NPP Cross-section

Post by RTD Laboratories » Mon Feb 04, 2019 11:36 pm

So I was looking through my older folders and came across this one, figured I'll share it here as well.

It's a render I did a well over a year ago, when I was in tech school. We had to write a report on electricity generation, and could choose one of the means of generation to write about. I picked nuclear because it was the one I liked the most (one of the best options we currently have imo, if handeled the right way) and there was a lot to write about.

As a part of the report I wanted to include a cross-section of a NPP, but didn't feel like just taking one online, so having a few weeks to spare I made my own. I was aiming for a more "realistic" look for the interior, and left the outdoor parts stylized so they wouldn't be distracting. So yeah, that's bout it, and make sure to view the pic in full res :D

Oh, and the ammount of searches on google about the inner workings of the NPP has probably landed me on some kind of watchlist as well :lol:

Very good schematic, should be published :rspkt:
Of course, the coincidence of the alignment of the axis of the reactor with the axis of the turbines has a reason :roll:

This will look good in my "curriculum vitae": "Heterodox truck driver at TNT/FedEx"
