Desalination plant with a Chinese military escort warships ready to take a bath
local time at 8:00 on May 3, the fifth of China’s naval escort fleet,” Guangzhou “ship docked in the port of Djibouti for supplies repair
Since December 2008, the Chinese navy has been to the Gulf of Aden off the Somali coast sent 13 5 Fleet escort ships. From the first convoy to enter the order to succeed, a new stage of normalization operation, escort officers and men of work and life also will be new changes continue to occur. This month’s “Gulf of Aden to escort Report” will take you to escort ships approached the officers and men, feel the deep blue of the People’s Navy is moving toward the new generation, from the Indian Ocean on the fresh wind blowing.
meal with vegetables every day can take a bath
stayed on the ship who knows the ship difficult living conditions. Especially during the sea, fresh water, such as expensive oil. Water supply, in addition to Chuishi Ban, the other compartments are rationing supply. Wash sooner or later, as long as broadcast “Now the water supply”, we will be flocking to quasi-wash room waiting. Reason is simple, to late, over point, the water is gone. Difficulties in the sea water, a bath is even harder, 10 days half bath on the wash is not common. Even more interesting is, when his comrades, said bath to shower. Small space ships, large numbers of water is limited, time control, can not help you slowly, only a quick fix.
fifth convoy formation with the Navy prior to departure, I had participated in a special convoy to find comrades learn. Report of the modern warship working and living conditions have greatly changed. However, despite the theories of someone who, thought to be at sea for several months, my heart I did not end. Fleet set sail the day before, saying that the “poor house rich way” mentality, I purchased specifically to Sanya city paper underwear, wet wipes as well as vitamins, honey and some from the sea that can be useful to items.
surprised that after the ship set sail and no water restrictions, a crew of only 24 hours we can take a bath, but also regular supply of hot water. I asked to know, are the ship “water generator” to help busy.
the original, each escort ships are equipped with two desalination plant, capable of producing a daily average of nearly 40 tons of desalinated water to meet the crew bathing, washing, laundry and cleaning to remove the ship other daily domestic use. Cooking, vegetables and drink water all day is to bring the water when sailing, naval sea water has become history.
even more surprised that the troubled years of naval officers and men problem – fresh vegetables, has been largely resolved. Over the past half months later than ten days at sea, it is difficult to eat the vegetables. Today, almost two months with the convoy formation, almost every meal has vegetables, although little weight, narrow range, but in the past is unthinkable things.
few days ago, the author of comprehensive supply ship “Weishan Lake” ship frozen vegetables to see Curry, the starting formation when carrying spinach, lettuce, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, mustard greens still bright green as ever. Logistics department of a naval ship with the Institute of Medicine, said Associate Hou construction, the use of modified atmosphere packaging of fresh new refrigeration technology and scientific management, improve the preservation effect of vegetables, greatly extending the shelf, especially green leafy fresh vegetables made a breakthrough progress, completely rewritten the vessel during the voyage fresh leafy green vegetables difficult, big loss history.
water becomes fresh water, so that soldiers no longer ship to bathe, wash worry; vegetables fresh and modern technology in the ocean logistics application, the naval officers and men to eat a healthy, eat a combat effectiveness.
escort weekend every month there are “ground gas”
“work tomorrow – and rest.” Every Friday and Saturday night, lights-out bed before the ship attendant will broadcast the same content. This means another weekend to.
thousands of miles away from the mainland outside the Gulf of Aden, especially in a tight convoy can enjoy the weekend during the “treatment”, which we did not expect.
escort also during the “weekend”? Many people may think that’s incredible. In fact, the beginning, the soldiers do not dare to believe. The reason is simple, formation of a long sea voyage, the officers and men for a long time in the alert observation, the value of more tension on duty, how can there be time to rest? But now, the fifth fleet escort has completed 10 batches of nearly 200 Chinese and foreign ships of escort missions, although it has repeatedly encountered during the escort fleet suspicious small target of the harassment, in particular, the recent rampant piracy, sea deteriorating security situation However, this system has always insisted on the weekend very well.
this system due to formation of co-ordination arrangements. In order to alleviate the soldiers on duty at sea for a long time value of more fatigue, every weekend, in addition to the value of more personnel on duty, the others take turns to rest, in addition to participate in sports activities, officers and soldiers can wash clothes, to his family call you, you can do point of individual they want to do. Of course, an urgent task immediately into battle.
every weekend, except duty officers and soldiers responsible for navigational watch, the ship can free other people. “Weekend Theater,” “Happy deck”, “leisure music bar”, “sailor House” and a variety of board games, online games and other entertainment places become free men, the ship also combine our hobbies, and set up a “Spring escort PEN “,” Ocean Photographic Society “,” health club “,” Blue Shield Auditorium “, etc., have this love of men can have a go. It is worth mentioning that, “Blue Shield Auditorium” is a completely open platform, a crew who either own their own wishes to participate, you can also volunteered to go onto the stage to talk about. As for the teaching content and methods is flourishing, you can speak their own expertise, you can share with their own legend.
leaving I did not think that the escort officers and men not only as usual over the weekend, as on land, but also on a regular basis by the rest in Hong Kong, with the officers and men of words is called “ground gas.” Once a month, a five-day, April 1 to 5, “Guangzhou” one month after the ship set sail from the Sanya on the Salalah port in Oman for a five-day break. After the “lake” ship, “Weishan Lake” ship by Hong Kong also have a rest.
rest by Hong Kong is the common practice of countries to escort ships. “Guangzhou” ship rest in Salalah Port, in the harbor, “encounter” the rest of India, Japan, UK, USA, Korea and other countries to escort ships. During the rest by Hong Kong, in addition to material supplies and equipment maintenance, but also the collective organization of officers and men to go shopping, sightseeing.
of course, must not be affected because the rest escort. To ensure that escort mission continued, uninterrupted, the Chinese navy escort took turns formation by the rest of the way to Hong Kong, that is, each arranged by the Hong Kong warship rest, the other two ships according to plan responsible for the escort mission.
are in the local area network point of view is not lonely sea world
last as long as a vessel to sea, and land is basically cut off. Today, despite the officers and soldiers escort the body in the ocean the ocean, but the information is not blocked. They not only with their comrades, relatives and friends on the phone, but also through newspapers, radio, TV reception and access to national information and world events.
shore-ship navy to escort ships through the work of one political platform to transmit programs, not only can see the electronic version of the day outside the military newspaper, you can also listen to watch the Central People’s Broadcasting Station, China Central Television’s various news programs, there are men like basketball, football. Shore-ship one day political work platform of information sent to the ship, not only large and up to date, and rich in content, covering current affairs, military, education, technology, culture, sports and other categories.
author of “Guangzhou” ship learned that the ship has three dedicated computer rooms, equipped with 70 desktop computers and notebook computers, local area network directly to the officers and men live in cabin, crew as long as Turn on the computer, go abroad to the cabin you can browse the latest information at home and abroad.
escort fleet political commissar, deputy director of the Political Department of the South China Sea Fleet, Chen Yan believes that the Navy would “supply the information into the ocean protection areas, not only reflects the rapid development of modern technology, but also thanks to the new era of political work in the Navy continuous innovation and development, he said, “shore-ship one” platform for political work and political work to plug in a traditional information technology wing, escort officers and men not only facilitate the timely and efficient access to information, makes them the same frequency pulse resonant with the motherland and the people .
4 月 14 日 Yushu earthquake occurred after the formation of the task is performing escort officers and men, the first time in various forms have expressed condolences to the people of disaster areas, expressed condolences to the victims compatriots, some officers and men also called to the rear, your family and friends to their donations.
English into fashion with distinctive physical exercise
morning and evening hours, the convoy formation of Ge Jian, can always see the escort officers to learn to use English scene, Captain English command, issued in English within the cabin of the daily value of deploying a password. English use has become a fashion to escort the officers and men.
why use English in convoy formation become fashionable? The answer is simple, because the English and escort officers and men of work and life are inseparable. formation of temporary party party in accordance with the instructions of the Navy, the level of English conversation training and assessment as one of the officers and men escort of important content. requires commanders at all levels, Ge Jian captain in command issued a password, control vessels to be bilingual to a value through a more official English and Chinese languages ??and foreign ships to be escorted to send commands.
warship as the flow of land, is to demonstrate the importance of national image window, sailors in foreign exchange envoys, without a good foundation and foreign language skills, it would not be better to complete the task. Now, “to improve their English escort is to raise the level of capacity “has become the consensus of the officers and men escort.
in order for everyone to create a good learning atmosphere, formation and down like a lot of ideas in the fleet command center, day shift, the commander of the formation Zhang pomelo, political commissar Chen Yan, organizational learning should take the lead in the “Guangzhou” ship, from the morning to get up, eating, training, duty duty, to go to bed at night, all with bilingual broadcasting. “lake” a crew of English proficiency based on the actual ship, offers English classes and strengthen the use of foundation classes, the organization focused on teaching time every day. “Weishan Lake” opened on the ship in the English use of the LAN column, making the English language electronic magazine.
by the previous stage learning, English language proficiency of officers and men have a significantly improved, especially when the first real break by the Hong Kong experience some changes: in communicating with foreigners, not only dare to communicate in English, and performed more than in the past calm, confident.
addition to English use, physical exercise is compulsory escort officers and men of the day. get up every afternoon, the ship will be broadcast declared: “at work, the module training, physical exercise. “The physical exercise as an important training content, and professional training on the same position, showing that formation leading this very seriously.
small space ship, space for officers and men more physical exercise is very limited To this end, the upper and lower formation brainstorming, come up with a lot of really good ideas, some of them to become the Gulf of Aden on the scene, such as the “lake” innovations of their own officers and men of the “escort aerobics”, “Guangzhou” spontaneous ship crew formation of the “health club”, “Weishan Lake” ship “Ocean Blue game”, etc. In addition, daily 16:30 to 5:30, Ge Jian became the officers and soldiers after the helicopter platform deck a good place for physical exercise take collective and free combination, and the use of the higher allotment from the purchase of equipment, organization-duty personnel to focus on physical exercise for one hour a day, 50 push-ups, 200 jumping rope, 10 20 m shuttle run, men’s gymnastics will be broadcast training subjects (Cao Jinping Cao Haihua)
