The federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission has appointed a new senior resident inspector for the Vermont Yankee nuclear plant.
David Spindler will be one of two inspectors at the Vernon reactor. He’ll act as the federal agency’s eyes and ears.
Spindler joined the NRC in October 2006 as a boiling-water reactor training specialist at the agency’s headquarters outside of Washington. He had worked at the FitzPatrick nuclear plant in New York state and was a reactor operator in the U.S. Navy.
