Chinese naval escort taskforce proposes marine environmental protection

(China Military Online)

08:16, June 07, 2012

The 11th naval escort taskforce under the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) currently performing its escort mission in the Gulf of Aden and the waters off the Somali coast sent letters of proposal via VHF radio and e-mail on the morning of June 5, the World Environment Day, local time, to the protected ships and passing-by ships to advocate the protection and improvement of the marine environment as well as the collaboration to build a safe and harmonious Gulf of Aden. The letters of proposal have been actively responded by the protected ships as well as the passing-by ships.

According to Liu Rong, internship captain of the "Qingdao" warship, all the escort ships are installed with multiple sets of standardized anti-pollution and pollution-control equipment, such as solid wastes compressors, kitchen wastes disposers, solid refuse incinerators, domestic wastewater vacuum disposers, oiled water treatment equipment and so on. A number of new plans for the control of pollutant emission have also been formulated in order to ensure that the post-treated pollutant discharged from the ships can meet the international standards.

In order to save water, the "Qingdao" warship has adjusted its original three physical trainings a day into a single concentrated training in the afternoon so as to save bath water.

Ni Ming, captain of the "Weishan Lake" supply ship, told reporters that the daily water consumption on the "Weishan Lake" supply ship has dropped significantly. It has been maintained at a lower level for the past two months.
