Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has granted the request of PSEG Nuclear LLC (PSEG), on behalf or PSEG and Exelon Generation Company, LLC (the licensees) to withdraw a portion of its April 15, 2004, application and the August 11, 2004, and August 11, 2005, supplements for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-70 and DPR-75 for the Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, located in Salem County, New Jersey.

One of the proposed changes would have permitted a modification to the Salem, Unit No. 1, containment cooling system. Specifically, PSEG proposed to install a new closed-loop chilled water system to supply cooling water to the containment fan cooling units during normal operation. The emergency containment cooling water system would remain the safety-related source of cooling water for postulated accidents. The request involved changes to the system configuration, revisions to the analysis of containment temperature and pressure following a design-basis event, and associated changes to the Technical Specifications. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on October 12, 2004 (69 FR 60684). However, by letter dated August 11, 2005, PSEG withdrew the above-referenced proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated April 15, 2004, as supplemented by letters dated August 11, 2004, and August 11, 2005.
