I've always thought of this as my Ural ice breaker.
If I have to use it, it's too cold to ride.

(And yes, I really own one.)

Also the line about Project 23000 “Shtorm” is laughable.
The project exists on paper only and Russia is trying to sell the idea to India and others to generate money to be able to build a carrier of their own.
"We have idea for cool boat with planes, maybe you buy it and we use profit to build our own."
Capitalism at it's finest; we have truly won the Cold War!

And nobody fears the Admiral Kuznetsov, the only carrier the Russians "operate."
It has to be escorted by tug boats, it's that reliable.
It's effectiveness is laughable against a modern integrated US carrier force.

Cool boat! From the size of the house looks like they plan to berth tourist cruises like with the Yamal. Expensive but be an interesting cruise.

And they (3 in the class, Ural is the third) are nukes, no less. Somebody's planning on staying in the North, for long periods of time.

It's curious they chose to compare the Ural's 350 megawatt reactor power output with our Zumwalt-class destroyer, a gas turbine-powered ship less than half Ural's displacement. I could also mis-match Ural against a Nimitz-class carrier, which displaces over 100,000 tons with two Westinghouse A4W reactors pumping out a total of 1,100 megawatts.

But the first nuclear powered Ural! So our future electric Ural won't need that giant battery under the sidecar, LOL.

The last one running, Diablo Canyon, where I work, will be decommissioned in 2024-2025. It's 2,200 MWe output to be replaced by solar...

And with it goes $27.6M in property taxes paid to the county, public schools (which will now be paid for by state funding), and harbor facilities. And 1,250 employees.

How many acres (sections?!?) of PV panels are require to produce 2,200 MWe? :o

The largest photovoltaic solar plant in the world (China) produces 1,547MW, and needs 43 sq km to do it ( 16.6 sq. mi).

640 acres (per sq mi) x 16.6 = 10,624 acres.

10,624 / 1,547MW = 6.87 acres per MW

6.87 x 2,200MW = 15,108 acres

15,108 / 640 = 23.6 sq. miles [61 sq. km]

Diablo Canyon (the protected area of the plant itself) sits on about 12 acres. The entire property is around 900 acres.
