By letter dated May 26, 2004, Constellation Energy Group, LLC submitted the LRA for NMPNS in accordance with Title 10, Part 54, of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR Part 54). Due to concerns with the adequacy of support for and documentation of the license renewal activities in the initial submission, the applicant submitted an amended LRA (ALRA) on July 14, 2005. Constellation Energy Group, LLC is.requesting renewal of the operating licenses for NMPNS (Facility Operating License Numbers DPR-63 and NPF-69, respectively), for a period of 20 years beyond the current expiration dates of midnight August 22, 2009, for Unit 1 (NMPI) and midnight October 31, 2026, for Unit 2 (NMP2).

The NRC issued the operating licenses for NMP1 on December 26, 1974 and for NMP2 on July 2, 1987. NMP1 is a boiling water reactor design with a Mark 1 containment. The nuclear steam supply system was supplied by General Electric and the balance of the plant was originally designed and constructed by Stone and Webster with the assistance of its agent, Niagra Mohawk Power Corporation. NMPI's licensed power output is 1850 megawatt thermal, with a gross electrical output of approximately 615 megawatt electric. NMP2 is a boiling water reactor design with a Mark 2 containment. The nuclear steam supply system was supplied by General Electric and the balance of the plant was originally designed and constructed by Stone and Webster.
