Download as PDF 11372 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 34 / Wednesday, February 22, 2017 / Notices containing core debris and damaged spent nuclear fuel from the TMI–2 reactor. The proposed amendment would revise the licensee delegation of authority in the license, the technical specifications, and the final safety analysis report. These documents currently delegate authority under the license to the Manager, DOE Idaho Operations Office. This amendment would replace that reference with the Deputy Manager, Idaho Cleanup Project in each of the documents. In a letter to DOE dated December 9, 2016, the NRC notified DOE that the application was acceptable to begin a technical review (ADAMS Accession No. ML16347A192). The NRC’s Office of Nuclear Materials Safety and Safeguards has docketed this application under Docket No. 72–20. If the NRC approves the amendment, the approval will be documented in an amendment to NRC Materials License No. SNM–2508. The Commission will approve the license amendment if it determines that the request complies with the standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, and the NRC’s rules and regulations, and make findings consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act and part 51 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR). These findings will be documented in a safety evaluation report. II. Opportunity To Request a Hearing The Commission may issue either a notice of hearing or a notice of proposed action and opportunity for hearing in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(1) or, if a determination is made that the amendment does not present a genuine issue as to whether public health and safety will be significantly affected, take immediate action on the amendment in accordance with 10 CFR 72.46(b)(2), and provide notice of the action taken and an opportunity for interested persons to request a hearing on whether the action should be rescinded or modified. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Dated at Rockville, Maryland, this 14th day of February, 2017.

The design is based on the Multi-Application Small Light Water Reactor (MASLWR) developed at Oregon State University in the early 2000s. The NuScale SMR is a natural circulation light-water reactor with the reactor core and helical coil steam generator located in a common reactor vessel in a cylindrical steel containment. The NuScale power module is immersed in water in a safety related pool. The reactor pool is located below grade and is designed to hold up to twelve (12) power modules. Each NuScale SMR has a rated thermal output of 160 megawatts thermal (MWt) and electrical output of 50 megawatts electric (MWe). Each plant can hold up to 12 modules yielding a total capacity of 600 MWe.
