The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Nuclear Management Company, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its January 16, 2004, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-43 for the Kewaunee Nuclear Power Plant, located in Kewaunee County, Wisconsin.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications (1) to allow the containment equipment hatch to be open during refueling operations and/or Start Printed Page 35397during movement of irradiated fuel assemblies within containment, (2) to require verification of the ability to close the equipment hatch periodically during refueling operations, and (3) to include requirements for operability of the control room post accident recirculation system during fuel handling operations in which the fuel that is being moved has been irradiated within less than 30 days.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 17, 2004 (69 FR 7525). However, by letter dated June 8, 2004, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated January 16, 2004, and the licensee's letter dated June 8, 2004, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
