Energy for ships

The nuclear fuels are used to produce energy in big ships and submarines. The energy provided by the nuclear motors is used both to activate the propellers and all the other services on board. In the picture you can see the American nuclear aircraft carrier “Dwight D. Eisenhower”, berthed in the navy base of Norfolk in Virginia (United States). (copyright CORBIS)
