Russia's Floating Nuclear Power Plant Has Hit the Sea


Russia launched the world’s first floating nuclear power plant on Saturday. The 70-megawatt vessel, christened the Akademik Lomonosov, is being towed from St. Petersburg to the town of Murmansk for fuel. It will then embark for the Arctic town of Pevek in 2019. It is intended to help power the port town, replacing the 44-year-old Bilibino power plant and the 70-year-old Chaunskaya Thermal Power Plant The vessel has a flat-bottomed hull so that it can get closer to shorelines, and no self-propulsion, making it more vulnerable to storms. Greenpeace has referred to the vessel as “Chernobyl on ice” and a “nuclear Titanic” bound for catastrophe, saying it “poses a shockingly obvious threat to a fragile environment which is already under enormous pressure from climate change.” https://ift.tt/2raI0Xv http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
