Planned, integrated, coordinated, and scheduled 20 Refuel Floor outages at the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station and Limerick Generating Station. This included all maintenance activities for fuel movement, in-vessel maintenance, in-vessel inspections and repairs, hydraulic control units, nuclear instrumentation, reactor disassembly / reassembly, reactor startup / shutdown, and hydro testing of the Reactor Pressure Vessel.
Assessed the training needs of Reactor Servicing personnel and then developing lesson plans and delivering the training. Prepared first time vital and essential maintenance lesson plans for Control Rod Drive, Hydraulic Control Unit, SRM /IRM, Refueling Platform operation and maintenance.
Served as a refueling floor maintenance technical staff performing all reactor maintenance required, as well as revising procedures and processes to increase efficiency and performance. During this period, I held a Senior Reactor Operator - Limited license that allowed me to move nuclear fuel, irradiated components, and manipulate reactivity controls. In addition to my LSRO duties, I was the system manager for the Refueling platforms at Peach Bottom and Limerick.
Assisted the station maintenance crews with outage refueling activities, wrote refueling procedures and work instructions, and directed maintenance on reactor and reactor servicing components.
