The floating plant “Akademik Lomonosov” is 459-foot long and carries double 35-megawatt nuclear reactors.
The floating plant is gonna be replacing a coal-fired power plant in the town of Pevek, and will supply electricity to over 50,000 people.
The floating power plant is capable of operating non-stop for 3 to 5 years without needing to refuel. The Akademik Lomonosov also comes with some really cool and relaxing facilities for the crew. Like a gym, swimming pool and a bar.
Well just as this might look like a thing of the future, a lot of concerns have been drawn saying that it could be very dangerous and hazardous to the environment.(yes to some extent)
According to Jan Haverkamp, a nuclear-energy expert at environmental nonprofit, he said ” They’ve literally said it unsinkable and those were the very words that were used for the Titanic. For me, that is an alarm light flashing very bright.”(common…what could possibly go wrong)
