MARITIME NUCLEAR POWER FOR HIGH SPEED SERVICES (U.S. NORTH ATLANTIC TO FAR EAST)
In the long term case, in an environment such as that on Trade Route 12 in the time frame of the study, the subsidized American operator can achieve a meaningful increase in net cash flow from a 30 knot nuclear powered marine transportation system, including ships, containers, and terminals, than from the second best alternative, a 20 knot oil-fired container service. On the basis of capital recovery factor, (which is directly related to return on investment), in the long term case it appears that the operator can achieve a return on investment with a 30 knot nuclear system which is comparable to that available to him with a 20 knot oil-fired container system, and superior to that available to him with an oil-fired 30 knot container service or either type 27 knot system. In the long term case, excluding the advent of 30 knot competition, the 27 knot service does not appear as attractive as either the 20 knot oil-fired or the 30 knot nuclear powered system.
