    ZionSolutions, LLC (ZS) is the licensee and owner of the Zion 
Nuclear Power Station, Units 1 and 2 (ZNPS) in Zion, Illinois.

II.

    By letter dated January 10, 2013, ZS submitted an application 
requesting that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to 
the indirect transfer of control of Facility Operating License Nos. 
DPR-39 and DPR-48 for the Zion Nuclear Power Station, Units 1 and 2 
held by ZS, including the General License for the Zion Independent 
Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI).
    The transfer will occur as a result of a proposed transaction 
whereby the current ultimate parent holding company of ZS, 
EnergySolutions, Inc. (ES, Inc.), would be directly acquired by 
Rockwell Holdco, Inc. (Rockwell), a Delaware corporation that was 
formed for the purpose of acquiring ES, Inc. and is held by certain 
investment fund entities organized by controlled affiliates of Energy 
Capital Partners II, LLC (ECP II). No physical changes to the ZNPS are 
being proposed.
    Approval of the indirect transfer of the licenses was requested 
pursuant to Section 184 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended 
(AEA) (42 U.S.C. 2234) and Section 50.80 of Title 10 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (10 CFR). A notice of the request for approval and

in the Federal Register on February 20, 2013 (78 FR 11904). No requests 
for a hearing were received in response to this notice. Two comments

    Pursuant to Section 184 of the AEA, no license granted under the

any person unless the Commission, finds that the proposed transferee is 
qualified to be the holder of the license and that the transfer is in 
accordance with the provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued 
by the Commission, and gives its consent in writing.
    Upon review of the information received from ZS, and other 
information before the Commission, and relying upon the representations 
and agreements contained in the Transfer Application, the NRC staff 
finds that: (1) the qualifications of ZS regarding the proposed 
indirect transfer of control of ZNPS are not changed, and (2) the 
proposed indirect transfer of the licenses due to the purchase of the 
current ultimate parent holding company of ZS, EnergySolutions, Inc., 
which would be directly acquired by Rockwell Holdco, Inc. is otherwise 
consistent with applicable provisions of laws, regulations and orders 
issued by the Commission pursuant thereto.
    The findings set forth above are supported by a Safety Evaluation 
(SE) dated May 8, 2013.
    The commenters opined that the transfer would disadvantage 
financial stakeholders. As stated in the supporting SE., the staff

proposal. In addition, the proposed transfer in no way affects the 
current financial reporting requirements or the NRC annual review of 
those reports. Based on the review the staff finds no

approvals of the proposed indirect transfer, ZS shall inform the

business day prior to the closing of the proposed indirect transfer. 
Should the proposed indirect transfer not be completed within 60 days 
from the date of issuance of this Order, the Order shall become null 
and void; however, on written application and for good cause shown, 
such date may be extended by order.
    This Order is effective upon issuance.
