LaSalle County Station, Units 1 and 2; Notice of Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Exelon Generation Company (EGC), LLC, formerly Commonwealth Edison Company (ComEd), to withdraw its November 10, 2000, application for proposed amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-11 and NPF-18 for the LaSalle County Station, Units 1 and 2, located in LaSalle County, Illinois.
The proposed amendment would have revised several sections of the Technical Specifications (TS) and added a new TS section to incorporate Oscillation Power Range Monitor (OPRM) Instrumentation.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 27, 2000 (65 FR 81911). However, by letter dated September 6, 2001, the licensee withdrew the proposed change. The withdrawal request was based on the extended time period General Electric Company is projecting to resolve the OPRM issue (i.e., 12 to 18 months), potential changes needed to the licensee submittals to address the non-conservative OPRM assumptions, and discussions with the Commission staff on August 7, 2001.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated November 10, 2000, and the licensee's letter dated September 6, 2001, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
