The Face of the Future?

For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
Tennyson
Today's wonder is FlexBlue , a concept based on nuclear submarine technology where a small self-contained power plant of 50 to 250 MW could be shipped to the required site and placed on the ocean bed and cabled to shore . Because of the amount of water available reactor meltdown could not happen. Distributed power systems like this make sense as transmission expense is  a large part of  modern electricity system costs , which will be minimised by placing the generator near the load.



 The Greenies will go beserk if this comes to fruition!
