Russia has launched a floating nuclear power plant and plans to put it in the artic.

The Akademik Lomonosov is headed for Arctic port of Pevek (NE Russia) in about a year.

From the people that brought you “Chernobyl” and “the nuclear power cruise missile explosion” comes a nuclear power plant in the Artic (just a matter of time before another disaster).

The plant has two KLT-40S reactor units that can generate up to 70 MW of electric energy and 50 Gcal/hr of heat energy, according to Rosatom it’s enough for a town populated with 100, 000 people.

Allegedly the purpose of the plant is to supply energy to remote industial plants, port cities, and to offshore gas and oil platforms.

The “neutron” power plant, the workers will be gone, but the power plant will still be standing.

Here’s hoping the Russian have learned something from their last two “nuclear” disasters
