China to Build Floating Arctic Nuclear Power Plant Hulls for Russia

  • A keel-laying ceremony for an Arctic floating nuclear power plant based on the RITM-200 reactor plant has been held at a shipyard in China. Atomenergomash, the machine building division of Rosatom State Corporation, signed the contract in 2021.

    Four floating nuclear power plants are to be built. The first two units will be built abroad due to the tight project schedule and low slot availability at Russian yards, Atomenergomash explained.

    The contractor to build the third and the fourth hulls is to be chosen in the fourth quarter of 2022.

    The barges will measure 140 m long and 30 m wide and weigh 9.5 tons without gear and 19 thousand tons geared. The floating plants will have a power of 100 MWt each. They will be deployed in the Cape Nagleyngyn water basin off Chukotka Peninsula.

    The nuclear power plants for all the four units are already under construction in Russia.
