Today, the facility held loading tanks metallovodnoy protection (MHF) for nuclear reactors.
As explained in the press service of the two 300-ton tank Mil made at the Baltic Shipyard, were immersed in the reactor compartment FPU floating crane "Demag" in the presence of the customer, "Rosenergoatom". Because of the difficult ice conditions on the Neva operation carried out in two stages.
"Installation of the tank cost center — is a milestone in the construction of the vessel with a nuclear power plant — the general director of the Baltic Plant Alexander Voznesensky. — As a joke our technologists, which account for more than a dozen of such products, after loading the tank ship, consider, almost built.

Under the contract, the Baltic plant shall deliver HSE ready to be towed to site, 9 September 2016.
Recall that floating nuclear power station "Academician Lomonosov" — head design series mobile transportable units of low power, developed OKBM. II Africantov.
