The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Southern Nuclear Operating Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated November 30, 2007, with supplemental letters dated February 13, 2008, for proposed amendment to Facility Operating Licenses No. NPF-68 and No. NPF-81 for the Vogtle Electric Generating Plant, Units No. 1 and 2, located in Burke County, Georgia.
The proposed amendment would have changed TS 5.5.9 to modify the inspection and plugging requirements for portions of Steam Generator (SG) tubes within the hot leg side of the tubesheet region of the SGs. The proposed changes to TS 5.6.10 would have added requirements to report specific data related to indications, leakage detected, and calculated accident leakage.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment, on the above proposed amendment application, that was published in the Federal Register on December 18, 2007 (72 FR 71715). However, by letter dated April 18, 2008, the licensee withdrew the proposed amendment.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated November 30, 2007 (Agencywide Documents Access Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML073380099), with additional information provided by letter dated February 13, 2008, and the licensee's letter dated April 18, 2008, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
