The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its March 19, 2002, application as supplemented by their letters dated November 26, 2002, and March 13, 2003, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-37 and NPF-66 for the Byron Station, Units 1 and 2, located in Ogle County, Illinois, and Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-72 and NPF-77 for the Braidwood Station, Units 1 and 2, located in Will County, Illinois.
The proposed amendment would have revised the method of controlling the fuel cycle unfavorable exposure time (UET) related to an anticipated transient without scram (ATWS) event. Specifically, the proposed change would have deleted TS 5.6.5.b.5 and appropriately would have revised the discussion of an ATWS event in the Updated Final Safety Analysis Report, Section 15.8, “Anticipated Transient Without Scram.”
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2002, (67 FR 42825). However, by letter dated March 13, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated March 19, 2002, as supplemented by their letter November 26, 2002, and the licensee's letter dated March 13, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
