Russia approves plans for floating plant infrastructure

Russia’s Glavgosexpertiza, the Ministry of Construction’s expert organisation for the appraisal of design documentation and engineering survey results, has approved documents relating to the construction of coastal and hydraulic structures and infrastructure facilities to support the country’s first Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear power plant at Pevek in the autonomous far east region of Chukotka.

The documents detail plans for the construction of buildings and structures on the banks of the Pevek Strait for storage of specialised equipment need for the physical protection of Akademik Lomonosov facilities.

The plans include shelter for boats, booms and equipment including cars, all-terrain vehicles and snowmobiles. A stationary pier will be built for the secure mooring of the ship.
