Tom Dieter to lead SONGS decommissioning

10 October 2018

AECOM has appointed Tom Dieter to lead the AECOM-EnergySolutions joint venture to decommission the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS). He will serve as the executive sponsor for SONGS Decommissioning Solutions (SDS) under the Southern California Edison contract.

Mr. Dieter has more than 32 years of experience managing commercial and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) nuclear projects. He has decommissioned to completion government-owned test reactors, three large high-risk plutonium and uranium production facilities, spent fuel ponds, and numerous nuclear operations support facilities, as well as commercial nuclear power facilities.

Safely decommissioning the San Onofre nuclear plant is a significant priority for Southern California, and it is the largest commercial nuclear plant decommissioning to date in the United States, including used fuel management, radiological decommissioning and site restoration.

The joint venture is responsible for the dismantlement and decontamination work, restoration of the site and reduction of residual radioactivity to levels that allow for future site use.
