The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission, NRC) has granted the request of Duke Energy Carolinas, LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its June 29, 2010, application for proposed amendments to Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-9 and NPF-17 for the McGuire Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2, located in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and for proposed amendments to Renewed Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-35 and NPF-52 for the Catawba Nuclear Station, Units 1 and 2, located in York County, South Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification (TS) 3.3.1, “Reactor Trip System (RTS) Instrumentation” and TS 3.3.2, “Engineered Safety Feature Actuation System (ESFAS) Instrumentation.”
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on January 25, 2011 (76 FR 4384). However, by letter dated April 12, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated June 29, 2010, and the licensee's letter dated April 12, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
