The construction of the first floating nuclear power plant in history has kicked off in St Petersburg.

The plant, which represents a nonself-propelled 144-metres long vessel, will be used for the generation of both electricity and heat as well as sea water conversion at any poorly developed territory close to the sea. The vessel will have two nuclear reactors with a capacity of 35,000 kilowatts each. Constructors say the plant’s life span will be limited to 38 years, while every 12 years it will need to be reloaded
