| CONDITION OF LICENSE REPORT DUE TO UNAVAILABLE EMERGENCY LIGHTING           
|
|                                                                              |
| On October 11, 2001, following a fire protection program self assessment, it |
| was determined that emergency lighting was unavailable in two required       |
| locations.  Actions in these areas are required steps of procedure 20.000.18 |
| "Control of Plant from Dedicated Shutdown Panel."                            |
|                                                                              |
| The inability to perform steps in 20.000.18 constitutes a reportable         |
| condition under Fermi 2 License Condition 2.F as a violation of              |
| "Modifications for Fire Protection" as described in License Condition        |
| 2.C(9).                                                                      |
|                                                                              |
| Short term corrective action is to revise the procedure steps to obtain      |
| portable lighting prior to exiting the plant.  Long term corrective actions  |
| are being evaluated.                                                         |
|                                                                              |
| The NRC Resident Inspector was notified.                                     |
|                                                                              |
| * * * RETRACTION ON 10/26/01 AT 1315 ET REPORTED BY KEVIN DAHM TAKEN BY      |
| MACKINNON * * *                                                              |
|                                                                              |
| Upon further evaluation, it has been determined that  License Condition 2.C  |
| (9) was not violated.  The steps in question in the CTG 11-1 Control         |
| Building and in the EDG-11 Switchgear Room can be completed successfully     |
| with the current lighting configuration; and therefore, there is no adverse  |
| affect on the ability to achieve and maintain safe shutdown.  License        |
| Condition 2.C (9)  is thus met, and this condition is not reportable under   |
| License Condition 2.F.  The original notification, Event Number 38380, is    |
| retracted. R3DO (Brent Clayton) notified.                                    |

| Prap Industries was performing work on a newly paved road which was closed   |
| to traffic at the intersection of Interstate 95 and Route 31 located in      |
| Ewing, NJ.   A Prap Rock Industries employee placed the Troxler gauge, Model |
| # 4640B, in a cart and moved the cart next to a tree and went off to perform |
| other duties.  When the person returned, time unknown how long the person    |
| was away from the unattained gauge, he discovered that the gauge and cart    |
| were missing.  This individual immediately notified the onsite New Jersey    |
| State Troopers that the gauge was missing.  A search of the area was         |
| conducted with not results in finding either the gauge or the cart.  NRC     |

| A Troxler gauge was stored in an approved temporary storage site at a        |
| construction facility.  Overnight, several storage containers and offices    |
| were broken into.  The hasp of the storage container was broken and an       |

| stolen.  The police have been notified and a press release will be issued.   |

| AUTOMATIC REACTOR SCRAM. ALL RODS FULLY INSERT INTO THE CORE.                |

| Unit Two reactor scram.  The cause is presently under investigation.         |
| Preliminary indications are that the "B" Recirculation pump experienced a    |
| runback which was immediately followed by an increase to its previous speed, |
| resulting in a rapid reactor power increase causing the neutron monitoring   |
| system (Average Power Range Monitors) to trip and cause a reactor scram.     |
| All rods fully inserted into the core.  The following isolations occurred:   |
| Primary Containment isolated (Group 2 isolation), Secondary Containment      |
| isolation which started the Standby Gas Treatment System,  and Reactor Water |
| Clean-up isolated (Group 5 isoaltion).   HPCI and RCIC system initiated on   |
| low low reactor vessel water level, but did not inject into the reactor due  |
| to the feedwater system recovering reactor pressure vessel water level.  All |
| Emergency Core Cooling systems and the Emergency Diesel Generators are fully |
| operable if needed and the electrical grid is stable.                        |
|                                                                              |

| The licensee reported that the auxiliary boiler (steam generator) feedwater  |
| pump 21 was declared inoperable at 0021 EDT due to high packing temperature  |
| during the planned plant shutdown.  Later at 0208 EDT, the second pump, 23,  |
| was declared inoperable because the outboard bearing could not be kept below |
| 200F without the use of city water.  City water is not seismically          |
| qualified leading to the declaration of pump 23 being inoperable.  Pump 23   |
| is functional and able to provide feedwater.  Pump 22 is being used and is   |
| fully operational.  The plant is being cooled down as planned and due to the |
| pump problems has until 1400 EDT today, 10/27/01, to cool down to less than  |
| 350F in accordance with technical specifications.  The licensee expects to  |
| meet the requirement with no trouble.                                        |
