Moscow: Russia's world first floating nuclear power station on Saturday completed a 5,000-kilometre Arctic transfer to the country's far east, the Rosatom nuclear agency said.

“The Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear plant arrived ... at Pevek, in the autonomous district of Chukotka,” where it is to start operating by year end once connected to the local electricity grid, Rosatom said.

 

What will be the world's northernmost nuclear power plant left Murmansk in Russia’s far north on August 23 after being loaded with combustible nuclear fuel.

The 21-ton, 144-metre (470 feet) long and 30-metre wide platform, which is designed to meet the energy needs of remote communities, was towed into Pevek by a clutch of vessels.

The station houses two 35-megawatt reactors, more in line with the power of nuclear-powered ice breakers than typical new generation nuclear plants boasting nearer 1,000 MW capacity.

The Akademik Lomonosov is to provide energy for around 100,000 people and also power oil platforms as Russia develops extraction of natural resources in a mineral-rich area whose eastern tip is a few dozen kilometres from Alaska.
