Duke Energy's request for an extension of the deadline to complete a new approach to fire protection at its Oconee nuclear plant in South Carolina was rejected by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

"Oconee had requested additional time from the [NRC] primarily to complete the installation of one of the modifications, the protected service water system," said Sandra Magee, a company spokeswoman.
