Renewed Operating License No. NPF-12; Combined License Nos. NPF-93 and NPF-94; and the General License for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI); In the Matter of Dominion Energy, Inc., and SCANA Corporation Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station (VCSNS), Units 1, 2, and 3, and the ISFSI
The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued Orders approving an application filed by South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) and Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) on January 25, 2018, that supersedes and corrects an error in the Orders issued on August 30, 2018. The August 30, 2018, Orders stated that VCSNS Units 1, 2 and 3 are co-owned by SCE&G and Santee Cooper, who have undivided ownership interests of two-thirds and one-third, respectively, in VCSNS. This statement was correct for VCSNS Unit 1 and the ISFSI, however, for the VCSNS Units 2 and 3 COLs, SCE&G and Santee Cooper have ownerships interests of 55 percent and 45 percent, respectively. The application sought NRC approval of the indirect transfer of Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-12 and Combined License Nos. NPF-93 and NPF-94 for Summer, Units 1, 2, and 3 and the general license for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI), from the ultimate parent, SCANA Corporation, to Dominion Energy. The NRC's approval of the indirect license transfer is subject to certain conditions, which are described in the Orders. No physical changes to the facility or operational changes were proposed in the application. The Orders were effective upon issuance.
