Rusatom Overseas and CNNC New Energy (China) will cooperate in the creation of floating nuclear power plants

On July 29, 2014, in Moscow, Rusatom Overseas CJSC (a subsidiary of the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom) and CNNC New Energy (China) signed a Memorandum of Intent on cooperation on the project to create floating nuclear power plants, the energy company’s press service reports.

The document was signed by General Director of CNNC New Energy Qian Tianlin and General Director of CJSC Rusatom Overseas D.F. Aliyev.

“Floating power plants have significant application potential. A floating nuclear power plant can be self-propelled and non-self-propelled. Such a station can be connected to the coastal infrastructure or moored next to the center of electricity consumption. Floating NPPs are capable of providing reliable power supply not only to remote settlements, for example, in the Far North and the Far East, but also to large industrial facilities in almost any part of the water area, such as oil platforms, ”noted D.F. Aliev.

The next stage in the implementation of the project will be the creation of a Russian-Chinese working group.

During their visit to Russia on July 24-29, the Chinese delegation visited St. Petersburg and Moscow. The delegation visited the Training Center of the FNPP and LLC Baltiysky Zavod - Sudostroenie, where a meeting was held with the participants of the current project for the construction of the reference FNPP, and also examined the building power unit itself.
