SITING ALTERNATIVES FOR FLOATING NUCLEAR PLANTS: AN UPDATE
The Floating Nuclear Plant (FNP), has a great deal of siting flexibility. Offshore siting is only a part of the total FNP siting story. There are several alternatives that, when combined with offshore siting, provide a very broad spectrum of potential locations for the Floating Nuclear Plant. In order to ensure that the FNP can be sited in a wide variety of locations, it is designed to a broad envelope of conditions. The site envelope parameters were carefully selected so that an optimum balance between siting flexibility and manufacturing costs was achieved. It is this broad site envelope that allows many siting applications other than the classical (2-3 mile) "offshore" concept. The alternatives that are considered here include examples of offshore, nearshore, riverine and onshore site designs that have been developed for specific locations in the last year, but are applicable to similar sites in other locations. These designs are applications of the siting concepts that have been developed over the last few years.
