The multi-functional oil spill disposal vessel "Yu Rescue 131" carries out oil spill disposal in the oil-spill area. Independently developed by the Chongqing Municipal Port and Maritime Center, the vessel is equipped with 200-meter quick-release oil booms, an oil receiver, an oil recovery storage cabin, and quick-recovery equipment, and is mainly used for emergency disposal after oil pollution accidents.
A survey vessel equipped with a multi-beam bathymetry system is also unveiled in the drill. Based on the principle of ultrasonic, the equipment is capable of efficiently surveying the panorama of underwater topography with a maximum working depth of 500 meters, producing a real-time topographic map of the river bed, and accurately measuring the position and depth of sunken ships, objects, and navigation obstacles. The vessel provides technical support for deep-water salvage.
Fire rescue vessels put out the open fire on the cargo ship.
