Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request of FirstEnergy Nuclear Operating Company and FirstEnergy Nuclear Generation Corp. (the licensee) to withdraw its January 11, 2005, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-3 for the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station, Unit 1, located in Ottawa County.

The proposed amendment would have revised the updated safety analysis report (USAR) by modifying the design requirements for protection from tornado missiles. Specifically, the proposed amendment would have allowed certain structures, systems, and components that are currently provided with physical protection from tornado-induced missiles to be evaluated for acceptability based on the Electric Power Research Institute “Tornado Missile Risk Evaluation Methodology” (TORMIS).

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 15, 2005 (70 FR 7766). However, by letter dated January 26, 2007, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated January 11, 2005, and the licensee's letter dated January 26, 2007, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
