Russia builds first floating nuclear plant

Plant set to create power for 45,000 people, but environmentalists criticise plan.


Russia is building the world’s first floating nuclear power plant for mass production.

The plant is designed to create enough electricity for 45,000 people and will have the added ability to purify sea water into fresh water.

But the plan is drawing criticism from environmental groups.

Al Jazeera’s Neave Barker gained rare access to the first of several plants being built in St Petersburg.
