A SURVEY OF UNIQUE TECHNICAL FEATURES OF THE FLOATING NUCLEAR POWER PLANT CONCEPT

The manufacture, installation, operation, and decommissioning of floating nuclear power plants at offshore sites is examined with respect to the major technical differences between such plants and land-based nuclear power plants. Anticipated environmental effects of activities associated with offshore nuclear plants are discussed. Possible accidents, both inplant and during the transport of radioactive materials to and from an offshore plant, are described and an initial estimate of their relative significance presented.
