The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has issued Amendment No. 89 to Facility Operating License (FOL) No. NPF-87 and Amendment No. 89 to FOL No. NPF-89 issued to TXU Electric (the licensee), which revised FOL Nos. NPF-87 and NPF-89 and the Technical Specifications for operation of the Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station (CPSES), Units 1 and 2, located in Somervell and Hood Counties, Texas. The amendments are effective as of the date of issuance.
The amendments modified FOL Nos. NPF-87 and NPF-89 and the Technical Specifications to increase the maximum licensed thermal power of CPSES, Units 1 and 2, to 3458 MWt, which represents an increase of approximately 1.4 percent of the currently licensed thermal power for CPSES, Unit 1, and an increase of approximately 0.4 percent for CPSES, Unit 2. In addition, the amendments remove Texas Municipal Power Agency (TMPA) from both Unit 1 and Unit 2 FOLs since transfer of partial ownership from TMPA to TXU was completed.
The application for the amendment, as supplemented, complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), and the Commission's rules and regulations. The Commission has made appropriate findings as required by the Act and the Commission's rules and regulations in 10 CFR Chapter I, which are set forth in the license amendment.
