I hadn’t taken many pictures today when we went past this power station. I couldn’t work or whether it was nuclear or conventional, as it had no cooling towers but no tell tale signs of nuclear either.
There was a sign proudly displaying the fact it had been in production for 40 years. I wondered if it was one of the nuclear stations producing weapons grade plutonium as a bi-product, a left over from the cold war. Either way it doesn’t matter. It was a fairly impressive place and I’m glad we passed it.
I have to say I’m a little disappointed we didn’t find an abandoned nuclear submarine in Vladivostok. We haven’t seen any abandoned tanks either, and no-one has offered me a Kalashnikov assault rifle yet. As far as stereotypes go, Russia is breaking them all so far.
Hi, there are no nuclear power plants in the area where you’re travelling, so this one is just one of many just common power plants burning charcoal/gas. To see nuclear submarines you needed to go to the city of Bolshoy Kamen’. 🙂
