The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has granted the request of Luminant Generation Company LLC (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated October 2, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12285A091), for a proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-87 and NPF-89 for the Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant, Unit Nos. 1 and 2, respectively, located in Somervell County, Texas.

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,” to relocate the TS requirements for the following instruments to the Technical Requirements Manual, a licensee-controlled document:

  • Pressurizer Water Level—High (RTS Function No. 9),
  • Trip of all Main Feedwater Pumps (ESFAS Function No. 6.g),
  • ESFAS Interlock Reactor Trip, P-4 (ESFAS Function No. 8.a).

The proposed changes would have relocated the TS requirements in their entirety and would not have resulted in deletion or alteration of any RTS or ESFAS requirements. The proposed relocation of the TS requirements for these RTS and ESFAS instrument Functions was based on the application of TS criteria of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, (10 CFR) paragraph 50.36(c)(2)(ii).

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2013 (78 FR 4472). However, by letter dated July 25, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13218A100), the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for Start Printed Page 49306amendment dated October 2, 2012, and the licensee's letter dated July 25, 2013, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
