During the past four years, Nick has been at Plant Vogtle as the designated Subject Matter Expert and Lead Contractor responsible for the I&C Group’s deliverables.
In the execution of his assignment, Nick has provided engineering and technical support to the Digital I&C Group at Vogtle 3&4, including programmatic development of “Disaster Recovery” procedures and instruction sets and implementation. He has also served as Senior Engineering Technical Lead for Scaling Program activities and document maintenance, Unit 3’s plant Start-up, and Unit 4’s Hot Functional Testing. In addition, he recently qualified as a Design Engineer with Southern Nuclear at Plant Vogtle.
Nick is a true Nuclear Power Industry professional with diverse engineering and leadership experience in Domestic and International settings including the United States, Canada, Korea, Taiwan, and Romania, along with direct experience with BWR/PWR/AP1000 & CANDU reactors.
Georgia Power’s Plant Vogtle Units 3 & 4 are the first newly constructed nuclear units built in the United States in more than 30 years. These nuclear units play an essential role in Southern Company’s goal of net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Once all four of these units are operating, expected within the first quarter of 2024, they will be the largest carbon-free generation asset in the country.
GTTSi is proud to be a part of this monumental undertaking, and our participation is made possible by working with extraordinary people like Nick Ertle.
