Russia’s Rosenergoatom concern is planning to build a fleet of seven autonomous thermal power plants by 2015
Russia’s Rosenergoatom concern is planning to build a fleet of seven autonomous thermal power plants by 2015, in addition to the floating nuclear power plant, already under construction in Severodvinsk, deputy director general of the company Sergei Krysov said on Thursday. "Gazprom displayed considerable interests in floating nuclear power plants, as it needs at least five floating power units to develop new deposits," Krysov said. "To develop the Shtokman field, at least two 200-megawatt floating plants will be needed, and at least three power units for new Yamal deposits," he added. According to Rosenergoatom, one floating station saves approximately 150 million cubic meters of gas a year, and in these terms, it fully pays back after seven or eight years of operation. Krysov said the use of floating power plants is considered at present in Russian regions where the installation of ground-based units is unprofitable. These facilities can also be used for water desalination, if dedicated equipment is installed, he added. The company executive reminded that Rosenergoatom had begun the implementation of the project to build a floating nuclear power plant. The construction might be completed by 2010. The floating reactor will have five radiation protection barriers, and will be able to withstand a 6-magnitude earthquake and a plane crash. The autonomous reactor will occupy an area of six hectares.
