Abstract

This document is a safety evaluation report regarding the application to renew the operating license for Arkansas Nuclear One, Unit 1 (ANO-1), which was filed by Entergy Operations, Inc., by letter dated January 31, 2000. The Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has reviewed the ANO-1 license renewal application for compliance with the requirements of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 54, "Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants," and prepared this report to document its findings.

In its submittal of January 31, 2000, the Entergy Operations, Inc., requested renewal of the ANO-1 operating license (License No. DPR-51), which was issued under Section 104 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, for a period of 20 years beyond the current license expiration date of May 20, 2014. ANO-1 is located in Pope County in the central region of Arkansas on the shore of Lake Dardanelle. ANO-1 is a Babcock and Wilcox pressurized-water reactor nuclear steam supply system that is designed to generate 2568 MW thermal, or approximately 836 MW electric.
