The Cherokee Nuclear Power Plant is an uncompleted energy project outside Gaffney, South Carolina. In the early 1970s, Duke Power started construction on a three-reactor nuclear power plant
at the site. However, the project stalled due to economic problems by
the early 1980s, leading to the project’s eventual abandonment. In 1987,
the power plant was the site of an underwater film studio built by Hollywood director James Cameron, for the film The Abyss.
