"Chernobyl on the ice"? Russia is about to put into use floating nuclear power station according to foreign media reports, critics call the floating nuclear power station in a Russian town in the Arctic Circle "Chernobyl on the ice". There is not enough information to make a specific risk assessment of the nuclear power plant, but it is understood that the nuclear reactor has provided power for submarines for more than 60 years

this floating nuclear power station, called akademiklomonosov, has been under construction since 2009. On Saturday local time, the nuclear power plant of Rosatom, the Russian state-run nuclear power company, launched its first voyage. Now, it is slowly driving from St. Petersburg to Murmansk town. This autumn, its two reactors will be ignited

according to Rosatom's draft, by the summer of 2019, akademiklomonosov will go to pewick town and provide enough power for 100000 people there. Rosatom pointed out that the two reactors on the barge could generate up to 70 megawatts of electricity. Johnkoteck, vice president in charge of policy development and public affairs of the Russian Institute of nuclear energy, said that after more than seven years, the order of magnitude of data line shielding processing is about 7% of that of a large commercial reactor in the United States, but the technology will be exhibited at the npe2015 exhibition in Orlando, Florida

however, Greenpeace, which proposed "Chernobyl on ice", expressed concern about this. They were afraid that the reactor would endanger the environment and that it did not seem to be adequately supervised. Human development has witnessed several extremely devastating nuclear accidents, such as the Chernobyl explosion in Ukraine in 1986 and the Fukushima nuclear power plant leak in Japan in 2011, which have caused extremely terrible damage to the surrounding environment and residents

in addition, the idea of using floating nuclear reactors to power is actually not so simple. In 1982, the U.S. Navy proposed the idea of using nuclear submarines to provide power to Kauai Island after the hurricane destroyed the Hawaiian power system. Daleklein, head of the Bush era Nuclear Regulatory Commission and now vice president of the University of Texas, pointed out that it is not easy to design a safe nuclear reactor in open waters. Generally, the correct use of the fixture of the experimental machine should be that the core of the terrestrial nuclear power plant will be wrapped under a dome made of reinforced concrete. If the pipe breaks, all raw materials will continue to remain in the containment. When moving to a mobile offshore nuclear power plant, the situation may be completely different. It needs to consider how to deal with the problem safely after the pipeline breaks
