FirstEnergy Corp. subsidiary FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Co. on Sept. 28 said it has made several management changes at its Davis-Besse nuclear power plant in Oak Harbor, Ohio, and Beaver Valley nuclear power plant in Shippingport, Pa.

Raymond A. Lieb, currently director of site operations at Beaver Valley, has been promoted to site vice president of Davis-Besse power plant, effective Oct. 8.

Lieb replaces Barry Allen, who has accepted a position at Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s Diablo Canyon power plant in San Luis Obispo County, Calif.

Richard D. Bologna, currently director of engineering at Beaver Valley, has been named director of site operations to succeed Lieb.
