Floating Nuclear Power Unit Went to Chukotka
OREANDA-NEWS. Floating nuclear power unit Academician Lomonosov went from Murmansk to the place of operation. In Chukotka, the station will have to replace the waste capacity of other facilities. Floating power unit "Academician Lomonosov" will be based in Pevek.
Academician Lomonosov went from the berth of Rosatomflot (the enterprise of the state Corporation Rosatom) to the Chukotka port of Pevek with the help of tugs, which will lead him as on a tight string. One jerk will pull the power unit, and the other will hold it, providing braking. This will be followed by a third, spare tug.
"The floating power unit is equipped to ensure full maintenance of the reactor plant in a safe state," Vitaly Trutnev, Director of the Directorate for construction and operation of the FAES, told Rosatom management.
