After Chernobyl and Fukushima you would think we would know better it's just crazy so many things could go wrong . They are panning on using it to heat and power the remote Arctic .



The world’s first floating nuclear power plant (NPP), built by Russia and called the ‘Akademik Lomonosov,’ has received a license for operation. It is to provide heat and energy to Russia’s remote regions in the Arctic.


Can they just do this or is there any Organization that could stop them ? This is the 1st I've heard of it and stumbled across it by accident .

Wow, good for Russia!
Good idea, easy to cool any meltdowns.

When can we get one???

Yeah at what cost to the environment ?

Sure, let's see if it turns the sea to steam when it all goes wrong. Trying to contain that disaster will be a learning experience in any case.

What do you mean?
How does a self contained nuclear reactor effect the environment?
Everything is contained and the water keeps everything cool. Just clean water vapor (steam) is what's released.

Nah
What, a couple few dozen messed up narwhales? You won't even notice.

They only built it because it was cheaper to build then move but yeah it's a great idea. Ships have been using reactors for decades so a proven design.

Now they will have no reason not to try and build in Antarctica . Just think a mobile nuclear power plant why stop at just building one ? They say it can power a city of 100,000 .

Pretty sure it's not exactly new. Most modern navy vessels including Russian and American (and many other nations) have their own nuclear reactors on board to produce the power they need for everyday operations.

Submarines also utilize nuclear reactors for power. May not be the same scale as being reported but generate oceans of power and the same hazards that land based plants produce so not exactly a big deal.

Do you mean Arctic? Or are their supply lines going to span the globe?

I'm not sure most modern vessels are nuclear other than subs. Chinese?, Russian, French and US carriers but how modern are they?

Well, aren't some of our (USA) military's ships nuclear-powered?

Yes, our vessels other than submarines have been nuclear powered for decades.

I don't think on a scale that can power a city of 100.000 .

How much power you think is needed to move an 80,000 ton Aircraft Carrier to 30 knots ??

The Russian reactor in the article produces 75MW, a new Nimitz Class carrier produces 194MW. Even with my remedial math skills that's like more or something.

More nuclear power is the boogeyman doom porn!

I support this power plant.

It's a good idea. If it goes fubar in the middle of the ocean, that's perfectly fine, relative to alternatives.

They just opened the gates and let those guys up from the hot place and they are feeling cold!

That is enough power for a decent sized vodka infused sweatbath!
