Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Jan. 12.
Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials in King of Prussia,
Pa., have selected Stephen Monarque as the NRC resident inspector
at the R.E. Ginna nuclear power plant in Ontario, N.Y. The plant is
operated by the Exelon Corporation. Monarque joined the NRC in February 2000 as a project
manager in the Office of Nuclear Reactors Regulation, Division of
Operating Reactor Licensing, at the NRC’s headquarters in
Rockville, Md. He worked as a project manager in the Japan Lessons
Learned Division and the Office of New Reactors. Monarque
transferred to the agency’s Region II Office in 2017 to join the
Resident Inspector Development Program, where he completed the inspector qualification program.
He also has served as a project engineer.
Before joining the agency, Monarque worked at Mare Island Naval Shipyard, providing
engineering support for overhauling and deactivating nuclear submarines. He earned a bachelor’s
degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Southern California and a bachelor’s
degree in mathematics from San Jose State University.
Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant site 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. Monarque joins Senior Resident
Inspector Jason Schussler at the single-unit plant.
