A-Plant Leadership Meets with Retirees

September 27, 2022 -- The Department of Energy’s Portsmouth Site, known by many locally as the A-Plant, has gone by many names over the past 70 years.  However, the one thing that has remained the same is the dedicated workforce behind the site’s success. Once a month, retirees spanning generations of workers gather for lunch and an afternoon of stories and conversation.

The recent luncheon featured three special guests, DOE Portsmouth Acting Site Lead, Jeremy Davis; Fluor-BWXT President and CEO, Greg Wilkett, and Fluor-BWXT Director of X-326 Demolition, Mike Furner.

“It is great to meet with those who spent decades dedicated to the safety and mission of the site and are still invested in our progress,” said Wilkett. “Many of these folks made their homes in southern Ohio early on in the project and raised their families here. They truly are a part of the history of our community.”

The retirees meet the third Thursday of every month at 11 a.m. at Lloyd’s Pizza in Waverly. All are welcome to join.
