Pros of Nuclear Propulsion:

Pros of Nuclear Propulsion Increased endurance over fossil fuel ships, i.e increased cruising range ( upto 20700 nautical miles ) Huge savings in man power, transportation, handling and storing of fuel In naval ships, this is helpful.. No need of frequent refueling in warfront N0t dependent on air for combustion Savings in ship fuel weight can be diverted to other useful things like fuel storage for aircraft in aircraft carrier No air pollution No need of frequent ballasting Cargo/fuel weight ratio is high In cargo ships, food stuffs can be sterilized using gamma radiation from plant

Cons of Nuclear Propulsion:

Cons of Nuclear Propulsion Large shielding is required Construction and maintenance costs are high Special training for operators are needed In case of accident or leak, operators and nature will be adversely affected Due to above factors, it is 50% more expensive than fossil fuel propulsion
