Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its October 12, 2001, application for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-3 for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Station, Unit 1, located in Ottawa County, Ohio.

The proposed amendment would have made necessary revisions to the DBNPS technical specifications to reflect an increase in the authorized rated thermal power from 2772 MWt to 2817 MWt (approximately 1.63 percent), based on the use of Caldon Inc. Leading Edge Flow Meter (LEFM) CheckPlusTM System instrumentation to improve the accuracy of the feedwater mass flow input to the plant power calorimetric measurement.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register December 26, 2001 (66 FR 66467). However, by letter dated December 20, 2004, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated October 12, 2001, and the licensee's letter dated December 20, 2004, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
