Eric Berglin

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
PO Box 999
Richland, WA 99352

Biography

Mr. Berglin has special expertise in engineering problem solving and in providing stateā€“of-the-art research experiments / instrumentation / mechanical designs operating in unique environments (e.g. hazardous, radiation, ultra-high vacuum) in specialized areas (e.g. remote systems, optics, x-ray systems). His engineering experience is diverse and purposely varied to acquire a range of skills and expertise to be highly adaptable. Much of his work has been related to the nuclear industry and includes reactor systems, radioactive waste processing, liquid and solid waste cleanup and weapons testing. Recent non-nuclear activities include biomass pumping, terrorist detection system testing, fuel cell application, hydrogen safety, small modular reactor assessments, and building energy codes. Previous to working at PNNL, Mr. Berglin worked at AREVA (formerly Cogema), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and Westinghouse Hanford Company (Hanford Site).
