THE CNSG 3; CONCEPTUAL MERCHANT SHIP NUCLEAR REACTOR DESIGN. REVISION 1

The design for a conceptual merchant ship nuclear reactor, the Consolidated Nuclear Steam Generator 3 (CNSG 3) is presented. The CNSG 3 is an improved pressurized water reactor that is more economical than conventional power plants for high shaft horsepower and high load factor applications. The entire primary system is contained in one pressure vessel, resulting in a compact and light system. The refueling cycle is completed in less than 3 weeks. Consideration is given to economics, safety analysis, operational procedures, design, future potential of water-cooled marine reactors, technical support services, and design history. An appendix gives plant information sheets.
