SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 29345 I. Background Exelon Generation Company, LLC is the holder of Renewed Facility Operating License No. DPR–18, which authorizes operation of Ginna, a pressurized-water reactor. The license provides, among other things, that the facility is subject to all rules, regulations, and orders of the NRC now or hereafter in effect. The facility is located in Ontario, New York, approximately 20 miles northeast of Rochester, New York. II. Request/Action Pursuant to § 50.12 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), ‘‘Specific exemptions,’’ the licensee requested, by letter dated August 22, 2016 (ADAMS Accession No. ML16236A300), an exemption from § 50.46, ‘‘Acceptance criteria for emergency core cooling systems [ECCS] for light-water nuclear power reactors,’’ and 10 CFR part 50, appendix K, ‘‘ECCS Evaluation Models,’’ to allow the use of Optimized ZIRLOTM fuel rod cladding. The regulations in § 50.46 contain acceptance criteria for the ECCS for reactors fueled with zircaloy or ZIRLOTM fuel rod cladding material. In addition, 10 CFR part 50, appendix K, requires that the Baker-Just equation be used to predict the rates of energy release, hydrogen concentration, and cladding oxidation from the metal/water reaction. The Baker-Just equation assumes the use of a zirconium alloy different than Optimized ZIRLOTM material. Therefore, an exemption to § 50.46 and 10 CFR part 50, appendix K is required to support the use of Optimized ZIRLOTM fuel rod cladding at Ginna. The exemption request relates solely to the specific types of cladding material specified in these regulations (i.e., fuel rods with Zircaloy or ZIRLO® cladding). This request will provide for the application of the acceptance criteria of § 50.46 and appendix K to 10 CFR part 50 to fuel assembly designs utilizing Optimized ZIRLOTM fuel rod cladding. The NRC staff prepared a separate safety evaluation fully addressing Exelon’s application for a related license amendment. III. Discussion Pursuant to § 50.12, the Commission may, upon application by any interested person or upon its own initiative, grant exemptions from the requirements of 10 CFR part 50 when: (1) The exemptions are authorized by law, will not present an undue risk to public health or safety, and are consistent with the common E:\FR\FM\28JNN1.SGM 28JNN1
