NFS names new president

Nuclear Fuel Services has named David Amerine as president of the Erwin facility.
Amerine, a native of Sandusky, Ohio, has more than 40 years of experience with increasing levels of responsibility in the nuclear industry, including service with the U.S. Navy.
He joined Babcock & Wilcox, Technical Services Group in 2009 as vice president for technical services.
From 2005 and until joining B&W, which acquired NFS in January 2009,worked for the Parsons Corp., where he held the position of senior vice president of business as the Savannah River Site.
He has held other positions with nuclear-based companies for years, and Amerine joins NFS at a critical time.
The company’s production has been shuttered for more than two months as NFS and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission continue to investigate incidents that happened last fall at the plant.
More than 150 workers are back on the job after a mandatory three-week layoff, but there is still no time line for when production will be back up.
Amerine told The Erwin Record in his first media interview since being named president that he plans to attend the Tuesday, March 2, NRC public meeting at Unicoi County High School’s Auditorium. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. It was originally scheduled for Erwin Town Hall but was moved when NRC officials felt the facility was not large enough.
Amerine pledged that NFS will operate in a safe manner and believes the company has been moving in the right direction with a focus that safety is paramount to successful operations.
He also said the 53-year-old company will continue to be a good community partner
Dave Kudsin had been president of NFS since B&W’s ownership became official.
