New attitude and new sailing -- the "Huatuo" ship of West China Offshore Engineering officially sailed in 2022
At 10:00 a.m. on April 20, 2022, accompanied by the loud whistle, the "Huatuo" ship of West China Offshore Engineering left the wharf of Jingjiang Xinrong shipyard and started a new journey!
"Huatuo" (formerly known as "Princess Mona") is a major cargo ship under West China Offshore Engineering Co., Ltd., with a total length of 173.83 meters, a shape width of 32.20 meters and a shape depth of 10.50 meters. It has rich transportation experience. It has carried the largest single module of 5000t, and completed major cargo transportation projects in Bohai Sea, Yellow Sea, East China Sea and South China Sea, which has been highly praised by the owner. In order to actively respond to the call of the country's "powerful country in science and technology and marine power", West China Offshore Engineering undertook the applicability transformation of the test ship and the installation and coordination of the test equipment of the deep-sea polymetallic nodule mining test project in the 13th five year plan. As the test mother ship, the "Huatuo" ship cooperated well to complete various sea test tasks in 2021.
"Huatuo" has completed the restoration and transformation of the deck cargo ship. This time, it will sail to Zhuhai to undertake the module transportation project of CNOOC platform. As the first project of "Huatuo" in 2022, the company has given great support to it. After receiving the project instruction, the crew members quickly organized a plan. In the face of the strict control of the epidemic and the blockade period, they overcame many difficulties, united as one, cooperated closely, worked hard day and night to prepare relevant materials and spare parts, tested and maintained the main and auxiliary equipment, and made full preparations for the subsequent smooth development of the project.
The eyes have stars and the sea, and the heart has flowers like brocade. You live up to your youth and seize the day. I wish the "Huatuo wheel" set sail, smooth sailing, meet new tasks with a new attitude and move towards a new chapter with a new state!
