A half-finished nuclear power plant that Duke Energy gave up on 30 years ago sits in Cherokee County near Gaffney. Duke bailed on a $600 million investment on the banks of the Broad River and sold off the half-finished warehouse and containment unit, which was used to film The Abyss. Duke has bought back the property and is considering trying again to finish construction.
