The floating nuclear power plant “Academician Lomonosov” will get its two reactors fueled at the Baltic Shipyard in the center of St. Petersburg, Russia’s second biggest city. The shipyard has confirmed such plans to the Rosbalt news agency. Greenpeace is concerned that if Rosatom runs this dangerous operation it will break the current legislation and will put five million residents of the city at risk. The floating nuclear power plant that is being built in St Petersburg, is a new experimental vessel. Its environmental impact assessment and licensing procedures must take into account that the barge would become a nuclear power plant not at its final destination, in Pevek in Chukotka in the Russian Far East, but in St Petersburg.
