Introduction The NRC is considering issuance of an amendment to Facility Operating License Nos. DPR–24 and DPR–27 issued to NextEra Energy Point Beach, LLC (the licensee) for operation of the Point Beach Nuclear Plant (PBNP), Units 1 and 2, located in Manitowac County, Wisconsin. The proposed amendment would increase the licensed core power level for PBNP Units 1 and 2 from 1540 megawatts thermal (MWt) to 1800 MWt. The increase in core thermal power will be approximately 17 percent over the current licensed thermal power level and is categorized as an Extended Power Uprate (EPU). The proposed amendment would change the Renewed Facility Operating Licenses, the Technical Specifications (TSs) and licensing bases to support operation at the increased core thermal power level, including PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 70305 changes to the maximum licensed reactor core thermal power, reactor core safety limits, constant axial offset control operating strategy, reactor protection system and engineered safety feature actuation system, limited safety system setting values, and diesel generator (DG) start loss of voltage time delays. Additional TS changes include reactor coolant system flow rate, pressurizer operating level, pressurizer safety valve settings, accumulator and refueling water storage tank boron concentrations, main steam safety valve maximum allowable power level and lift settings, new main feedwater isolation valves, modifications to the auxiliary feedwater system, condensate storage tank level, and Core Operating Limits Report references. A high energy line break (HELB) outside containment program has been reconstituted to ensure documentation demonstrates compliance with the plant’s license basis. The review of the EPU license amendment request will include the HELB reconstitution to verify compliance with the licensing basis and acceptability for EPU conditions. The HELB evaluations have been re-evaluated at EPU conditions using the following: (1) Implementation of NRC Generic Letter 87–11, ‘‘Relaxation in Arbitrary Intermediate Pipe Rupture Requirements,’’ dated June 19, 1987, and Branch Technical Position MEB 3–1, ‘‘Postulated Rupture Locations in Fluid System Piping Inside and Outside Containment,’’ Revision 2, dated June 1987, (2) mass and energy released from a HELB, (3) compartment pressurization transient evaluation following a HELB event, (4) jet impingement from streams following a HELB event, and (5) operator response time evaluation. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing Requirements for hearing requests and petitions for leave to intervene are found in 10 CFR 2.309, ‘‘Hearing requests, petitions to intervene, requirements for standing, and contentions.’’ Interested persons should consult 10 CFR part 2, Section 2.309, which is available at the NRC’s PDR located at O1–F21, One White Flint North, 11555 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852 (or call the PDR at 800–397– 4209 or 301–415–4737). NRC regulations are also accessible electronically from the NRC’s Electronic Reading Room on the NRC Web site at http://www.nrc.gov. III. Petitions for Leave To Intervene Any person whose interest may be affected by this proceeding and who wishes to participate as a party in the E:\FR\FM\17NON1.SGM 17NON1
