The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Jim

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

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