BUCHANAN – The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Gerond George as the new senior resident inspector at the Indian Point Unit 3 nuclear power plant in Buchanan.
George’s prior assignment was as a senior reactor inspector at the NRC Region IV office in Arlington, Texas. He joined the agency in June 2003 as a reactor inspector in the Region IV office.
George holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering and aerospace engineering from the Oklahoma State University-Stillwater. He also earned a master’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Texas-Arlington.
“We’re pleased to have an inspector with Mr. George’s experience and capabilities on-site at Indian Point as Unit 3 goes through this important period during which it will prepare for permanent cessation of operations,” said NRC Region I Administrator David Lew.
Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two resident inspectors who monitor day-to-day operations. They serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections and monitoring significant work projects.
