IT House September 2 news, according to the International Ship Network reported yesterday, Wison (Nantong) Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. held the hull keel laying ceremony of Russia's first new-generation floating nuclear power plant on August 30. Rosatom Atomenergomash, its machinery manufacturing arm, participated in the ceremony via video. Last year, Rosneft opened tenders for the construction of two floating nuclear power plant hulls for Asian shipyards, of which South Korea's KHAN Precision Industry offered $325 million and Sichuan Honghua Petroleum Co., Ltd. bid $248 million. In the end, Wison (Nantong) Heavy Industries won the bid at a price of about 30% below the maximum bid limit, with a winning bid of US$226 million. According to reports, Russia's first new-generation floating nuclear power plant has a hull of 140 meters in length and a width of 30 meters. It is worth mentioning that this is the first time a Chinese shipyard has built such a hull. According to the contract agreement, Wison Heavy Industries needs to deliver the first hull (including the superstructure) before October 2, 2023, and Russia will complete the installation of subsequent reactors and other facilities. Wison Heavy Industries will deliver the second hull by February 2, 2024. IT House learned that the "Academik Lomonosov" of the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation was put into commercial operation in May last year. This is the world's first floating nuclear power plant at sea. It was built by the St. Petersburg Shipyard and deployed in Russia. Pevek City, Chukotka Autonomous Region in the Far East, its main function is to provide electricity for factories, cities and offshore natural gas and oil drilling platforms in extremely remote areas of Russia.
