Nuclear Ship Savannah Underway
WVEC brings us news of the world’s first commercial nuclear ship, N/S Savannah.
The Savannah, a historic landmark and the world’s first nuclear-powered cargo and passenger ship, is leaving Virginia waters after 14 years.
Its government caretaker, the U.S. Maritime Administration, announced a contract Tuesday worth at least $588,380 to relocate the famous dinosaur from Norfolk to Canton Marine Terminals in Baltimore.
The sleek, white, 596-foot-long vessel was to leave local waters Wednesday on its way up the Chesapeake Bay.
