The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of PSEG Nuclear LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated August 4, 2006, as supplemented by letter dated March 8, 2007, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. 50-272 and 50-311 for the Salem Nuclear Generating Station, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, located in Salem County, New Jersey.
The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification 3/4.9.3, “Decay Time,” to allow the movement of irradiated fuel in the reactor pressure vessel to commence at 24 hours after shutdown or at the decay time calculated using the licensee's spent fuel pool integrated decay heat management program, whichever is later. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 19, 2006 (71 FR 75999). However, by letter dated August 13, 2007, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated August 4, 2006, as supplemented by letter dated March 8, 2007, and the licensee's letter dated August 13, 2007, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
