TULLAHOMA, TENN. -- The Project Management Institute (PMI) Southern Middle Tennessee Branch is holding a luncheon meeting at the University of Tennessee Space Institute on Oct. 19 from 11 a.m. -12:30 p.m.

Please join local project management professionals for a time of networking and learning. The guest speaker will be Roger Waldrep, PMP. Waldrep is a general manager for TVA focusing on decommissioning operations. He will be presenting “How TVA implements project management processes,” and how it was used in the development and execution of the project to construct the Paradise Combined Cycle plant in Drakesboro, Kentucky.

Waldrep’s previous position as general manager in the Major Projects organization provided general management and oversight to the many activities associated with all non-nuclear new and replacement generation at TVA. While most of the work performed by the group was for the design, procurement, and construction of simple cycle and combined cycle gas turbine facilities, the group also performed large projects for the modification of existing assets, such as generator replacements and air quality retrofits. Waldrep had the responsibility for supervising the project managers and construction managers who were executing a $157 million Johnsonville Steam CoGen project, a $42 million Raccoon Mountain Cable Replacement Project at Raccoon Mountain Pumped Storage Plant, and was directly managing the $1.12 billion Paradise Combined Cycle Project.
