Abstract : The purpose of this report is to present the state-of-the-art with regard to nuclear power technology for use as the primary energy source in a 20,000-kwe (net) power plant mounted on a non-self-propelled barge. In order to evaluate the economic feasibility of the nuclear power plant, the comparable cost for conventional fossil-fuel-fired plant is also presented. This report includes descriptions of the advanced and present-day reactor concepts together with conceptual drawings, construction cost estimates, design and construction schedule, and estimates of annual fuel, operating and maintenance costs.
