Your scale is off a bit. The Fukishima reactors were 484 MW to 1.1GW. Diablo Canyon, a fairly "new" (and now unused) Nuclear reactor setup in California were both units under 1.2GW. The reactors on the "Ford" class aircraft carriers are reported to produce about 700MW each.

Arg, I can't believe I brain-fumbled that. I meant to type GW. Wish I could still edit.

Yes, it's 1-2 orders of magnitude.
