The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request of Entergy Operations, Inc. (the licensee), to withdraw its application dated August 24, 2010, and supplemented by letters dated November 12, 2010, and February 28, 2011, for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License No. DPR-51 for the Arkansas Nuclear One, Unit 1, located in Pope County, Arkansas.
The proposed amendment would have revised several Technical Specifications (TSs) to permit a greater time period for one of the two required reactor coolant system cooling loops (commonly known as a Decay Heat Removal loop) to be inoperable. The affected TSs are applicable in lower Modes of Operation, Modes 4, 5, and 6.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on November 2, 2010 (75 FR 67401). However, by letter dated March 24, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated August 24, 2010, the supplemental letters dated November 12, 2010, and February 28, 2011, and the licensee's letter dated March 24, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession Nos. ML102371014, ML103160175, ML110590738, and ML110840216, respectively). Documents may be examined, and/or copied for a fee, at the NRC's Public Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area O1 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.
