“100% No Risk”

From the Wall Street Journal (subscription required):

 

In an industrial park in northern Jakarta, traders hawk electronics and pirated DVDs. From a steel-grated storefront here, Alexander Chilikov is trying to sell a floating nuclear power plant.

“There’s 100% no risk,” says Mr. Chilikov, a 44-year-old former vodka salesman from Russia who says he spent six years in prison there. “If you have the information, you can’t be against this.”

Last year, Russia began a broad drive to reinvigorate its nuclear industry. Among the initiatives: At a top-secret shipyard in the country’s far north, Russia’s state-run atomic energy company is overseeing construction on the first of what it says will be a fleet of reactor-equipped ships. The vessels are meant to provide electricity to remote areas, mooring just offshore and supplying enough power to run a small city. Russian officials say the floating plants have generated strong interest among foreign customers.
