The first floating nuclear power plant in Russia’s Far East has resumed after last Checks complete its operation. “Today, we can consider the project for the construction of a floating nuclear power plant as successfully completed,” said the Russian state nuclear Corporation Rosatom on Friday.

The Akademik Lomonosov, which is located near the town of Pevek on the Arctic ocean at anchor, was now officially the “northernmost nuclear power plant in the world”. The operators had already begun by the end of 2019 with the production of electricity.

The NUCLEAR power plant in environmentalists hotly disputed, criticize the system, because of possible security risks as a “floating Chernobyl”. It is not possible to protect the power plant in the polar sea completely from external threats.

Russia is increasingly relying on nuclear energy and wants to sell the floating NUCLEAR power plant, which look like normal ships, but also to other countries. The country wants to build in the future a fleet of floating nuclear power plants. The Akademik Lomonosov is able to supply according to Rosatom, the remote Region in the coming 40 years, with current. Also at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers deal with floating nuclear power plants, in France, the opportunities for this were investigated.

according to the eminent mathematician Mikhail Lomonosov-named ship is 144 meters long and with two nuclear reactors equipped. Thus, the floating end of the nuclear power plant to a total capacity of 70 megawatts. This is about a tenth of what the two reactors in Beznau.
