NRC REPORT ON CP&L'S BRUNSWICK PLANT RELEASED

 NRC REPORT ON CP&L'S BRUNSWICK PLANT RELEASED
 RALEIGH, N.C., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- A Nuclear Regulatory


Commission report on Carolina Power & Light's (NYSE: CPL) Brunswick plant near Southport for the last year says that the Brunswick plant has been operated in a safe manner during the assessment period.
 The Systematic Assessment of Licensee Performance (SALP) Report is a formal assessment that supplements the normal regulatory processes of the NRC. NRC reports of this type are issued routinely on all commercial nuclear power plants in the United States. The annual NRC report on the Brunswick plant covers the period Oct. 1, 1990, through Nov. 2, 1991.
 The NRC report evaluated the Brunswick plant's performance in seven areas: plant operations, radiological controls, maintenance and surveillance, emergency preparedness, security, engineering and technical support, and safety assessment and quality verification.
 In each category, the plant is assigned a rating of one ("1"), two ("2") or three ("3"). A "1" rating indicates that reduced NRC attention may be appropriate; a "2" rating indicates that NRC attention should be maintained at normal levels; and a "3" rating indicates that increased attention should be given by both the NRC and the licensee.
 In the report on the Brunswick plant, the NRC assigned five category "2's", and two category "3's" for this assessment period.
 The most significant improvements cited in this SALP period were in the areas of engineering, technical support, radiation control and operations. The two "3's" were in the areas of maintenance and surveillance, and safety assessment and quality verification.
 "Over the last couple of years, CP&L has implemented aggressive improvement programs and taken many corrective actions at the Brunswick plant," says Russell B. Starkey Jr., Vice President of the Brunswick Nuclear Project. "We have seen positive results of these actions. We recognize that we need to make additional improvements to reach the standard of excellence that we desire, and we expect to see continued improvement at the plant as a result of the actions we have taken."
 The draft NRC report will be discussed at a meeting of the NRC and CP&L on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 10:00 a.m. in the Brunswick Community Relations building near the Brunswick Visitors Center.
