The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has granted the request of FPL Energy Seabrook, LLC (FPLE or the licensee) to withdraw its March 28, 2005, application for an amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-86 for the Seabrook Station, Unit No. 1 (Seabrook), located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Seabrook Technical Specification (TS) 3/4.9.13, “Spent Fuel Assembly Storage,” to reflect a revised criticality safety analysis. This analysis was intended to support a two-zone spent fuel pool (SFP) consisting of BORAFLEX® and BORAL® fuel assembly storage racks. Additionally, the proposed change would have created TS 3/4.9.15, “Spent Fuel Pool Boron Concentration,” to support the planned SFP changes.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2005 (70 FR 24653). However, by letter dated October 24, 2005, FPLE withdrew the proposed change. Start Printed Page 70889
