Exelon Generation announced today that Rick Libra has been named site vice president at Limerick Generating Station. Libra has more than 30 years of U.S. nuclear industry experience. The site vice president leads a team of approximately 800 highly skilled employees and manages all aspects of plant operations. Libra replaces Tom Dougherty, who was recently named senior vice president, Mid-Atlantic operations, for Exelon Generation.
Before becoming Limerick site vice president, Libra served as Three Mile Island’s site vice president as well as plant manager. Libra joined Exelon Generation in 2007 as director, corporate design engineering. He served in various management positions for DTE Energy at the Fermi Generating Station in Michigan before joining Exelon.
“I look forward to the new role and working with Limerick’s team of talented and dedicated employees,” said Libra. “I’m committed to building on the many solid relationships we have forged with residents, local officials, and community leaders in the tri-county area.”
Libra has a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and a master’s degree in engineering management from Washington State University. He obtained his senior reactor operator certification from Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station and completed a management development certification program at the University of Michigan School of Business.
Limerick Generating Station is located approximately 21 miles northwest of Philadelphia. The plant produces enough carbon-free electricity to power approximately two million homes.
