Mar 04, 2020

After the Yuanwang No. 6 ship successfully completed its ship power trial in the East China Sea, it docked at the dock of the China Satellite Maritime Survey and Control Department on the 17th, marking the successful completion of the first major revision of the ship in 9 months.

During the sea trial, Yuanwang No. 6 focused on ship equipment such as main engine, steering gear, windlass, etc., and carried out a number of comprehensive tests to distinguish lighting, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems. The ship's power and hull structure passed the Yangtze River narrow channel navigation and complex sea conditions. The test is that the power output is strong, the equipment is stable, and the system is in good condition.

Yuanwang 6 is China's third-generation space-based ocean-going survey ship. It was officially delivered to the China Satellite Maritime Survey and Control Department on July 8, 2008. According to the usual practice, ocean-going survey ships undergo a major revision every 10 years. Yuanwang No. 6 ships will be stationed at Shanghai Jiangnan Shipyard on April 28, 2019.

According to the relevant person in charge of the China Satellite Maritime Survey and Control Department, this major revision adopted a new supervision and management model. Three dock repairs, one ship tilt test, and one mooring test have been conducted. Comprehensive and thorough. More than 10 large antennas have been installed on board, and more than 110 new equipment have been added. The overall capability of measurement and control has been greatly enhanced.

It is understood that the Yuanwang No. 6 ship will sail again after a short break at the port, and carry out equipment accuracy assessment and comprehensive sea school flight as planned, laying a solid foundation for subsequent high-density offshore measurement and control tasks.
