Many current Atkins/SNC-Lavalin employees were part of the original team to transition ownership and start the decommissioning of Zion including the General/Project Manager, and executive Management team. Early activities included working with Exelon on the License Transfer Application, a prompt DECON PSDAR, and numerous other licensing activities associated with reconfiguring the security, fire protection, and quality assurance plans.
