Ça y est la centrale nucleaire flottante commencer à produire :
Russia’s First Floating Nuclear Power Plant Turns On, Set To Replace Coal

Kenneth RapozaSenior Contributor Dec 19, 2019

Lomonosov, took 10 years to build at a cost of $232 million. The unit, with the electric generation capacity of roughly 70 megawatts, can power a city of 100,000 people. The barge is off the cold, rocky tundra of Chukota along the North Pacific Ocean, a Russian state with a population of roughly 50,000. The ancestors of the Eskimos, Aleuts and the Chukchi all inhabited the region, now home to more polar bears, reindeer and puffin penguins than people.

Now it’s home to what Russia thinks may become a trend in fossil-free fuel—small, floating nuclear power plants.

The new power plant will replace the technologically obsolete Bilibino nuclear power plant in the region, built in 1974 with the capacity to generate 48 megawatts. And a coal-fired power plant will also be shut down. Bilibino will be closed before the end of this year.

Next year, the barge will be connected to the main city there, Pevek, in order to provide heat. The average high temperature there is -11 Fahrenheit in January and February. Fewer than 5,000 people live there.

Russia hopes the power plant and all the development and infrastructure maintenance that surround it will create conditions for accelerated socioeconomic development of Chukotka and will become one of the key infrastructure elements in Russia’s development goals for its northern sea route.

“The task for next year is to complete the commissioning of the facility for fueling commercial operation,” Andrei Petrov, the company’s general director, said in a press release.

The construction of Akademik Lomonosov barge began in 2008 at Russia’s Baltic Shipyard, where it was built by Rosatom subsidiary OKBM Afrikantov, a nuclear engineering firm. It consists of two KLT-40S nuclear fission ship reactors used in Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers.

The first reactor installation was completed last December.

Since the energy of Chukotka is subsidized, the cost of energy for consumers will not change.

Russia likes to refer to the Akademik Lomonosov as the world’s first floating nuclear power plant. It is, for that part of the world. But in the late 1960s, the U.S. government had their MH-1A Sturgis —also a floating nuclear power vessel—which was used to generate the electricity required for the improvement of the Panama Canal.

Besides being the only floating nuclear power plant in the world today, Russia’s Akademik Lomonosov will also be the northernmost nuclear power station once Bilibino is off line.

Rosatom said it wants to build at least seven floating nuclear power plants. The state nuclear power company is currently working on its second generation of floating nuclear vessels, making them smaller and more powerful.

La centrale nucléaire flottante Akademic Lomonosov est désormais complétement opérationelle.
World’s only floating nuclear power plant enters full commercial exploitation

2020 May 22

It officially becomes the 11th NPP in Russia and the northernmost one in the world

One-of-a-kind floating nuclear power plant (FNPP) “Akademic Lomonosov” has been fully commissioned in Pevek, Chukotka region in the Russian Far East. Andrei Petrov, Director of Rosenergoatom (Electric Energy Division of Rosatom), the subsidiary responsible for the FNPP project implementation, signed the relevant decree, Rosenergoatom says in its press release.

“Today we can consider the floating nuclear power plant construction project successfully completed. We finished our main task for this year - fully commissioned the FNPP in Pevek, Chukotka region. Today, it officially becomes the 11th nuclear power plant in Russia and the northernmost one in the world,” Andrei Petrov noted.

Earlier, the Far East directorate of Rostechnadzor, Russia’s technical, nuclear and environmental watchdog, carried out an inspection of the project. Based on its results, the FNPP received a “statement of conformity”. This document verifies that the FNPP is built in accordance with all project documentation requirements. Additionally, the project received approval from Rosprirodnadzor, the executive authority controlling and supervising activities in the field of environmental management. Receiving these documents means that the FNPP fully adheres to all norms and regulations, including sanitary, epidemiological, environmental, fire safety, construction requirements and federal standards.

The FNPP started providing electricity to the isolated grid of the Chaun-Bilibino energy center of Chukotka on December 19, 2019. The US POWER magazine named this event as one of the six key global nuclear energy industry events of 2019.

The FNPP has already generated over 47.3 million kWh of electricity since being connected to the grid. Currently, it covers 20% of the Chaun-Bilibino energy center demand. The FNPP will become the main energy source for Chukotka following the Bilibino NPP shutdown.

The world's only floating nuclear power plant includes coastal infrastructure and the Akademik Lomonosov floating power unit (FPU) equipped with two KLT-40S reactors with an electric power of 35 MW each. The FNPP power capacity is 70 MW while the heat capacity is 50 Gcal / h. The plant’s length is 140 meters, its width is 30 meters, its displacement is 21,500 tons. The service life is 40 years.
