MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – January 5, 2023) The floating nuclear power plant (NPP) project proposed by the Russian state nuclear corporation Rosatom is suitable for Indonesia as the technology is reliable, Indonesian Ambassador to Moscow Jose Antonio Morato Tavares said Sputnik .
In October 2022, the Russian ambassador to Indonesia, Lyudmila Vorobyova, said that Russia is ready to build a nuclear power plant in the future capital of Indonesia, Nusantara. She said Russia also has the technology of floating nuclear power plants that attach to large ships and can be placed anywhere, making them indispensable in the event of natural disasters.
“It is very good for our country because it is (on) islands.
.. and a floating power plant can move from one island to another. It is very important, very important,” the Indonesian ambassador said, adding that the technology is “very reliable” in terms of seismic stability.
In the summer of 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered his Indonesian counterpart Joko Widodo cooperation to work on a nuclear project in Indonesia. Putin said Rosatom has sufficient experience, competence and technological reliability for that.
Indonesia is located in the most seismically active zone of the planet and is part of the Pacific Ring of Fire. Seismologists register 6,000-7,000 earthquakes with a magnitude above 4.0 there every year.
