The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its February 14, 2001, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-64 for the Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit No. 3 (IP3), located in Westchester County, New York.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications to extend the allowed outage time for the emergency diesel generators and the associated fuel oil storage tanks from 72 hours to 14 days on a one-time basis.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on March 21, 2001 (66 FR 15922). However, by letter dated December 5, 2001, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
Further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated February 14, 2001, as supplemented on July 25, 2001, and the licensee's letter dated December 5, 2001, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
