This memorandum summarizes the telephone discussion on May 17, 2015, between the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) staff and Omaha Public Power District (OPPD, the licensee) staff regarding the licensee's request for relief RR-14 for Fort Calhoun Station, Unit 1 (FCS). Participants in the discussion included L. Cortopassi, J. Wilson, W. Hansher, et al. (OPPD), and M. Markley, D. Alley, F. Lyon, et al. (NRC). 

By letter to the NRC dated May 9, 2015 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML 15129A004), as supplemented by letters dated May 13, 16, and 17, 2015 (ADAMS Accession Nos. ML15135A387, ML15136A002, and ML15142A411, respectively), OPPD submitted RR-14 for the inspection of reactor vessel head nozzles at FCS. In RR-14, the licensee proposed to use alternative inspection requirements for reactor vessel head nozzles with respect to American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Code Case N-729-1, "Alternative Examination Requirements for PWR [Pressurized-Water Reactor] Reactor Vessel Upper Heads With Nozzles Having Pressure-Retaining Partial-Penetration Welds Section XI, Division 1," as conditioned in Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) paragraph 50.55a(g)(6)(ii)(D) until the end of operating cycle 28 or until a degraded reactor vessel head nozzle is detected. 

IAEA Publishes 2014 Statistics on World Nuclear Power Reactors

An annual IAEA publication on the world’s nuclear power reactors shows that, as of the end of 2014, 70 reactors were under construction and 96 more were reported to the IAEA as planned. The 2015 Edition of the  Nuclear Power Reactors in the World  (Link to download) provides reliable and crisp information on power reactors operating, under construction and shut down as well as performance data on reactors operating in the IAEA Member States.

Unit 2 at Susquehanna Nuclear Plant Returns to Service

BERWICK, Pa., May 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Unit 2 at PPL Corporation's Susquehanna nuclear plant in Luzerne County, Pa., resumed generating safe, reliable electricity for the power grid Monday (5/25) after completing its scheduled refueling and maintenance outage.

Susquehanna's nuclear professionals replaced approximately 40 percent of the unit's uranium fuel, and performed maintenance and ongoing upgrades. The Susquehanna plant's two generating units have planned refueling and maintenance outages every 24 months.

Indian Point reactor back on line two weeks after transformer fire

BUCHANAN >AP> A reactor that was shut down during a transformer fire two weeks ago at the Indian Point nuclear power plant in Westchester County has returned to service.

Plant owner Entergy Nuclear said Tuesday that Indian Point 3 went back online Monday. The transformer that was destroyed in the May 9 fire has been replaced.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. And a cleanup continues of oil from the transformer that leaked into the nearby Hudson River.

Beaver Valley 1 Back

FirstEnergy Corp. this week restarted a nuclear reactor at its Beaver Valley power plant that was offline for a month for regular maintenance and refueling.


The Akron, Ohio-based utility shut down Unit 1 at the Shippingport plant April 25. In addition to completing several maintenance projects, crews replaced 61 of the reactor's 157 fuel assemblies.


The reactor restarted Sunday and was expected to be at full power by late Tuesday. Unit 2 remained online.

Watts Bar 2 is one step closer to an Operating License.

The Commission has approved the staff's recommendation to grant the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) the authority to issue a full-power operating license effective upon issuance to the Tennessee Valley Authority for Watts Bar Nuclear Plant Unit 2 if the Director of NRR determines that the applicable findings may be made and the proceeding is uncontested. As the staff noted in SECY-15-0068, if the proceeding is contested, the regulations of 10 CFR Part 2 will control and may require the Director of NRR to issue, deny, or appropriately condition the license in accordance with the presiding officer's initial decision once that decision becomes effective. 

During these final stages of review and inspection, the NRC staff should maintain its focus on transparency and sharing information with the public.

have a black MC cl??s and have experienced no problems with chipping, etc - but I don't use it on a daily basis. I would think that for a daily wallet that's going to get a lot of use, one of the other canvases might be a better choice in the long run. I don't think Vernis would be affected by use in a warm climate, though - as someone else said, when they say it shouldn't be left in the heat they mean i louis vuitton purse
