The proposed license amendment (ADAMS Accession No. ML13260A256) requests the changes to the Technical Specification (TS) 3.8.1, “AC Sources—Operating.” TS 3.8.1 contains Surveillance Requirement (SR), which requires verification of the capability to manually transfer Unit 1 4.16 kV ESF bus AC power sources from the normal offsite circuit to the alternate required offsite circuit and this surveillance is only applicable to Unit 1. Dominion is developing a plant modification to install an alternate offsite power feed to each of the two 4.16 kV ESF buses for Unit 2, such that it will be similar to the Unit 1 design. Therefore, the proposed change would delete Note 1 to SR to remove the limitation that excludes Unit 2 and will be consistent with the verification currently performed for Unit 1.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register dated October 29, 2013 (78 FR 64547). However, by letter dated April 16, 2014, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated September 10, 2013 (ADAMS Accession No. ML13260A256) and the licensee's letter dated April 16, 2014, which withdrew the application for license amendment (ADAMS Accession No. ML14112A076).
