The world's first floating nuclear power unit, the Academician Lomonosov, will leave the Murmansk port of 23 on August. He will go to the Chukchi Pevek.

According to the press service of the district government, Akademik Lomonosov will operate as part of a floating nuclear thermal power plant (FNPP), which will replace the capacities of the Bilibino NPP and Chaun TPP. The unique station will become one of the key infrastructure elements within the framework of the Northern Sea Route development and will create conditions for the accelerated social and economic development of the region.

The protection of the “Academician Lomonosov” will be provided by the employees of the Rosguard of Chukotka. Specific tasks will be assigned to units of private security. Employees undergo special training under the supervision of representatives of Rosatom.

A FNPP will start to work in December 2019 of the year. The station is equipped with two KLT-40С reactor plants. They can generate up to 70 MW of electricity and 50 Gcal / h of thermal energy, this is enough to provide energy to a city with a population of about 100 thousand people.
