The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its March 11, 2003, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-66 and NFP-73 for the Beaver Valley Power Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (BVPS-1 and 2), located in Beaver County, Pennsylvania.
The proposed amendment would have revised the BVPS-1 and 2 Technical Specifications (TSs) to include listing of the Westinghouse best-estimate large-break loss-of-cooling accident (LOCA) methodology in TS 6.9.5, “Core Operating Limits Report (COLR),” thereby approving its use in the LOCA accident analysis.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 27, 2003 (68 FR 28853). However, by letter dated September 5, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated March 11, 2003, and the licensee's letter dated September 5, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
