This safety evaluation report (SER) documents the technical review of the Callaway Nuclear Plant, Unit 1 (Callaway), license renewal application (LRA) by the United States (U.S.) Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff (the staff). By letter dated December 15, 2011, Union Electric Company, doing business as Ameren Missouri (Ameren Missouri or the applicant), submitted the LRA in accordance with Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 54, "Requirements for Renewal of Operating Licenses for Nuclear Power Plants." Ameren Missouri requests renewal of the Callaway operating license (Operating License No. NPF-30) for a period of 20 years beyond the current expiration at midnight October 18, 2024.

Callaway is located approximately 25 miles east-northeast of Jefferson City, Missouri. The NRC issued the Callaway construction permit on April 16, 1976, and operating license on October 18, 1984. Callaway is of a pressurized-water reactor design. Westinghouse Electric Corporation designed and supplied the nuclear steam supply system, and General Electric Company designed and supplied the turbine generator. The containment is a carbon steel-lined, concrete structure designed by Bechtel Power Corporation. The Callaway licensed power output is 3,565 megawatts thermal.

Unless otherwise indicated, this SER presents the status of the staff’s review of information submitted through June 20, 2014, the cutoff date for consideration in the SER. The five open items previously identified by the staff for the SER with Open Items, issued April 23, 2013, have been closed (see SER Section 1.5); therefore, no open items remain to be resolved before the final determination is reached by the staff on the LRA.
