This is the route it supposedly took: "The Akademik Lomonosov on 23rd August, 2019 set out of the Kola Bay after more than a year of preparations in Murmansk. Towed by icebreaker Dikson and accompanied by support ships Yasnyy and Kapitan Martyshkin, the floating power plant had course for the Barents Sea and subsequently made it through the Kara Sea and Laptev Sea. The voyage from Murmansk to Pevek is about 4,700 km long."
The original route was supposed to go through the Baltic Sea, then north to the Arctic. It was supposed to arrive in early September. They had originally planned to load the nuclear fuel while it was still docked at St. Petersburg where it was built, but Greenpeace in Russia, who called it "Chernobyl on Ice filed a petition with thousands of signatures against that plan, and so the plan was changed and the fuel was not supposed to be put into the plant until it docked at its destiny. According to one article, they were going to turn it on this fall, but I haven't been able to locate anything that says that has occurred yet. It's supposed to be replacing two permanent plants that are being shut down.

Was it in the White Sea?
Probably white water. I wonder if its development corporation?
