Nuclear Systems Operator (RO - NRC Licensed)
Operate Quad Cities Units 1 & 2 in accordance with established, approved station & company procedures and also in accordance with NRC procedures and the Federal Code of Regulations.
As a Licensed Reactor Operator, operated the QCNPS Unit 1 & 2 Nuclear Reactors, 930 MW generators and support equipment during normal and abnormal operating conditions. Performed required surveillance activities in the control room while interfacing with and supervising non-licensed operators in the plant. Performed pre-task briefings with non-licensed operators and the various maintenance groups for maintenance activities and surveillance activities. Performed training and evaluations of NLOs during their training activities on their quest of earning a Reactor Operator license. During the off-shift week, my duties included generating clearance and tagging orders for the upcoming workweek. Utilizing as-built drawings, engineering modification drawings, electrical prints, etc., I would write the clearance order to sequence the proper order for taking equipment out of service for maintenance departments to do preventative maintenance and repairs, as appropriate. Walk down of equipment, cables, interiors of switchgear, etc. would involve close proximity to energized circuitry requiring knowledge of and use of appropriate protective equipment for performing the task.
