Mr. Larry Maghrak has over thirty-five years’ experience in management and operations in numerous nuclear industry sectors including the Department of Energy and naval nuclear shipyards. His experience includes 13 years’ establishing reactor plant conditions and controlling testing on various naval nuclear propulsion plant designs. He has 16 years’ experience providing daily technical oversight of operations associated with the Rocky Flats D&D project, and the construction of DOE depleted uranium hexafluoride conversion facilities. He has additional expertise in conduct of operations, work control, quality management and personnel safety.
Mr. Maghrak has a B.S. in Occupational Education, is a CSP and has an inactive top secret clearance.
Mr. Maghrak achieved qualification on multiple naval nuclear power plant designs, and was assigned as an Assistant Chief Test Engineer for Selected Restricted Availabilities on nuclear powered cruisers and aircraft carriers at the Alameda Naval Air Station, CA. He routinely supported nuclear power plant repairs and modifications at remote locations in a manner that ensured project schedules were met.
As a Rocky Flats DOE Facility Representative he provided timely input on contractor performance associated with B771/774 Plutonium Recovery & Processing Facility deactivation, dismantlement, decontamination and demolition. He was instrumental in the development and implementation of an observation reporting database that reflected real time observations using the ISMS functions and guiding principles as a frame of reference.
As a Facility Representative at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant, Mr. Maghrak provided the primary daily technical oversight during the construction of the Depleted Uranium Hexafluoride (DUF6) Conversion Facility, and the C-400 Interim Remedial Action Project at the Paducah Gaseous Diffusion Plant. His early identification of DUF6 Conversion facility deficiencies associated with safety significant process piping system pipe support installation and unapproved HVAC modifications for zones providing filtration of potential radioactive contamination allowed repairs to be made before the facility ORR. He was a major contributor to the DUF6 Facility Representative and Safety System Oversight qualification process. His routine technical oversight at the C-400 Electrical Resistance Heating /Soil Vapor and Groundwater Treatment Systems identified installation deficiencies and a potential cold weather design vulnerability that were corrected before operations. He was involved with the successful initial startup and operation this trichloroethylene contamination treatment system.
