"Innovation II" / Chuang Xin-2
estuary shallow water scientific research ship

The 300T scientific research ship “INNOVATION (CHUANGXIN) 2” was built by Jinglu Ship Industry Co., Ltd for Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences by JLS was delivered successfully in the morning on 30th Nov, 2017. After the construction of “INNOVATION(CHUANGXIN) 1”, “INNOVATION(CHUANGXIN) 2” is the second scientific research ship which was built for Yantai Institute of Coastal Zone Research of Chinese Academy of Sciences. She will fulfill her mission and provide a safe and convenient platform for the work of Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

"Chuang Xin 2" total length of 42.7 m, depth 3.8 m, type 8.5 meters wide, the design load displacement of 450.0 tons, the ship will revolve around research requirements estuary shallow waters and offshore zones, carry out within the scope of ocean dynamic environment, geological environment, ecology comprehensive observation of the marine environment and fishery resources, environment, detection and sampling (including trawl fishery resources) and on-site analysis and so on. Jing Lu shipping industry will live up the expectations, at the conclusion of "innovation a" foundation built on lessons learned, careful organization and construction, to ensure that "innovation two" high quality and efficient delivery to the owner.

On November 30th, the “Innovation II” 300-ton estuarine shallow-water scientific research vessel of the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences was officially delivered in Penglai, Shandong Province. The vessel will focus on supporting the ecological environment observation and field simulation research of the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent north and south sea areas. The heads of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Yantai City, Penglai City, and the units and departments of the project legal entity, contractor and brother institution attended the handover ceremony.

In 2015, the Marine Science Research Fleet of the Chinese Academy of Sciences officially started construction. With the delivery of “Innovation II”, there are already 10 scientific research vessels in the four series of “Science”, “Experiment”, “Innovation” and “Exploration”. It has built a world-class marine equipment system consisting of the "Discovery" cable-controlled unmanned submersible, the "Exploration" unmanned submersible, and the "Sea Wing" series of water gliders, which are played in the field of marine exploration research in China.

The “Innovation II” was built by Penglai Zhongbai Jinglu Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. It is a small marine scientific research vessel suitable for the shallow water area and offshore area near the Yangtze River estuary. The ship is equipped with conventional hydrological and biological winches and professional signals. The transmission winch has the ability to observe and sample marine organisms, ecology, environment and chemical elements in the estuary and offshore shallow waters, and has the observation and sampling capabilities of other disciplines such as hydrology, geology and meteorology. At the same time, the "Innovation II" scientific research vessel also equipped the fishing net equipment for fishery resources survey, with basic fishery resources investigation capabilities; equipped with dry laboratories and wet laboratories, with simple biological and chemical sample processing and Analytical capabilities; configuration of shipborne positioning systems, marine radar and satellite communications equipment.

The adjacent waters of the Yangtze River estuary has always been a hotspot for marine ecology research. However, there are no long-term observing stations in the adjacent waters of the Yangtze River estuary. Most of the observation data comes from maritime surveys for specific scientific problems, and it is difficult to achieve real-time, long-term, continuous Observations and access to data are also difficult to achieve open sharing. As an important observation platform for the Yangtze River Estuary Ecological Station, the “Innovation II” scientific research vessel will be used for comprehensive investigation of marine meteorology, chemistry, biology, geology, environment and hydrology in the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent sea areas and important ecological environment. The long-term observation of the elements will play a positive role in supporting the evolution of ecosystems in the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters.

"Innovation II" successful completion of the 2018 annual "scientific experimental study investigated the Yangtze River estuary," the inaugural mission, the successful berthing IOCAS west coast of Qingdao New research vessel wharf. On March 2nd, the “Innovation II” was launched on the maiden voyage, and the scientific research was carried out jointly with the “Science 3” round. The Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters were built around the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters with complex dynamic environment and fragile ecosystem. The subject of material transport and its ecological and environmental effects is scientifically investigated. Voyage divided into two segments, . 3 dated 2 Day to 18 is day of the first leg, the majority of jobs in the Yangtze sea leg, completed . 3 fracture surfaces 26 is th CTD and box dredging stations; . 3 dated . 19 Day After docking the Shenjiamen Haijian Detachment Wharf, after a short break, replenishment, and replacement of some of the team members , they started the second-segment expedition on March 21 , and completed a total of 20 CTDs and boxes on the second segment. Type of mud mining station. The basic data obtained by voyages provide important data support for elucidating the long-term changes and mechanisms of the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters under the influence of human activities and global climate change.

"Innovation II" round in 2017 Nian 11 Yue 30 officially put into use is a comprehensive research ship for small marine science shallow waters near the mouth of the Yangtze River estuary and offshore areas. The “Innovation II” of this voyage has fully utilized the characteristics of the estuary shallow-water scientific research ship with flexible power and capability. Its use indicates that the Institute of Oceanology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences has initially established the “Science” and “Science No.3”. The comprehensive marine scientific research fleet consisting of various types of ships, such as “Innovation II” and “Seagull”, has the ability to fully cover the estuary, offshore and deep sea ocean, and can provide more professional and individuality for the sea scientific research.

On 08 October 2018, the "Innovation II" scientific research vessel set sail from Qingdao's parent port to carry out the autumn voyage survey mission of the 2018 "Changjiang Estuary Scientific Research Experimental Research" shared voyage plan of the National Natural Science Foundation of China. This voyage targets the scientific theme of the “transportation of the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters and its ecological and environmental effects” in the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters with complex dynamic environments and fragile ecosystems, using Science No.3 and Innovate the No. 2 scientific research ship, organize the implementation of scientific research experiments in the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent seas to share the voyages, investigate the hydrodynamic processes, material transport and sedimentary characteristics of the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent sea areas, biogeochemical processes of important source elements, Conduct comprehensive scientific investigations on marine pollution and its ecological effects, biodiversity and ecosystems, obtain basic observational data, support research on key scientific issues, and clarify long-term changes in the Yangtze River estuary and its adjacent waters under the influence of human activities and global changes. And the mechanism provides the underlying data. This voyage was expected to return to Qingdao's home port on October 19.
