Gulf of Aden, leaving them to fulfill their mission of glorious track.
every successful exploration, the Chinese Navy to “Deep Blue” step forward
2009 年 2 21, in the “micro-Lake” ship successfully docked at the port of Aden in Yemen, for three days and two nights to complete the commercial model in accordance with several thousand tons of oil supplies, fresh water and the main non-staple food task, I still do not fly Jun bottom of my heart.
the same three days and two nights in December 26, 2008 before departure, “Weishan Lake” ship was loaded over 10,000 tons of supplies, but for the Chinese Navy commissioned by the local agent of COSCO Group, the specific procurement, packaging, transportation of materials, whether provided by the Hong Kong deadlines supply, which includes “Weishan Lake”, including Chinese naval ships have never encountered problems.
hard, going to try. Port can not directly raise freshwater, the soldiers will be taken one by one barrel of fresh water to the ship; fresh vegetables in Baitian Lie-day exposure will soon be under dehydration, the soldiers will adjust to the night carrying vegetables; Arabic script materials marked effect classification of storage, the soldiers on the material affixed to each one a Chinese mark … … a problem, the efforts of the officers and men resolved, “Weishan Lake” ship was finally completed before departure materials supply.

“Weishan Lake” ship fuel squad leader Xu Liping aviation sector did not expect, he and fellow-ship operations aviation kerosene supply, even the Chinese navy to fill a technology gap.
aviation kerosene burning low volatile, it will spark an explosion hit, which supplies high security requirements, after “Weishan Lake” ship ship ship-borne helicopters only flew in the battle when the ship, through a dedicated pipeline filling.
11 years has been engaged in supply of aviation kerosene Xu Liping know, helicopter landing frequent refueling, is not only a waste of fuel, and increased flight risk. They repeated the equipment based on the bold argument put forward: “to carry out ship jet fuel supply.”
2 18, this idea became a reality. “Weishan Lake” ship success of “Wuhan” ship, “sea” ships to implement a jet fuel supply, and also created a new record for the Chinese navy.

“the situation was very serious and if the first 4 sets of air-conditioning is broken again, even if the officers and men can live fifty or sixty degrees Celsius heat the cabin, the ship’s electronic equipment and also carry live ammunition. “Xiaoxin Bin said.
repair, day and night to repair. Xiaoxin Bin and technical staff together, removed two large air-conditioning parts failure, an emergency assembly of an air conditioner, make sure the ship always has an air conditioner spare. At the same time, they coordinate domestic transportation from China to the merchant a new motor. 1.5 ton motor in the past, dock cranes hanging from the ship to the cabin roof, but this time, the soldiers hold the motor and body with both hands, step one stop to move the 4 floors, installed air-conditioning unit compartment .
the same test, and 10 times the supply under the large waves sailing, there are 25 separate batches to escort merchant ships, as well as for three five crew members of merchant emergency treatment … …
