A drone toured the world’s first floating nuclear power plant ‘Akademik Lomonosov’ in Murmansk on Friday to get a bird’s eye view of the plant as it readies to depart to Chukotka.

The floating nuclear plant is 144 metres (470 feet) long and 30 metres (100 feet) wide, houses two nuclear reactors, and is named after 18th-century Russian scientist Mikhail Lomonosov.

Akademik Lomonosov will leave the Murmansk later on Friday and embark on a 5,000-kilometre (3,100 mile) journey along the Arctic coast until it reaches Chukotka in Russia’s Far East, where the plant will begin producing energy as the world’s northernmost nuclear power station.
