The 70-megawatt vessel, christened the Akademik Lomonosov, is being towed from St. Petersburg to the town of Murmansk for fuel. It will then embark for the Arctic town of Pevek in 2019. It is intended to help power the port town, replacing the 44-year-old Bilibino power plant and the 70-year-old Chaunskaya Thermal Power Plant The vessel has a flat-bottomed hull so that it can get closer to shorelines, and no self-propulsion, making it more vulnerable to storms.
