At the same time, onshore and hydraulic structures for the floating nuclear power plant (FNPP), as well as infrastructure ensuring the transmission of electricity to the local grid and heating for the city’s network, are scheduled to be completed by the end of this year in Pevek in Russia.

The FPU is scheduled to be towed to the Port of Pevek during the summer of 2019 where it will operate as part of a floating nuclear power plant, replacing the capacities of the outgoing Bilibino Nuclear Power Plant and the Chaunskaya CHPP. It is expected to be connected to the power grid by December 2019. (IANS)
