Federal regulators have appointed a new senior inspector at the Nebraska nuclear power plant that recently reopened after nearly three years offline.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission said Wednesday that Max Schneider will be the new senior resident inspector at Fort Calhoun nuclear power plant.
Fort Calhoun resumed generating power in December after a prolonged outage to address regulators' safety concerns and make sure flood damage was repaired. Fort Calhoun is owned by the Omaha Public Power District.
The NRC keeps at least two inspectors at every nuclear power plant. Schneider will join resident inspector Jacob Wingebach at Fort Calhoun.
