It is a vessel that uses nuclear energy for propulsion in lieu of conventional fossil fuels. Various fossil fuel powered engines are in use for vessels such as ice breakers, arctic tankers, and container ships can be replaced with nuclear engines, opening up infinite possibilities, and it also can be used as a power source for mining vessels and subsea plants.
Nuclear ship propulsion process


  • Environmentally friendly ship (reducing emissions such as CO2 and replacing fossil fuels)
