Russia Building 1st Floating Nuke Plant

‘Russia began construction of its first floating nuclear power plant Sunday, and plans to build at least six more despite long-standing environmental concerns that they are vulnerable to accidents at sea, Russian news agencies reported.

Russia justifies the program as a way of bringing power to some of the country’s most remote areas, also saying some of the plants could be sold to other nations.

The head of Russia’s atomic energy agency, Sergei Kiriyenko, said the plants will be safe.’
