Based on research the investigation of refuelling of typical land-based nuclear power plant and refuelling of each maritime nuclear power unit, the necessary to develop floating nuclear plant and maritime refuelling is analysed. Then this paper has compared the advantages and difficulties faced for maritime refuelling technology, and some solutions are also presented to solve the difficulties. Finally, based on refuelling of the land-based nuclear power plant and the Lomonosov floating nuclear power plant, this paper has proposed two achievable overall design schemes of maritime refuelling.
