BUCHANAN – The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has selected Niklas Floyd as the new senior resident inspector at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Buchanan.
Floyd joined the NRC in 2010 as a reactor engineer in the NRC’s Region I Office in King of Prussia, Pa., as part of the agency’s Nuclear Safety Professional Development Program. Upon completion of the program, he became a reactor inspector in the Region I Division of Reactor Safety, conducting in-service reviews of systems and components at nuclear power plants.
He holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in materials science and engineering from the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
Each U.S. commercial nuclear power plant has at least two NRC resident inspectors.
Floyd joins resident inspector Sarah Obadina, 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.
