Dong Fang Hong 2
(DFH-2) marine comprehensive survey ship

The 3,500-ton "Dongfanghong 2" is an "elderly" class survey ship of Ocean University of China. The total voyage has already exceeded 400,000 nautical miles. It has successfully completed the sea teaching internship and the marine environment. Comprehensive investigation tasks such as ocean hydrology, marine meteorology, marine geology, marine biology, ocean chemistry, and ocean acoustics.

The Dongfanghong 2 Marine Integrated Survey Ship was part of China Ocean University. It was the most advanced marine comprehensive research ship in China. It is an important practice base for students from China Ocean University, and was the most advanced integrated marine mobile laboratory in China. The ship had a total of 15 laboratories, which can provide comprehensive surveys and partial surveys of marine subjects such as physical oceans, marine atmosphere, marine chemistry, marine biology, marine geology and marine geophysics, and can simultaneously conduct analytical research and research in which marine professionals play an important role.

The Dongfanghong 2 Marine Integrated Survey Vessel was built by the State Planning Commission of the People's Republic of China, the Ministry of Finance of the People's Republic of China, the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China and the local government. It was officially put into use in January 1996. One of the most advanced marine comprehensive survey vessels in the country. There are 15 different types of laboratories in the whole ship, with a total area of 325 square meters and a deck working area of 330 square meters. The ship's institutional layout is suitable for multidisciplinary intersections, and the main core equipment is mature products manufactured and used in developed countries. The ship's navigation support equipment is reliable and safe, simple in operation and management, easy to maintain and repair, economical and practical, and highly mobile. The equipment and equipment of nearly 20 million yuan have been added one after another, which has been able to meet the requirements of the comprehensive survey of the same voyage of various disciplines, and the ship performance has reached the advanced level of international similar survey ships.

As of August 1, 2011, the Dongfanghong 2 Marine Integrated Survey Ship had sailed for more than 300,000 nautical miles (equivalent to 14 laps around the equator) in the past 15 years. The trajectories are all over the Bohai Sea, the Yellow Sea, the East China Sea, the South China Sea and the Northwest. In the Pacific Ocean, it has undertaken comprehensive maritime voyage missions of more than 100 national-level major research projects, such as the National Basic Research Development Plan (973), the National High-Tech Development Plan (863), and the National Natural Science Major Fund Project.

The structure is suitable for multidisciplinary crossover. The main core equipments are mature products manufactured and used in developed countries: 8M332 medium-speed diesel engines from two German MAK companies, two-machine parallel or bicycle running adjustable pitch propeller output, reaching infinitely variable speed; equipped with American Carter 3 Generator set, integrated navigation and positioning system of American Sperry company; communication system and satellite B station of Furuno Company of Japan; central air conditioning system of the Netherlands; the ship's navigation support equipment is reliable and safe, easy to operate and manage, easy to maintain and repair, economical and practical, The maneuverability is strong, and the ship's performance has reached the advanced level of international similar survey ships.

In recent years, the Oriental Red 2 marine integrated survey vessel has added nearly 20 million yuan of instruments and equipment to meet the requirements of the comprehensive survey of the same voyage in various disciplines. Currently equipped marine survey instruments are: FSI self-contained ICTD, Seabird 911 Plus direct-reading CTD, RDI OS-75K phased array shipborne ADCP, 150K ADCP, CAP 6600 shallow profiler, SM 2000 200K multi-beam system , SEABEAM 1050 50K multi-beam system, Young conventional meteorological instrument, Trimble beacon / satellite differential GPS, DGPS MAX beacon / satellite differential GPS, Octans fiber optic ship attitude sensor, 6000 m hydrodynamic winch, 3000 m bio winch, 6000 m geological winch Etc. The equipment of the above-mentioned instruments and equipment provides basic technical support for the comprehensive teaching of the Dongfanghong 2 ship engaged in marine teaching practice and marine environment, marine hydrology, marine meteorology, marine geology, marine biology, marine chemistry, and ocean acoustics.

The main task of the Dongfanghong 2 Ship Laboratory is to undertake 9 classes of schools, 18 sea-related majors, and more than 600 oceanographical sea practice teaching tasks per year. At the same time, it undertakes or cooperates with scientists and research groups to conduct marine surveys and research on physical oceans, marine meteorology, ocean physics, ocean chemistry, marine geology, marine biology, and ocean remote sensing.

In recent years, the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Education, and the State Oceanic Administration have increased their investment in marine scientific investigations. The school party committee and administrative leaders have attached great importance to the construction of the Dongfanghong 2 ship. Currently, the school is actively applying to transform the Dongfanghong 2 ship into The national public basic experimental platform, in order to give full play to the advantages of the current national comprehensive research of the ship, as an opportunity to explore the reform of the operation and management system of the marine survey ship, form an open, public and sharing mechanism, and promote the development of marine scientific research in China.
