Posted By: Kathryn Freemon News Releases,

The Augusta Metro Chamber is pleased to welcome Dave Olson with Savannah River Nuclear Solutions (SRNS) as the guest speaker for the Chamber’s September Member Economic Luncheon to be held Tuesday, September 24 at the Augusta Marriott. The luncheon, presented by Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, will focus on ‘Growing the Mission at SRS’ and begins at 11:30 am.


The U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry recently visited SRS to discuss the evolving mission, commenting on the “very bright" future of the site and sharing discussions on its modernization and investment, and new missions capitalizing on the enormous growth potential at SRS. Commenting further on what that vision and growing charge would mean for the region, guest speaker Dave Olson, Savannah River Plutonium Processing Facility (SRPPF) Mission Director for SRNS, will discuss the dynamics of transforming the MOX facility at the Savannah River Site to fulfill PIT production, and the impact of these growing missions for jobs and new partnerships.


Olson is responsible for supporting the National Nuclear Security Administration's (NNSA) ongoing MOX transition effort and the SRPPF Project for SRNS at the Savannah River Site. He has over 37 years of experience in nuclear materials processing and waste treatment in multiple government facility operations and projects. Olson has previously led prime contracts at both SRS and the Hanford site in Washington. Prior to his return to SRNS, he held the position of Chief Nuclear Officer for Fluor Global Government Services (GGS) in Greenville, SC, where he was responsible for oversight and support of the U.S. Department of Energy’s Environmental Management projects in the GGS portfolio, which included SRNS.
