"Combined they will produce 70 megawatts of electricity, almost a twentieth of that produced by land-based plants. "

Can you say 'attack submarine' or 'missile boat'?

"The problem is the fact that reactors of the KLT-40C variety are to be used on the ship. Plants of this type are also used to power Russia's nuclear-powered icebreakers. " If it is safe enough for a moving ice-breaker ship, why not for a relatively stationary barge?

Ships can be drydocked for repair..Barges can't..Barges are more prone to the elements of weather, seas, corrosione etc. as stationary platforms..
