November 3, 1989
Foreign-Trade Zone 78 -- Nashville, TN; Extension of Time Limit for
Subzone 8D, Global Power Company Equipment Storage Facility, Phipps Bend,
TEXT: An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones Board
(the Board) by the Metropolitan Nashville Port Authority (Port Authority),
grantee of FTZ 78, requesting an extension of the time limit on Subzone
78D (to 10-25-93) at the Global Power Company's nuclear equipment storage
facility in Phipps Bend, Tennessee. Global Power Company (Global), a
Delaware Corp., (an affiliate of Park Co.) replaced the Tennessee Valley
Authority (TVA) as operator in January 1989. The application was submitted
pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended
(19 USC 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR Part 400). It
was formally filed on October 23, 1989.
Subzones 78C and 78D were approved by the Board on March 30, 1984, to
allow TVA to defer duties on certain foreign-sourced nuclear power plant
equipment purchased for power plants that were never built (Board Order
246, 49 FR 13562). Approval was granted for five years (3-30-89), during
which time TVA had expected to sell the equipment. In 1988, TVA executed
an agreement with Global and its affiliate Park Company (Park), pursuant
to which Park purchased the equipment and Global applied to become
operator. Park planned to sell the equipment to foreign customers. Based
on a request from the Port Authority on behalf of Park, the Board approved
a time extension of subzone status until December 31, 1989 for Subzone
78D, and October 25, 1993 for Subzone 78C (Board Order 413, 53 FR 51575).
The Port Authority is now requesting that the time limit for Subzone 78D
be extended to October 25, 1993. This would give Park additional time to
sell the equipment at that site.
The examiners committee which will review the request consists of: John
J. Da Ponte, Jr. (Chairman), Director, Foreign-Trade Zones Staff, U.S.
Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230; Joel Mish, District Director,
U.S. Customs Service, South Central Region, 423 Canal Street, New Orleans,
Louisiana 70130-2341; and, Colonel James P. King, District Engineer, U.S.
Army Engineer District Nashville, P.O. Box 1070, Nashville, TN 37202-1070.
Comments concerning the proposed time extension are invited in writing
from interested parties. They should be addressed to the Board's Executive
Secretary at the address below and postmarked on or before November 24,
A copy of the application is available for public inspection at each of
