Floating nuclear co-generation plant (FNCP) “Akademik Lomonosov”, is world’s first pilot design of the set of small transportable power plants. Will be capable of generating up to 70 megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to provide electricity to a city of 200,000 people.
The first-of-its-kind ship will contain a pair of small nuclear KLT-40 naval propulsion reactors.
The investigations and design studies show the possibility to develop the new-grade power sources based on ship reactors mastered in Russia for commercial production of electric power, desalinated water, industrial and residential heat.
JSC “Afrikantov OKBM” is the designer, manufacturer and complete supplier of power plants, capable of generating 38.5 MW electric power each.
The units can continuously operate during 10-12 years without refueling and repair while the total operation period is 40 years.
