    Background: The first nuclear merchant ship arrived to-day in Antwerp. It is the American cargo "SAVANNAH": 116 meters long, 24 meters wide and weighing 21.800 Ton. The jet-turbines develop a power of 22.000 HP and the ship reaches a speed of 25 knots. This atomic cargo can sail during three tears on the same nuclear batteries. Over the same time a steamship would have used 90.000 ton of fuel oil.

    This ship shows the world that the nuclear powered can be an instrument of peace and a blessing for the humanity.
