STATE AND FUTURE OF NUCLEAR SHIP PROPULSION
At the moment, about 300 nuclear ships are in use on the military sector, as against 6 non-military vessels in operation since 1956. The experience with the nuclear ship OTTO HAHN, in operation since 1968, is reported on, and the further development of the integrated PWR into an 'EFDR' is dealt with. Those questions concerning safety which were decisive for the fundamental approval of the RSK are explained in more detail. International efforts and international maritime law in force for reactor ships are elucidated with a view to future projects and possibilities of nuclear ship propulsion.
