First Offshore Nuclear Power Plant in the World Launched
The "Akademic Lomonosov" offshore nuclear power plant

Recently engineers from St. Petersburg celebrated launch of the first offshore nuclear power plant in the world, which was named after a great Russian scientist M. Lomonosov.
      An offshore nuclear power plant (ONPP) is a low-power energy source, designed with help of Russian technologies of nuclear shipbuilding and aimed at supplying energy to Russians, inhabiting Far North, Far East and other remote territories of the Russian Federation.
      The ONPP consists of a flush deck non-propelled vessel with two reactors of ice-breaking type. Each reactor has electrical capacity of 35 megawatt and thermal power of 140 gigacalories. The plant can also work as a desalination unit, which is very important for countries with limited fresh water. The plant can work almost anywhere, even in permafrost areas, and doesnt require many supporting engineers.
