A second large-scale, national-producing cruise ship was officially launched at the China Ship Group Overseas High Bridge Shipbuilding Limited.
The second large, national-producing cruiser is officially operating in Shanghai.
On 8 August, the journalist The PaperSmart (www.thepaper.cn) obtained the above information from the Shanghai Shipbuilding Factory, which marked the initial mastery of the Chinese ship industry of the key core technology for the design and construction of large cruise ships, which has since entered the “double-wheel” construction era, with the production of large domestic cruises for quantification and serialization. Large cruises can directly reflect a country’s capacity to build equipment and a combination of science and technology. Full-scale promotion of large cruise design is a landmark project to upgrade China’s ship industry and upgrade China’s global reach. On 18 October 2019, China's first large cruise ship (H1508) officially began its construction phase, and the Chinese ship industry took a solid step forward in its journey to “take the crown with the brightest eyes”, and the project is proceeding in an orderly and planned manner. With the combined command of the China Ship Group and the strong support of the project partners Carnival and Fencantini, the Outer High Bridge built ships through the introduction of digestive and autonomous scientific and technological innovations, successively carrying out cruise design, construction and project management on ships H1508, and a series of scientific and technological innovations. In order to meet the SOLAS 2020 module breakability requirement, the H1509 vessel was extended by 17.4 metres from the H1508 vessel, with a total hull of 341 metres and a 37.2 metres wide and a gross tonnage of about 142,000 metres, designed to eat 8.17 metres of water, maximum 8.4 metres of water, maximum speed of 22.7 nautical miles/hour, passenger cabins of 2144, 19 more than the first-made vessel. The ship is also equipped with large, 16-story upper-building and recreational areas, with large performing centres, large restaurants, special restaurants, bars, cafés, shopping malls, art corridors, children's centres, SPAs and water parks, which provide for all living and recreational needs of passengers. The design construction cycle for the second large-scale, domestic cruiser H1509 has been compressed for a full six-month period, compared to the first-made cruise ship, and the detailed design of the H1509 ship is now about 40 per cent complete, with the full start of work on the production model balance and structural production designs. == sync, corrected by elderman == @elder_man
