In October, the Akademik Lomonosov, built by the State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom”, received the prestigious Asian Power Awards, becoming the best nuclear power plant of the year.
The world’s only Floating Nuclear Power Plant is located in Pevek, Chukotka region in the Russian Far East. It is the northernmost nuclear power plant in the world.
