DRESDEN NUCLEAR POWER STATION, UNIT 2: NRC Makes Available Application to Transfer Bellefonte Construction Permits
Dresden Nuclear Power Station, Unit 2 issued the following announcement on Nov. 26.
The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has received an application from Nuclear Development
LLC, to transfer the deferred construction permits for the unfinished Bellefonte Unit 1 and 2 reactors in
Alabama. The application is now available for public review on the NRC website.
Nuclear Development filed the application on Nov. 13, seeking to transfer the permits from the
Tennessee Valley Authority. The Bellefonte units are partially complete pressurized-water reactors
located approximately six miles northeast of Scottsboro, Ala. The NRC placed the Bellefonte
construction permits in deferred status in 2010.
The NRC staff is reviewing the application to determine if it has sufficient information to
complete the agency’s review. If the application is determined to be complete, the staff will docket it
and publish a notice of opportunity to request an adjudicatory hearing before the NRC’s Atomic Safety
and Licensing Board. Information about the license transfer process is available on the NRC website.
