During its berth, the "Huangshan" warship will receive equipment overhaul and logistic supply and its officers and men will be organized in batches for visits to learn local history, culture and customs. When the "Huangshan" ship is taking a rest, the "Hengyang" ship of the 13th Chinese naval escort taskforce is taking over the 533rd escort mission.
