NRC Names New Senior Resident Inspector at Peach Bottom Nuclear Power Plant
Nuclear Regulatory Commission officials in King of Prussia, Pa., have selected Scott Rutenkroger as the new senior resident inspector at the Peach Bottom nuclear power plant. The two-unit site is operated by Exelon Nuclear and is located in Delta, Pa.
Most recently, Rutenkroger was the senior resident inspector at the Limerick nuclear power plant in Limerick, Pa. He previously served as the senior resident inspector at Vermont Yankee in Vernon, Vt., and as a resident inspector at the James A. FitzPatrick nuclear plant in Scriba, N.Y.
Rutenkroger joined the NRC’s Region IV office in Arlington, Texas, in June 2004 as a reactor inspector. He is a graduate of the NRC’s Nuclear Safety Professional Development Program, a two-year training program that provides a broad and a specialized perspective of NRC activities. He earned a doctorate in electrical engineering, as well as master’s and bachelor’s degrees in nuclear engineering, from the University of Missouri-Rolla.
Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors. Rutenkroger joins resident inspector Peter Boguszewski, serving as the agency’s eyes and ears at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring significant work projects and interacting with plant workers and the public.
