Abstract

This document is a safety evaluation report regarding the application to renew the operating licenses for Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Units 2 and 3. The application was filed by the Exelon Generation Company LLC, (Exelon) by letter dated July 2, 2001. The Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has reviewed the Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station, Units 2 and 3, 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 July 2, 2001, Exelon requested renewal of the Peach Bottom, Units 2 and 3, operating licenses (License Nos.

The Peach Bottom Atomic Power Station is a two-unit nuclear power plant located in York County and Lancaster County in southeastern Pennsylvania. Each unit consists of a General Electric boiling-water reactor nuclear steam supply system designed to generate 3514 megawatts thermal or approximately 1116 megawatts electric.
