NRC appoints new resident inspector at Limerick nuclear power plant

Federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) officials in King of Prussia have appointed Larry Grimes as the resident inspector at the Limerick Generating Station in Limerick. He joins senior resident inspector Adam Ziedonis at the two-unit plant operated by Constellation Energy.

At least two NRC resident inspectors are assigned to each operating U.S. commercial nuclear power plant, according to a Nuclear Regulatory Commission press release announcing Grimes’ appointment. The resident inspectors serve as the agency’s “eyes and ears” at the facility, conducting inspections, monitoring major work projects, and interacting with plant workers and the public. Resident inspectors can serve at a reactor site for up to seven years.

Grimes began his NRC career in February 2020, as a project engineer in the NRC’s Region I office. Since then, he completed a training program before being selected as a resident inspector.

Before joining the NRC, Grimes previously worked as a nuclear engineer at Newport News Shipbuilding in Virginia, and served in the U.S. Navy. He earned a bachelor’s degree in nuclear engineering from South Carolina State University.
