The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Carolina Power & Light Company (the licensee) to withdraw its November 12, 2002, application, as supplemented on March 5, 2004, for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License No. DPR-71 and Facility Operating License No. DPR-62 for Brunswick Steam Electric Plant, Units 1 and 2, respectively, located in Brunswick County, North Carolina.

As part of the MELLLA+ implementation, Carolina Power & Light Company would implement the Detect and Suppress Solution-Confirmation Density (DSS-CD) approach to automatically detect and suppress neutronic/thermal-hydraulic instabilities.
