Abstract

This safety evaluation report documents the Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC's) review of Virginia Electric and Power Company's (Dominion's) applications to renew the operating licenses for North Anna Power Station, Units 1 and 2, and Surry Power Station, Units 1 and 2. The NRC's Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation reviewed the North Anna and Surry power stations license renewal applications 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 the findings of the review.

On May 29, 2001, Dominion submitted applications for renewal of Operating License Nos. NPF-4 and NPF-7, issued pursuant to Section 103 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, for a period of 20 years beyond the current operating terms. The current operating licenses for North Anna power station, Units 1 and 2, expire on April 1, 2018, and August 21, 2020, respectively. North Anna power station is in Louisa County in northern Virginia on the shore of Lake Anna. North Anna power station units 1 and 2 are three-loop Westinghouse pressurizedwater reactors nuclear steam supply systems designed to generate 2893 MW thermal, or approximately 942 MW electric.

In its submittal of May 29, 2001, Dominion also submitted an application for renewal of Operating License Nos. DPR-32 and DPR-37, issued pursuant to Section 104b of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, for a period of 20 years beyond the current operating terms. The current operating licenses for Surry power station, Units 1 and 2, expire on May 25, 2012, and January 29, 2013, respectively. Surry power station is in Surry County in southern Virginia on the bank of the James River. Surry power station units 1 and 2 are three-loop Westinghouse pressurized-water reactors nuclear steam supply systems designed to generate 2546 MW thermal, or approximately 829 MW electric.
