Scott Manley is a motivated, results-driven professional with forty (40+) years of experience, including five nuclear facility start-ups, nuclear waste clean-up, construction management, facility demolition, training, and emergency planning. He functions effectively at all organizational levels and demonstrates initiative, forward-thinking, adaptability, and strong interpersonal skills.
In his current role, Mr. Manley provides Tank Farm Readiness Support to the Department of Energy and serves as a key participant in achieving start-up readiness for nuclear facilities on the Hanford site. He most recently supported the Contractor and DOE readiness assessments for the Tanks Side Cesium Removal (TSCR) facility, which is a Hazard Category 2 nuclear facility. Upcoming assessments include the operational readiness assessment for the Liquid Effluent Retention Facility (LERF) Upgrade to a hazard category 3 nuclear facility and the re-start of the 242-A Evaporator which is a hazard category 2 nuclear facility.
With Orano, Mr. Manley provided nuclear safety support to the tank farms Direct Feed Low Activity Waste program (DFLAW). His last assignment was to evaluate the impact of new waste streams and facility modifications on the current Hazard Categorization for the Effluent Treatment Facility (ETF) at the Hanford Site. Prior to that he was part of a safety basis development team in which he developed sections of the DSA and TSRs for the Hanford Tank Farms, Tank Side Cesium Removal (TSCR) Project. Was also part of a team assigned to develop the safety documentation for the Immobilized Low Activity Waste (ILAW) transporter design. Performed annual criticality safety assessments, as requested. As part of the Tank Farms Mission Integration organization, evaluated, coordinated, and aligned nuclear safety and engineering programs for the Tank Farms and the Waste Treatment Plant to ensure a successful start-up and commissioning of the Direct Feed Low Activity Waste Vitrification (DFLAW) program.
With Bechtel, Mr. Manley provided nuclear safety support for the Waste Treatment Project (WTP). As a High-Level Waste (HLW) nuclear facility manager, managed a team of 20 nuclear safety engineers during the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) phase of the High-Level Waste Facility (HLW) at the Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP). His major accomplishments included completing hazard analysis and control selection for the re-design of the radioactive liquid waste effluent system, a major revision to the existing PDSA which included a full-facility hazards analysis and control selection. Also, he developed a project execution plan and a criticality safety evaluation report.
While working for URS in nuclear safety, Mr. Manley led independent project teams of 10+ technical personnel using the Hazards & Operability Studies (HAZOP) and What-If methodologies to perform hazards analysis on the WTP Low Activity Waste Facility (LAW). He also led the production of HA Reports utilizing multiple writers that provided central elements to develop of the Documented Safety Analysis (DSA).
Mr. Manley has worked all over the United States at a variety of commercial nuclear and Department of Energy (DOE) sites.
