The British said that Russia is again ahead of the West

The British edition The Daily Mail published an article about the world’s first floating nuclear power plant (FNPP), based in the city of Pevek, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.

This unit was developed by Rosatom. It provides the city with heat using energy generated by two reactors. According to experts, such a concept could help minimize climate change by reducing the use of sources of greenhouse gas emissions such as coal and gas. Companies in the United States, China and France, according to The Daily Mail, are currently considering building similar reactors.

This article sparked intense discussion in the comments from readers.

“As usual, many miles ahead of the West,” said user sb4100.

“Build 30 new nuclear power plants and transfer the whole country to electricity heating – the simplest and most convenient. No more gas pipes, gas boilers, emissions”, wrote kaalus.

“Of course, it is possible to build a small modular nuclear power plant that will provide the city with energy. We are missing an opportunity here”, said Its Grim up North.

“An absolutely sane idea. If done correctly, it makes sense, ”said winstonion.

“If it works well enough, then it’s a good idea. You can build the same one and send it somewhere else”, said AquaEmperor.

“As long as it’s cheap and makes celebrities moan, I’m in business,” added David1991.

The floating nuclear power plant began its work on December 19, 2019, and at the end of May 2020 it was put into commercial operation. At the end of June, the station supplied the first heat to consumers in Chukotka. The floating nuclear power plant consists of the onshore infrastructure and the Akademik Lomonosov floating power unit, which is equipped with two KLT-40S reactors with a capacity of 35 megawatts each. Electric power is 70 megawatts, thermal power is 50 gigacalories per hour.
