Work Experience
02/04/2008 to Present
Nuclear Mechanical Planner, Sun Technical
Contracted to Progress Energy, Crystal River Unit 3, Crystal River, FL 34429
Also Shared Resource to H.B. Robinson Nuclear Plant, Darlington, SC
Current Work Scope:

Supporting the CR3 Containment Repair Project providing general planning oversight and support. This
includes reviewing work plans to ensure alignment with site procedures and policies, auditing document
revisions and scope changes to ensure that the latest revision of all Work Plans and scope changes are
available for review/use.

Supporting CR3 EPU Phase 3 preparations for R17. This phase of planning requires performing
numerous Field Walkdowns to breakdown the removal/installation processes and to take accurate field
dimensions of affected system piping and associated hangers. Additionally, I have been working closely
with all engineering departments to solidify the EC package details.

Supporting Part 73 Compliance (10 CFR 73.55) Security upgrades as necessary.

Supporting station maintenance planning activities as necessary.
Shared Resource (H.B. Robinson)
4KV Recovery Project Planner
Work Scope:
For the period of 5-1-2010 through 7-9-2010, I accepted an assignment to travel from CR3 to Progress Energy’s
H.B. Robinson Nuclear Plant in Darlington, South Carolina to support their outage under the supervision of RNP
Planning Supervisor Steve Moore. SGT (the Steam Generating Team) was the contractor performing the repairs
and developing the work instructions. In this position, I acted as the Progress Energy Planner to carry out all
administrative functions within PassPort which included the following:

Worked closely with SGT Management, SGT Engineering and SGT Scheduling Departments as well as
Progress Energy Management, PE Engineering, and PE Scheduling, and PE Operations departments


Generated Work Order tasks for tracking SGT’s work performance, to appropriately charge materials
and resources, and to allow the initiation and tracking of equipment clearances

Searched the equipment database and allocated materials as necessary

Planned Work Order tasks for RNP Scaffold builders, Painters, Insulators, Electricians, or Instrument &
Component technicians to perform support work as needed

Planned detailed work instructions for Operations, and RNP Testing group with plant resource support
to satisfy Post Modification Testing requirements for all work performed

Worked diligently to stay ahead of SGT’s field engineers/work package writers so when their work
packages became approved for use, it could be attached to the appropriate PassPort WO task,
approved, printed, and administrative Work Start Permission Obtained
I was assigned to this project because of my familiarity with the Work Management/Project Controls process
established between SGT and Progress Energy for the CR3 Containment Repair Project. The process needed
to be incorporated at H.B. Robinson to provide a consistent work flow during the 4KV Recovery Project. When I
arrived at Robinson, no one was aware of the process or how it was going to work. To aid in the widespread
communication of the process and associated roles and responsibilities, I created documents to explain the
processes, roles and responsibilities, and expectations. These documents are available on my virtual resume:

EPU Phase 2 Work Scope:
Assisted in the total planning effort for Phase 2 of the three phase Extended Power Uprate (EPU) project. The
ultimate goal of EPU is to upgrade the plant to generate 1080MW/e. The scope of Phase 2 EPU included the
replacement of large components, and to upgrade existing plant equipment listed below to meet EPU final
design requirements:
Moisture Separator Reheaters, Low Pressure Feedwater Heaters, Secondary Cooling Pumps and
Motors,Miscellaneous Heater Drain Valve replacements, Turbine by-pass valve and actuator
replacement, Secondary Cooling Pump by-pass piping system upgrade, Auxiliary Steam By-pass line to
allow turbine roll-up and generator ventilation testing using steam from fossil units while the reactor is
down-powered and Isophase Bus Duct Cooler fan replacement
Responsibilities:
 Working closely with Design Engineering during development and implementation of Engineering
Change (EC) Packages and Work Orders (WO)
 Providing information for schedule updates as needed
 Developing detailed work instructions using required procedures, specifications, and drawings
 Welding planning for all welded attachments (B31.1 piping and AWS D1.1 structural); reference
Corporate Welding Manual to determine the requirements for pre-heat, interpass temperature, and post
weld heat treatment, create weld maps and weld data records to appropriately identify and document
the installation and inspection of each weld. Coordinate with Welding Engineers to ensure
documentation of appropriate inspection criteria per weld.
 Work closely with Quality Assurance and QC inspectors to ensure that applicable Hold Points and
inspections are documented appropriately within the work package prior to work package approval.
 Planning for Post Maintenance Testing; coordinate with test engineers to develop test instructions for
new equipment or troubleshooting existing equipment. Allocate test equipment as necessary.
 Reviewing Work Orders to verify completeness and accuracy prior to closure and processing through
Document Control
 Specify and order parts/materials as needed during EC and WO development and implementation; and
work closely with Procurement Engineering and warehouse storekeepers to expedite material delivery
and issuance



Perform pre-planning walk-downs in any type of environment or conditions to evaluate and re-evaluate
the process in which work is to be performed, and also to take measurements and validate design
drawings.
During implementation: Perform walk downs to provide general oversight, ensure that proper placekeeping is enforced, ensure that up-to-date design drawings are being used, take observations as work
progresses, and promote a Safety Conscious Work Environment.
Notable Achievement:
Created an interactive desktop procedure utilizing screenshots and hyperlinks to be shared with our EPU
Project Planning department during the outage to better coordinate and enforce alignment between night-shift
and day-shift work processes. This document ensured that our entire department modified Work Orders in a
consistent manner. I included hyperlinks to the appropriate planning documents and tools to improve work
performance. This saved a lot of outage time collectively, and improved the quality of our Work Orders. A copy
