The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of AmerGen Energy Company, LLC (the licensee), to withdraw part of its May 21, 2001, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-62 for the Clinton Power Station, Unit No. 1, located in DeWitt County, Illinois.
The amendment application proposed revising the Technical Specifications to allow alternate actions if the refueling equipment interlocks become inoperable and to increase the frequency of the refueling equipment interlock inputs channel functional test from 7 to 31 days. In partial response to the licensee's request, the NRC staff issued an amendment dated April 4, 2002, approving the alternate actions if the refueling equipment interlocks become inoperable. The request to revise the Start Printed Page 51894frequency of the refueling equipment interlock inputs channel functional test was not addressed in that license amendment.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2001 (66 FR 66463). However, by letter dated July 16, 2002, the licensee withdrew the portion of the proposed change pertaining to the channel functional test frequency.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated May 21, 2001, the license amendment dated April 4, 2002, and the licensee's letter dated July 16, 2002, which withdrew part of the application for license amendment.
