-A A +A

Sean Dunagan, a recognized nuclear expert with almost 20 years of experience in the management and operation of deep geological repositories for the U.S. Department of Energy will replace Bruce Covert as president and project manager of Nuclear Waste Partnership (NWP), the management and operating contractor at DOE’s Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.

Dunagan will officially take the reins at NWP in September. He will spend the next two weeks with Covert to ensure a smooth transition, according to a release from the company Tuesday.

“Bruce has done a tremendous job leading the return to transuranic waste operations at WIPP since his arrival in May 2017,” said Mark Whitney, executive vice president of AECOM’s Nuclear and Environment Group. “Under Bruce’s steady hand, NWP returned to steady state operations at the nation’s only deep geologic repository for transuranic waste.

Dunagan has been associated with WIPP since 2002. He served as a manager in research and development, science and engineering in Special Projects and Remote Site Support for SNL-C.
