Vice President, Mechanical Design & Reactor Operations
Mr. King is a recognized international expert in design and maintenance for fast reactor systems. His career spans more than 30 years at Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) and Idaho National Laboratory (INL), where he was responsible for mechanical system design and operational safety of the EBR-II reactor. He had a lead role in the major fast-reactor design initiatives undertaken by the Argonne National Laboratories, leading the effort to incorporate lessons learned from EBR-II in future reactor designs, forming the basis for the ARC reactor.
He was the senior technical advisor for design of systems supporting the decommissioning of the BN-350 reactor in Kazakhstan, a sodium-cooled fast reactor, working closely with the Kazakhstan National Nuclear Center.
He has published more than thirty papers on sodium reactor technology and related topics. He was a leading member of the ASME boiler and pressure vessel code sub-committee that developed design standards for sodium-cooled fast reactor systems.
