Firstenergy Nuclear Operating Company; Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station, Unit 1; Notice of Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License


The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its May 3, 2004, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-3; for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station (DBNPS), Unit 1, located in Ottawa County, Ohio.

The proposed amendment would have changed the facility as described in the DBNPS Updated Safety Analysis Report to modify the design requirements for the emergency diesel generators (EDGs). Specifically, the proposed amendment would have allowed a departure from the regulatory position of Safety Guide 9, “Selection of Diesel Generator Set Capacity for Standby Power Supplies,” for the frequency and voltage transient during the EDG automatic loading sequence.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 25, 2004 (69 FR 29767). However, by letter dated August 29, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated May 3, 2004 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML041260319), as supplemented by letter dated April 28, 2005 (ADAMS Accession No. ML051220367), and the licensee's letter dated August 29, 2005 (ADAMS Accession No. ML052440346), which withdrew the application for license amendment.
