OREANDA-NEWS In Murmansk, a ceremony was held to send the world's first industrial floating nuclear power unit (SEB) "Academician Lomonosov" to the place of operation in Chukotka, RIA Novosti reported.

A four-deck vessel, painted in the colors of the Russian flag, sailed from the Rosatomflot pier to the port of Pevek using tugboats: one of them will pull the power unit, and the other will go behind and slow it down. Next will follow the third, spare ship.

According to experts, the average speed of the towing caravan under favorable conditions will be about four to five knots (seven to nine kilometers per hour).

It is planned that in Chukotka "Academician Lomonosov" will be in three weeks.

Thus, the construction of a floating nuclear power plant (FNPP) is being completed in Russia.

In the spring, tests were carried out, confirming the design indicators of a floating power unit.
