Combined License Application Documents for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 and 3 Application

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) considers public involvement in, and information about, our activities to be a cornerstone of strong, fair regulation of the nuclear industry. As such, the NRC believes that nuclear regulation should be transacted as openly and candidly as possible to maintain and enhance the public's confidence. Ensuring appropriate openness explicitly recognizes that the public must be informed about, and have a reasonable opportunity to participate meaningfully in, the NRC's regulatory processes. Toward that end, this page provides access to documents and correspondence related to the application that South Carolina Electric & Gas (SCE&G) submitted to obtain a combined license (COL) for two Westinghouse Advanced Passive 1000 (AP1000) pressurized-water reactors (PWRs) designated as Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 & 3:

Reference Documents

In accordance with Title 10, Part 52, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 52), "Licenses, Certifications, and Approvals for Nuclear Power Plants," a COL application may reference a standard design certification, an early site permit, both, or neither. Many COL applications have referenced an application for design certification, in accordance with 10 CFR 52.55(c). On that basis, SCE&G referenced Westinghouse's application to amend the AP1000 standard design certification and cited the following amended design control document (DCD) in its COL original application for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 & 3:

In Revision 1 to the Summer Nuclear Station Unit 2 and 3 COL application dated July 30, 2009, SCE&G updated the application to reflect that its application now incorporates by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 17.

In Revision 4 to the Summer Nuclear Station Unit 2 and 3 COL application dated February 7, 2011, SCE&G updated the application to reflect that its application now incorporates by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 18.

In Revision 5 to the Summer Nuclear Station Unit 2 and 3 COL application dated June 28, 2011, SCE&G updated the application to reflect that its application now incorporates by reference AP1000 DCD Revision 19.

Application

The following table provides access to the COL Application that SCE&G submitted for Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Units 2 & 3.

Some combined license applications were submitted with hyperlinks to various reference documents. Currently, the hyperlinks in those applications are not active. These hyperlinks represent an advanced feature that could be activated when the agency upgrades to web-based ADAMS, at which point these applications and documents such as the Final Safety Analysis Report and associated Technical/Topical Reports would be linked together. In the interim, and for those applications that do not have the hyperlink feature, the reference documents may be viewed under the Reference Documents section of the combined license application page. In addition, DVDs of the various documents are available by contacting the Public Document Room staff.
