NRC Names New Senior Resident Inspector at Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Plant
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Neil Day as the senior resident inspector at the Beaver Valley nuclear power plant in Shippingport, Pennsylvania. He joins resident inspector Ron Rolph at the two-unit site, which is operated by Energy Harbor.
“Neil Day’s broad experience in both the reactor and nuclear materials realms means he is well-positioned to take on this new role,” said NRC Region I Administrator Ray Lorson. “The skills he has acquired will help the NRC maintain a strong onsite presence at Beaver Valley.”
Day joined the NRC in 2008 as a structural engineer in the Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards at the agency’s headquarters in Rockville, Maryland. He subsequently worked as a project engineer in the Division of Reactor Projects in the NRC’s Region I Office, and later as a resident inspector at the Grand Gulf nuclear power plant in Mississippi and the Comanche Peak nuclear power plant in Texas.
Day holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Pennsylvania State University.
Each operating U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors who serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring safety-significant projects and interacting with plant workers and the public. Resident inspectors can serve at a reactor site for up to seven years.
