The world's first floating nuclear power plant

post-image
Nuclear-powered submarines, aircraft carriers and even icebreakers have been in operation for over 50 years now with a remarkable success rate. Russia is further commercialising that technology by building a fleet of floating nuclear power plants that will provide electricity to remote areas where building a permanent reactor is either too expensive or too dangerous. It launched the world?s first floating nuclear power plant in April this year. Other countries have floated the idea ?namely China and the US. Construction on the Russian floating power plant first began in 2007, but hit many snags along the way. Rosatom plans to begin building a second floating power plant next year. https://gizmodo.com/russias-floating-nuclear-power-plant-has-hit-the-sea-1825650002/amp
