Russia’s state nuclear corporation Rosatom said it expects to begin overseas sales of floating nuclear power plants in the next decade, the state news agency Tass reported.

Tass quoted Rosatom head Aleksei Likhachev as saying floating nuclear units “will become one of the elements of our foreign sales in the next decade”.

He said Russia’s first floating nuclear plant, the Akademik Lomonosov, has “aroused great interest among Rosatom’s foreign partners”.
