NRC assigns new inspectors to Susquehanna Nuclear Plant

Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) officials in King of Prussia, Pa., have selected Jonathan Greives as the new senior resident inspector, and Travis Daun as the new resident inspector at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station, in Berwick, Pa. The two-unit site is operated by PPL Susquehanna LLC.

Greives joined the NRC’s Region I office in King of Prussia, Pa., in June 2009 as a project engineer. Most recently, he was the resident inspector at the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station. Prior to joining the NRC, Greives served for seven years in the Navy’s nuclear submarine force.

Daun joined the NRC’s Region III office in Lisle, Ill., in April 2012 as a reactor engineer. Daun had previously served for eleven years in the Navy’s nuclear power program, most recently as the engineer officer aboard the nuclear submarine, the USS City of Corpus Christi.

Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors. They serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring major work projects and interacting with plant workers and the public. Resident inspectors can be assigned to any one site for up to seven years.
