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.

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.
