    Cool Russia’s mobile nuclear power plant


    Critics are calling it a “floating Chernobyl.”
    It’s designed to provide power to isolated Artic villages that go along with Russia’s goal to expand and take advantage of strategic items.
    The Russian-built Akademik Lomonosov was issued a 10-year operating license in June and is slated to be towed to its final destination – the small Arctic port of Pevek in the remote Chukotka Region. There it will begin supplying heat and electricity to local consumers before year’s end.

    The US briefly operated one in Panama.

    Would have been cheaper to recommission one of their laid-up nuclear subs.

    It will enable them to be a threat from the Pole (They can secure 50% of the Arctic Circle in 5 years )

    Now at a town at the world’s end. Literally.

    The Akademik Lomonosov was towed from Murmansk, a major port city in northwestern Russia, all the way to the far eastern region of Chukotka, reaching a small town called Pevek on Saturday. The trip lasted 22 days and required a couple of tow boats to move the barge, which lacks its own propulsion, and an icebreaker to deliver the convoy safely through the chilly Arctic waters.
    Why there?
    Because it sits on huge oil deposits and extremely valuable ore deposits.

    I really do wish the Russians would cease and desist with their "advanced" Nuclear reactor programs.

    They seem to have real trouble controlling the fission process.

    Hell. Their damn missiles are safer than their reactors......

    That's not their only problem.

    They are replacing an old nuke that has operated OK for decades.
