DRESDEN NUCLEAR POWER STATION, UNIT 2: NRC Names New Senior Resident Inspector at Clinton Nuclear Power Station


By Press release submission | Oct 7, 2019


Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Oct. 4.

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Jim

Beavers as the new senior resident inspector at the Clinton Nuclear

Power Station. The plant is located in Clinton, Ill., 23 miles south of Bloomington.

Beavers joined the NRC in 2009 as an emergency preparedness

inspector in Region II. He served as a resident inspector and as an acting

senior resident inspector at the Duane Arnold nuclear power plant. He

has also been an acting resident inspector at the Davis-Besse, LaSalle and

Perry nuclear power plants.

Beavers served six years in the United States Navy aboard the

USS Tecumseh in various roles, including as submarine propulsion plant

supervisor. Afterwards, Beavers worked as an NRC-licensed reactor

operator at the Browns Ferry nuclear power plant and as a senior reactor operator instructor at the Perry

nuclear power plant. He has also worked with the International Atomic Energy Agency as an

emergency preparedness and response officer.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in applied science and technology from Thomas Edison State

College (now known as Thomas Edison State University).

Each commercial nuclear power plant site in the United States has at least two resident

inspectors who monitor day-to-day operations. Beavers joins NRC resident inspector Dan Sargis at the

Clinton facility. They will serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections

and monitoring significant work projects.
