Russia’s floating nuclear power plant Akademik Lomonosov has left Baltiysky Zavod shipyard in Saint Petersburg. It has two 35 Megawatt KLT-40S nuclear reactors, similar to those used in Russia’s nuclear-powered ice breakers. Akademik Lomonosov left the shipyard on 28 April and is now heading to its permanent base in Russia’s northernmost city of Pevek.
The journey consists of two stages. The floating nuclear power plant, which has no nuclear fuel on board, will be towed from Baltiysky Zavod to Atomflot’s berth in Murmansk. Then, in the summer of 2019, it will be sent from Murmansk to the seaport of Pevek.
