NUCLEAR PROTOTYPE POWER PLANT INSTALLATION IN MERCHANT SHIPS. PHASE 2 REPORT
In Phase 1 of this study of techniques for installing prototype nuclear power plants in merchant ships, it was concluded that a test vehicle should be constructed, tested at a remote site, and then integrated into the ship's hull. This report develops the design, cost, and production schedule of the test vehicle and adapts the reference nuclear prototype power plant to the vehicle. Consideration is also given to refining the method of transporting the vehicle between shipyard and test site, delineating the test program and test site requirements, and further refining hazards analysis. Analyses of collision protection and launching are included in two appendices.
