on the next wave of the nuclear renaissance in South Carolina.

Dr. Sonny White
Co-chair, NuHub
