Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Wolf Creek Nuclear Operating Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its September 22, 2010 application, as supplemented by letter dated November 22, 2010, for proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-42 for the Wolf Creek Generating Station (WCGS), located in Coffey County, Kansas.

The proposed amendment would have revised the approved fire protection program as described in the WCGS Updated Safety Analysis Report (USAR). Specifically, the licensee requested approval for a deviation from a commitment to certain technical requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), part 50, Appendix R, Section III.L.1, “Alternative and dedicated shutdown capability,” as described in Appendix 9.5E of the WCGS USAR. The change would have revised USAR Table 9.5E-1 to include information on reactor coolant system process variables not maintained within those predicted for a loss of normal AC (alternating current) power.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 28, 2010 (75 FR 81673). However, by letter dated June 30, 2011, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated September 22, 2010, as supplemented by letter dated November 22, 2010, and the licensee's letter dated June 30, 2011, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
