Tom Tramm is a Project Manager with Certrec’s Office of Licensing and Compliance team. He has over 40 years of experience in the construction and operation of commercial nuclear power plants. A well-rounded nuclear engineer, Tom has managed licensing, engineering, performance improvement, and independent safety assessment groups in support of the construction and operation of 13 Exelon plants in Illinois. As a consultant, many utilities have benefited from his insightful and timely support on regulatory issues at both the operating and decommissioning stages of the nuclear plant life cycle.
At Exelon, Tom directed a broad range of licensing activities for the construction and operation of Dresden, Quad Cities, LaSalle County, Zion, Byron, and Braidwood. This included acquiring the initial operating licenses for the duplicate Byron and Braidwood plants. His responsibilities covered both routine NRC communications and management of contested licensing proceedings.
At ZionSolutions, Tom recently managed all aspects of nuclear licensing, environmental and quality programs for the permanently shut down two-unit Zion plant. This included the first-of-a-kind transfers of NRC operating licenses, decommissioning trust funds, and environmental permits from Exelon to ZionSolutions LLC for their groundbreaking turnkey decommissioning project.
Tom currently provides specialized regulatory support for other US plants that are making the transition into decommissioning. He also supports nearly all US nuclear plants on regulatory issues relating to dry fuel storage.
Mr. Tramm and his family reside in the Chicago area. He is a long-time member of the American Nuclear Society, the Air and Waste Management Association, and is a Registered Professional Engineer in Illinois.
