Russia has chosen the remote town of Severodvinsk along Russia's northern White Sea coastlines for the world's first floating nuclear power station.

The station will float on a river flowing through the town and into the White Sea. The plant will look like a 10-storey building and weigh 21,000 tonnes. In five years it'll generate enough electricity for 200,000 people. The cost will be $336m[1].
