The proposal to organize and realize the international project on the leasing of Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) reactor compartments is brought to the notice of potential partners. This proposal describes the construction of new NPPs or to the replacement of worked-out reactor units of the NPPs in operation on the sites near water areas and to the use of floatation technologies for construction, mounting and transportation of reactor units as a Reactor Compartment Block Module (RCBM). According to the offered project, the RCBM is fabricated in factory conditions at the largest Russian defense shipbuilding plant, State Unitary Enterprise “Industrial Association Sevmashpred-Priyatie” (SEVMASH) in the city of Severodvinsk in the Arkhangelsk region. After the completion of assembling, testing and preliminary licensing, the RCBM is given buoyancy by means of hermetic sealing and by using pontoons and barges. The RCBM delivery to the NPP site situated near a water area is performed by sea route. The RCBM is brought to the place of its installation with the use of appropriate hydraulic structures (canals, shipping locks), then it is lowered onto the basement constructed beforehand and incorporated into the NPP scheme of which the components are installed in advance. Floating means can be detached from the RCBM and used repeatedly for other RCBMs. Further procedures of NPP commissioning and its operation are carried out according to traditional methods by the power company.
