The 78-meter three-purpose workboat was successfully launched using airbags
At 3:58 pm on March 24, 2012, Tianjin CCCC Bomeike Marine Shipbuilding Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. in Tianjin Binhai New Area successfully launched a 78-meter-long three-purpose workboat using airbag launching technology.
The ship is 78.2 meters in length, 18.5 meters in molded width, 8.0 meters in molded depth, and has a launching weight of more than 2,000 tons. Shandong Changlin Ship Airbag and Ball Leaning Technology Research Center undertook the scheme design and launching operation of the ship. In view of the characteristics of this type of ship, such as large changes in bow and stern lines, excessive weight concentration, and the water heel of the stern being 800mm below the baseline, 20 large-scale and high-strength special airbags produced by Jinan Changlin Airbag Container Factory Co., Ltd. were used, and strict regulations were formulated. The scientific launching process plan ensures the safe and smooth launching of this type of ship. The smooth launch of this type of ship marks a new breakthrough in the field of air bag launching technology for special engineering ships.
