The domestic large cruise ship has entered the era of “two-wheel” construction, and the second domestic large cruise ship officially started

Today (August 8), the second domestic large cruise ship officially started construction in Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. Entering the era of “two-wheel” construction, the mass and serial construction of domestic large cruise ships is just around the corner.

The second domestic large cruise ship has a total length of 341 meters, a width of 37.2 meters, a gross tonnage of about 142,000, a design draft of 8.17 meters, a maximum draft of 8.4 meters, a maximum speed of 22.7 knots, and 2,144 passenger cabins. Shipbuilding increased by 19. At the same time, in order to meet the emission regulations of the International Maritime Organization, two new desulfurization towers and SCR systems have been added. It is a green and environmentally friendly cruise ship. The ship is also equipped with a huge superstructure living and entertainment area of ​​up to 16 floors, with a large performing arts center, large restaurants, specialty restaurants, bars, cafes, shopping plazas, art corridors, children’s centers, SPA, water parks and other rich leisure and entertainment Facilities can meet all the living and entertainment needs of passengers.

In order to implement and promote the domestic large-scale cruise project, China State Shipbuilding Corporation and the world’s leading engineering software R&D companies and suppliers jointly developed the “three-dimensional integration” design software, which was successfully applied throughout the ship, becoming the world’s first.

Compared with the first cruise ship, the design and construction period of the second domestic large cruise ship has been shortened by a full 6 months. Thanks to the accumulation of technical knowledge formed by the extensive cooperation and independent innovation of the first cruise ship, various tasks are progressing steadily. In the follow-up, Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding will continue to expand the “circle of friends”, draw on superior forces, increase investment in scientific and technological innovation, and empower in-depth Can cruise engineering. At present, about 40% of the detailed design of the cruise ship has been completed, and the balance of production design models and the issuance of structural production design drawings have been fully launched.

Today, two large cruise ships are being built at the same time in Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding, which will further help China’s shipbuilding industry to reach new heights and achieve high-quality transformation and upgrading from large to strong. , The power of science and technology has a significant and far-reaching impact.

Is the first large cruise ship going well?

Large cruise ships can directly reflect a country’s equipment construction capability and comprehensive technology level. Fully promoting the design and construction of large cruise ships is a landmark project for the transformation and upgrading of China’s shipbuilding industry and the enhancement of the global influence of Chinese manufacturing. On October 18, 2019, China’s first large-scale cruise ship officially started construction and entered the substantive construction stage. The plan is progressing in an orderly manner.
