   Whereas, FTZ Subzones 78C and 78D at Tennessee Valley Authority's (TVA) 
nuclear facilities in Hartsville and Phipps Bend, Tennessee, were approved 
for a five-year period (Board Order 246, 3/30/84) to provide duty deferral 
on certain unused nuclear power plant equipment stored at the facilities;  
   Whereas, TVA has experienced delays in selling the equipment;

TVA to proceed with a proposed sale of the equipment;

   Whereas, the U.S. Customs Service and the examiners committee assigned 
to the case recommend approval; 
   Whereas, the Board has found that the requirements of the Foreign-Trade 
Zones Act, as amended, and the Board's regulations are satisfied, and that 
approval of the application is in the public interest; 
   Now, Therefore, the Board hereby orders: 
   That the time limits for Subzones 78C and 78D are extended to October 
25, 1993, and December 31, 1989, respectively, in accordance with the
