By Press release submission | Jan 13, 2020


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.
