Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding has launched Shen Hai 01 (“Deep Sea 01”), a new emergency response vessel ordered by the China Maritime Safety Administration (CMSA).
The 78- by 12-metre vessel will be operated primarily as a pollution response command ship and is designed for use even in incidents involving dangerous gases at sea.
Shen Hai 01 will be the first Chinese-flagged government vessel with a battery hybrid propulsion system. It is now undergoing final preparations prior to delivery and commissioning into service.
