Abstract

This document is a safety evaluation report regarding the application to renew the operating licenses for St. Lucie Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, which the Florida Power and Light Company filed by letter dated November 29, 2001, and the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) received on November 30, 2001. The NRC Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation has reviewed the 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 November 29, 2001, the Florida Power and Light Company requested renewal of the operating licenses for St. Lucie Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2 (License Numbers DPR-67 and NFP-16, respectively), which were issued under Section 104b of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended, for a period of 20 years beyond the current license expiration dates of March 1, 2016, and April 6, 2023, respectively. Units 1 and 2 of the St. Lucie Nuclear Plant are located on Hutchinson Island in St. Lucie County, Florida. Each unit consists of a Combustion Engineering pressurized-water reactor nuclear steam supply system designed to produce a core thermal power output of 2,700 megawatts or approximately 890 megawatts electric.

The NRC license renewal project manager for St. Lucie Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, is Noel Dudley. Mr. Dudley may be contacted by calling 301-415-1154 or by writing to the License Renewal and Environmental Impacts Program, Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation, U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Washington, DC 20555-0001.
