(ANSA) – GENOA, 09 JUN – “We are working to have in 2025 the first prototype of a naval nuclear engine with advanced reactor technology that has a series of advantages, especially in the safety field. We can install a reactor inside a ship with a series of defenses so that even in the event of an accident everything remains enclosed inside the ship, guaranteeing safety on board and at sea even in the event of the worst accident “. This was explained by Giulio Gennaro, chief technical officer of Core Power, a company that deals with advanced nuclear technology for the maritime transport sector and industry, speaking in connection with the forum ‘The new horizons of energy. Shipping and the need to adapt to the international scenario ‘. A novelty that could be interesting for the future. “Nuclear is one of the technologies we are monitoring – comments Massimo Debenedetti, vice president for research and innovation at Fincantieri -. From our point of view it will see easier application, in the military world, where it is already applied in many countries, in that of passenger ships we will have to overcome a series of opinions that are dated and based above all on a second generation technology while we are thinking about that of the fourth “.
