The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Inc. (the licensee) to withdraw its October 1, 2008, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-53 and DPR-69 for the Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, located in Calvert County, Maryland.
The proposed amendments would introduce new license conditions requiring the reporting of reactor vessel (RV) inservice inspection (ISI) information and analyses as specified in Federal Register Notice (72 FR 56275) dated October 3, 2007, “Alternate Fracture Toughness Requirements for Protection Against Pressurized Thermal Shock Events.” These amendments were a required part of a code relief request, submitted by the licensee on October 1, 2008, to extend the RV ISI 10-year inspection interval for RV weld examinations.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 16, 2008 (73 FR 76409). However, by letter dated July 8, 2009, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated October 1, 2008, and the licensee's letter dated July 8, 2009, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
