The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request by Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (the licensee), to withdraw its April 26, 2010, application for proposed amendments to Renewed Facility Operating Licenses NPF-35 and NPF-52 for the Catawba Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2, located in York County, South Carolina; Renewed Facility Operating Licenses NPF-9 and NPF-17, for the McGuire Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2, located in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina; and Renewed Facility Operating Licenses DPR-38, DPR-47, and DPR-55 for the Oconee Nuclear Station, Units 1, 2, and 3 located in Oconee County, South Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specifications (TSs) and Licenses by making organizational changes.
The Commission has previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on September 7, 2010 (75 FR 54392). However, the licensee has chosen not to pursue the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated April 26, 2010 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML101250042), and the NRC staff's letters dated April 18, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML11094A029), and April 26, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML11109A079). 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. Publicly available records will be accessible electronically from the ADAMS Public Electronic Reading Room on the Internet at the NRC Web site, http://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/adams.html.
