What Could Go Wrong With Floating Nuclear Power Plants?

China may be developing a fleet of up to 20

Apparently, China may be developing as many as 20 floating nuclear power stations that would be used for things like providing electricity for oil platforms. "The development of nuclear power platforms is a burgeoning trend," a director of the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation told the Communist Parties Global Times. "The exact number of plants that we will build depends on the market demand. Judging by various factors, the demand is pretty strong." If nothing else, whatever results from nuclear power stations floating around the ocean could potentially lead to a few really mediocre action movies, assuming that movies still exist.
