Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 18th day of November 2014. For the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Merritt Baker, Acting Branch Chief, Fuel Manufacturing Branch, Division of Fuel Cycle Safety, Safeguards, and Environmental Review, Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards. In the Matter of: SHAW AREVA MOX SERVICES, LLC (Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility), Docket No. 70–3098, Construction Authorization No. CAMOX–001 EA–14–181 Order Approving Extension of Construction Authorization and Administrative Changes PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 I. CB&I AREVA MOX Services (MOX Services, Licensee) (formerly known as Shaw AREVA MOX Services, LLC) holds Construction Authorization (CA) CAMOX–001 which authorizes the construction of a Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF) at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Savannah River Site in Aiken, South Carolina. The MFFF is currently partially completed. On May 12, 2014 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System [ADAMS] Accession No. ML14132A342), MOX Services filed a request for an extension of the CA completion date for the MFFF to March 30, 2025. MOX Services stated in its application that the extension is necessary to provide adequate time to complete construction of the MFFF. The construction authorization for the MFFF was originally issued on March 30, 2005, for a term of 10 years. MOX Services also stated in their May 12, 2014, request that various factors have contributed to the need for an extension of the CA. The factors include: (a) The MFFF is unique and is the first facility of this type to be licensed in the United States under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 70; (b) annual funding/appropriations supporting construction activities have been less that the projected funding profile for several years; (c) requirements of nuclear procurements coupled with a shortage of qualified vendors have resulted in delayed delivery of components; (d) a shortage of qualified construction workers has resulted in longer durations for key construction activities, and (e) a 2-year delay between issuance of the CA and the start of nuclear construction. In May 2014, MOX Services determined that, in order to bound the potential completion date of the facility with respect to the dependence of annual congressional funding, the CA’s term should be extended to March 30, 2025. In addition, the staff has made two administrative changes to the CA. The first change is a name change based on a letter from MOX Services dated August 15, 2014 (ML14227A556). The second change is a housekeeping amendment consisting of the removal of the list of submittals incorporated by reference in Attachment A of the CA, which have since been incorporated into the CA, environmental report, and the license application to possess and use radioactive material.
