New NRC Inspector Assigned to Three Mile Island Nuclear Plant
Regulatory Commission officials have selected Brian Lin as the new
resident inspector at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant in
Middletown, Pa. The plant is operated by Exelon Nuclear.
Lin’s technical experience and commitment to safety will assist the NRC
in carrying out its mission of protecting people and the environment
and ensuring the safe operation of Three Mile Island,” said NRC Region I
Acting Administrator David Lew.
Lin joined the NRC in 2013 as
a project engineer in the NRC’s Region I office in King of Prussia, Pa.
Prior to joining the agency, Lin served in the U.S. Navy’s nuclear
submarine force for 15 years as a reactor operator and a submarine
officer. Since leaving active duty, he has continued his Naval service
in the Reserves. Lin earned a bachelor’s degree in mechanical
engineering from Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Va.
U.S. commercial nuclear plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors.
They serve as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting
inspections, monitoring significant work projects and interacting with
plant workers and the public.
Lin joins NRC senior resident inspector Dave Werkheiser at Three Mile Island. They can be reached at 717-948-1165.
