The Alan R. Barton Nuclear Plant was a proposed commercial nuclear power plant in central Alabama.

Proposed plant[edit]

Alabama Power Company proposed constructing four 1,159 MWe General Electric Boiling Water Reactors at the site approximately 15 miles southeast of Clanton, Alabama.[1]

The proposed plant was named after Alabama Power Company Senior Vice President Alan R. Barton.[2]

The proposed plant was identified by the acronym ABNP in Nuclear Regulatory Commission correspondence. [3]

1970s cancellation[edit]

Barton 3 & 4 were canceled in 1975 while under 10CFR50 Construction Permit (CP) review. Two years later, Barton 1 & 2 were canceled during the CP review process as well.[1]
