Construction Begins for Taiwanese Navy Rescue Ship

The Ministry of National Defense commissioned Taiwan International Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. to build a navy “new type of rescue ship”. On August 4, 110, at auspicious morning, the groundbreaking ceremony was held at Taiwan Shipping Company Kaohsiung Plant. Commander General Liu Zhibin co-chaired. The construction project was signed on December 4, 109, and the contract was due on August 4, 112, with a total price of 2.975 billion yuan. The project completed the first phase (start-up) work report on July 16, 110, and the start-up conditions will be met after the completion of the ground-breaking ceremony today. It is expected that the second phase of the project will be applied for more than NT$200 million, which will inject revenue for Taiwan Shipbuilding. .

The new type of rescue ship (ARS, Auxiliary Rescue and Salvage ship) is an important naval shipbuilding plan, and it is also a target-type project in the government’s implementation of the “national shipbuilding” policy. The total length is 87 meters, the maximum mold width is 15.5 meters, the full-load displacement is 3,250 tons, and the full-load ship speed is 18 knots. Its characteristic is that the electric propulsion system is equipped with a reducer and a variable pitch vehicle blade (CPP), and is equipped with a dynamic positioning system, with auxiliary propulsion devices such as bow and stern thrusters and telescopic omnidirectional thrusters. It is also special for this type of ship. The task is to load a diving operation system, an underwater unmanned vehicle (ROV) and a release and recovery system. The main tasks are towing, rescue and underwater operations. It is equipped with an advanced rescue system, a diving operation system (diving bell) with a depth of 100 meters, and an underwater remote control vehicle system (ROV) that can operate at a depth of 500 meters. ), will improve the navy’s rescue energy. After the completion of the new type of rescue ship, it has the characteristics of fast speed, good mobility, high automatic operation ability, and large towing force. It can perform ship rescue, towing and other tasks, and is not easily restricted by factors such as operational safety and wind, which is beneficial to the achievement of rescue tasks.

The ship is equipped with a set of integrated station management system (IPMS), including integrated propulsion, power and other modules equipped with alarm, monitoring and control functions, and is equipped with a set of on-board training mode modules (OBT) to provide shipboard personnel with familiarity with IPMS operations Training. It is worth mentioning that the ship’s internal and external communication integration system (ICS) and the entire ship’s information communication network system will be planned, designed and constructed by the shipyard, using a three-stage dual-ring optical fiber backbone network architecture design, with network management functions, and The integrated bridge management system (IBS) commissioned by the Chinese Academy of Sciences establishes relevant interface requirements for integration.

In order to effectively implement construction management and related warranty responsibilities after ship delivery, it provides a complete maintenance history record, and also introduces a product life-cycle management system, integrates existing management information, and prepares for the “integration of build and repair” of the national ship. Taiwanese shipping companies are duty-bound to promote domestic employment and economic development through the National Shipbuilding Project, and to steadily promote the national shipbuilding policy and defend national sovereignty. Taiwanese shipping companies must uphold the spirit of building factories and act as an important promoter of the government’s shipbuilding industry localization policy.
