NUE was declared at 1017, an equipment rental employee was fatally injured when equipment he was working on contacted a high voltage line just outside the gates.

Slightly more detail...

Condolences to the worker's family. IP2 had a fatality involving a transformer a while back - they are a piece of equipment to be treated with respect.... :(

Chemistry Supervisor position is open because our RPM is the previous chemistry sup.  Not sure about the project manager position.

If you like the snow, come on up.

I re-read the memo and it also stated it wasnt going to be filled externally, so maybe they are still looking for internal applicants since it wont increase the number of benefits participants.

Does anyone know if starting in Becker as a GPH (general plant helper) would be a good start to someday moving up into nuclear ops or chemistry.  Let me know what you think.

Depends on your background and qualifications.  Hard to get in to any helper position here or there.  But if you have the right background you could just wait until ops has a posting and apply then.  Easier to get in to PI as a chemist.

Plant Tour
« Reply #36 on: Feb 15, 2010, 10:57 »
Hello,

I am a 5yr nuke home on leave and working for this plant when my time is up would be ideal. I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible for me to tour the plant or who I could direct such a request to. I have always wanted to see around a commercial plant and this one would be perfect. I am in the Twin Cities area until the 26th, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Chase

The plant is literally on I-84 W a mile or so past Monticello town on the right (north) side of the freeway.

I-94, exit at Hwy 25.  If you were going East on 94, take a left at the exit.  If going west on 94 take a right.  Take a left on Cr-75.  Go up about 4-5 miles, plant driveway is on the right.  If you go over a bridge on 75, you went too far.

When working monticello in jan/feb, how do you keep a diesel from freezing up while at work?

I don't have a diesel however, a friend of mine rigged up a second battery (with max cold cranking amps on both batteries) so he could keep the glow plugs on for 5 minutes or whatever was needed to warm the diesel up enough to start.  Down side was he just sat there in the cold waiting until he could start his vehicle.
