The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request of Carolina Power & Light Company (the licensee) to withdraw its August 13, 2007, application, as supplemented by letter dated June 19, 2008, for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. 325 and 50-324 for Brunswick Steam Electric Plant, Units 1 and 2 (BSEP), located in Brunswick County, North Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have revised BSEP's Technical Specification (TS) Table 188.8.131.52-1, “Source Range Monitor [SRM] Instrumentation,” to add a footnote that specifies the required locations of operable SRMs in Mode 5 during core alternations, and to make an administrative correction to Surveillance Requirement 184.108.40.206.2 in the Unit 1 TSs.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2008 (73 FR 1025). Subsequently, the licensee determined to no longer pursue NRC approval of the proposed license amendments and by letter dated September 22, 2008, the licensee withdrew the request.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendments dated August 13, 2007, as supplemented by letter dated June 19, 2008, and the licensee's letter dated September 22, 2008, which withdrew the application for license amendments.
