The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Virginia Electric and Power Company (the licensee) to withdraw its February 14, 2006, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR-32 and DPR-37 for the Surry Power Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2 (Surry 1 and 2), located in Surry County, Virginia.
The proposed amendments would have revised the Technical Specifications (TSs) pertaining to restricting the minimum cooling time and burnup of spent fuel assemblies that will be placed into storage in the NUHOMS HD spent fuel dry storage system at Surry 1 and 2 starting in the summer of 2006. Specifically, the proposed amendments would add Figure 5.4-2 to the TSs to ensure that the NUHOMS HD canister remains subcritical during operations in the Surry 1 and 2 spent fuel pool.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendments published in the Federal Register on May 16, 2006 (71 FR 28390). However, by letter dated March 12, 2007, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendments dated February 14, 2006, and the licensee's letter dated March 12, 2007, which withdrew the application for license amendments.
