Firm developing maritime nuclear power plant, its submersible to plumb the depths

China has begun to upgrade the design of its first-ever floating nuclear demonstration platform and is nearly finishing the building of a new manned submersible capable of reaching the majority of seabeds in the world, said China Shipbuilding Industry Corp, the primary contractor for the country's navy.

A floating nuclear platform is a maritime nuclear power station. The technology can be installed in vessels and provide a stable source of electricity to oil rigs or remote areas such as the South China Sea. It can also provide power to offshore engineering ships, desalination ships or projects.
