September 27 is one of two steam-generating units KLT-40S were loaded on the world’s first floating power station "Academician Lomonosov", construction of power is at the Baltic Shipyard in St. Petersburg.
The second nuclear reactor will be installed on a regular place on October 1.
Installing the steam-generating units is a key step in the construction of floating power "Academician Lomonosov".
220-ton steam generating unit constructed under the project OKBM. Africantov this morning, transported from a hangar shop number 6 Baltic plant to outfitting quay.
Dive into the reactor compartment PEB held in the presence of the customer, "Rosenergoatom", and the Russian Maritime Register of Shipping floating crane "Demag".
The last time the Baltic Plant carried out such an operation in 2001, when he was building icebreaker "50 Years of Victory" — the last series of icebreaker "Arktika". So this is a watershed event, clearly indicating that the plant was revived.
Work on the completion of PEB are in accordance with the agreed schedule, on the order involved more than 280 workers and engineers.
After loading, the construction of the nuclear reactor vessel actually goes into the final stage.
In recent months, the intensity of work has increased many times on the order that gives assurance: floating unit will be ready in time.
HSE Construction started in 2008 and frozen in mid-2011 and was renewed in December 2012, when, after long negotiations, a contract was signed between "Baltic Shipyard — Shipbuilding" and the customer unit, "Rosenergoatom".
Under the contract, the Baltic plant shall deliver HSE ready to be towed to site, 9 September 2016.
Floating nuclear power station "Academician Lomonosov" — the parent project series mobile transportable units of low power, developed OKBM. II Africantov.
Floating nuclear power plant power plant has a maximum electrical output of 70 MW and includes two KLT-40S.
Expected home base of the first floating nuclear power plant — the Chukchi Pevek. The station is designed for heat and electricity, as well as for the desalination of sea water.
Pressurized water nuclear reactor KLT-40S capacity of about 40 MW and thermal capacity of 150 Gcal per hour is designed for 36-year operation with two overloads cores every 12 years.
