The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its February 27, 2001, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-64 for the Indian Point Nuclear Generating Unit No. 2 (IP2), located in Westchester County, New York.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications (TSs) to change the mode applicability for certain engineered safety features and auxiliary electrical systems from the point of time when the reactor is made critical to when the average reactor coolant temperature is heated above 350 °F. The amendment would also have changed the associated action that must be taken when the TS conditions cannot be met to require a plant cooldown to below 350 °F.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on April 4, 2001 (66 FR 17965). However, by letter dated February 27, 2002, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
Further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated February 27, 2001, and the licensee's letter dated February 27, 2002, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
