Floating Nuclear Power Plants Could Save Numerous Lives
OCTOBER 24, 2019
Last month the Akademik Lomonosov, a first-of-its-kind floating nuclear plant built by Russian state nuclear energy corporation, Rosatom, arrived at Pevek, a port town on the remote Chukotka Peninsula in the Russian Arctic. There, the plant is expected to provide power to about 100,000 homes. However, despite this promise, the Lomonosov has come under fire from anti-nuclear groups. A case in point is Germany, where anti-nuclear sentiment has long historical roots.
