The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company, et al. (the licensee), to partially withdraw its application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-66 and NPF-73 for the Beaver Valley Power Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (BVPS-1 and 2), located in Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
The request to review related Updated Final Safety Analysis Report (UFSAR) pages submitted with the licensee's February 14, 2003, submittal was withdrawn in its March 31, 2003, submittal. The licensee's request to modify TS 220.127.116.11, “Containment Recirculation Spray System,” by reducing the required recirculation spray heat exchanger minimum river/service water flow rate in surveillance requirement (SR) 18.104.22.168.e.3, was withdrawn by its March 19, 2003, letter. The changes were no longer necessary as Amendment Nos. 252 and 132 for BVPS-1 and BVPS-2, respectively, relocated SR 22.214.171.124.e.3 to each unit's UFSAR. The licensee's requested changes related to conversion of the BVPS-1 and 2 containments from subatmospheric to atmospheric operating conditions was withdrawn by its September 5, 2003, submittal.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2002 (67 FR 75876). However, by letters dated March 19 and 31, and September 5, 2003, the licensee withdrew the portions of the proposed changes as stated above.

The licensee's letters dated March 19 and 31, and September 5, 2003, withdrew a portion of the application for license amendment.
