Savannah River Remediation President Dave Olson is leaving his role with Savannah River Site’s liquid waste contractor for a new position at the U.S. Energy Department’s Hanford Site in Washington state.
“It is with a humble heart I tell you that I have accepted the position of President and Project Manager of Washington River Protection Solutions (WRPS) effective July 1, 2013,” Olson said Thursday in a memo to employees.
The contract involves managing high-level waste in tanks similar to those at SRS. Olson will replace Mike Johnson, a former SRS high-level waste manager, who is retiring from the Hanford position at the end of June.
Savannah River Remediation’s operations and deputy project manager, Stuart MacVean, has been named interim president and project manager.
