The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request of the Carolina Power & Light Company (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated September 29, 2008, as supplemented by letters dated January 16, 2009, August 12, 2009, January 18, 2010, and August 16, 2010, for a proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-63 for the Shearon Harris Nuclear Power Plant, Unit 1, located in Wake County, North Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have modified Technical Specification (TS) Sections 184.108.40.206.a and 220.127.116.11.b to incorporate the results of a new criticality analysis. Specifically the TSs would be revised to add new requirements for the Boiling-Water Reactor (BWR) spent fuel storage racks containing Boraflex in Spent Fuel Pools A and B. The requirements for the BWR spent fuel racks currently contained in TS 18.104.22.168 would be revised to specify applicability to the spent fuel storage racks containing Boral in Spent Fuel Pool B.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on February 24, 2009 (74 FR 8283). However, by letter dated September 28, 2010, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated September 29, 2008 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML082800410), as supplemented by letters dated January 16, 2009, (ADAMS Accession No. ML090230373), August 12, 2009 (ADAMS Accession No. ML092310549), January 18, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML100250850), and August 16, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML102370768), and the licensee's letter dated September 28, 2010, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
