CHARLOTTE, N.C.—The Babcock and Wilcox Co. has announced a restructuring of its government operations.
Effective immediately, the Babcock and Wilcox Nuclear Operations Group Inc., or NOG, its subsidiary operations at Nuclear Fuel Services, and the Babcock and Wilcox Technical Services Group Inc., or TSG, will operate under a single leader, naming Peyton S. “Sandy” Baker as president and chief operating officer, a press release said.
Charles G. “Chuck” Spencer, the former president and general manager of the Y-12 National Security Complex, will serve as chief operating officer of TSG, leading the business’ day-to-day operations, a press release said.
And Kenneth R. Camplin has been named vice president and chief business development officer for B&W’s government operations. Camplin and Spencer will both report to Baker, the release said.
“Consolidating these operations under a single leader helps us to better leverage the synergies that exist between our government nuclear business and our management and operations initiatives,” said E. James Ferland, president and chief executive officer of B&W. “The restructuring also provides for greater efficiencies that will result in cost savings to B&W and our customer.
“I am confident in Sandy’s ability to lead this broader organization. With more than 40 years of service with B&W, Sandy has a proven track record of success and has built an enormous amount of credibility both within the company and with our customer and other external stakeholders.”
Spencer left Y-12 at the end of January. He came to the plant about 18 months earlier, in August 2012, shortly after the the security breach.
