    If this was 2 weeks ago, probably those parts have already been assembled. Perhabs already part of that module we saw in the recent aerial photos.

    Wrong thread.

    Don’t think they are trying to hide anything, it’s how the carrier is built, the lay out of the various compartment and other equipment, that they want hidden from prying eyes. Once in the dry dock, the fitting of the catapult just like in US carrier construction would be covered over.

    From Dafengcao blog. I guess this will be the test bed for nuclear power carrier
    A bidding announcement of nuclear powered experimental ship platform was released yesterday by CGNPC to build a ship with dimensions of 152m(length)×30m(beam)×18m(moulded depth), draught 8.32m, displacement 30 000 tonnes, powered by 2×25MW PWRs. http://www.shipoe.com/news/show-25408.html …

    The above document says the thermal power of the two rectors are 200MW.

    The maximum power of the Nimitz class, according to Wiki, is 190MW:

    "Instead of the gas turbines or diesel-electric systems used for propulsion on many modern warships, the carriers use two A4W pressurized water reactors which drive four propeller shafts and can produce a maximum speed of over 30 knots (56 km/h) and maximum power of around 260,000 shp (190 MW). As a result of the use of nuclear power, the ships are capable of operating for over 20 years without refueling and are predicted to have a service life of over 50 years."

    In *this* Wiki-article each A4W reactor of a Nimitz Class carrier has 550 MW.
    In *this* Wiki-article each A1B reactor of a Ford Class carrier has 700 MW.

    25 MW, even with two reactors, is kind of weak for a carrier. Even the CdG has two 150 MWt reactors.
    The Russian Arktika icebreaker (Project 2220) has two 175 MWt reactors and is supposed to displace 33540 tonnes.

    China has several SMR projects which should have the required generation capacity.

    I dont think that this belong in the 002 thread since its widespread knowledgment that 002 wont have nuclear propulsion. Better to place it in the PLAN breaking news thread, or even start a 003 thread, IMO.

    It is certainly not for any aircraft carrier. It is a ship of only 30,000 tonne at 11.5 knots. It is almost certain it is the ice breaker or some supply ship.
