Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I numbered the reactors.

No way firefighting ships can get near enough.

You can't provide some protection from storm surges and tsunamis and remain accessible to waterships.

So, in what may be my last act of "advising", I'll advise you to cut the jargon. -- My old PhD advisor, to me, 26/2/11

Assuming the breakwater is a temporary obstacle that could be removed, and there's no spent fuel in that pool - if that even makes a difference at this point - I make that a distance of around 200m. Which doesn't sound totally impractical.

There's also the advantage of at least some cover from the turbine buildings.

250 m. Plus you need to calculate with more due to the height. I looked around and found no fireboat range above 400 feet.
