The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of the Tennessee Valley Authority (the licensee), to withdraw its application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. 50-259 issued to the licensee for operation of the Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant, Unit No. 1, located in Limestone County, Alabama.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications to increase the emergency diesel generator allowed outage time.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on January 18, 2005 (70 FR 2898). However, by letter dated August 4, 2006, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated December 6, 2004, as supplemented October 28, 2005, and the licensee's letter dated August 4, 2006, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
