ABSTRACT
This article describes the Russian nuclear-energy company Rosenergoatom's plan to deliver electricity to hard-to-reach northern territories near the White Sea via a floating nuclear plant, where harsh weather makes regular coal and oil fuel deliveries unreliable and expensive. However, an accident at sea could do far more damage than the plume of nuclear fallout kicked up by the 1986 explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the former U.S.S.R.
