The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of PPL Susquehanna, LLC, (the licensee) to withdraw its March 24, 2009, as supplemented by letters dated April 30 and May 12, 2009, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-14 and NPF-22 for the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station (SSES), Units 1 and 2, located in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
The proposed amendments would have changed the SSES Units 1 and 2 Technical Specifications (TSs) 3.8.1 for AC Sources—Operating, to extend the allowable Completion Time for the Required Actions associated with one offsite circuit inoperable due to the replacement of Startup Transformer Number 20 (ST No. 20). The proposed change to SSES Units 1 and 2 TS would have allowed for a one-time only extension of limiting condition for operation 3.8.1 Action A.3 to 10 days during replacement of ST No. 20, while both units remain at power.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on June 2, 2009 (74 FR 26434). However, by letter dated August 20, 2009, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated March 24, 2009, as supplemented by letters dated April 30 and May 12, 2009, and the licensee's letter dated August 20, 2009, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
