Two LPG-powered painted pleasure boats "XIONG'AN BAIYANG" and "XIONG'AN YANGlING" have been put into operation recently in the Baiyangdian Scenic Area, Xiong'an New District, which is known as the "Pearl of North China".
As the new flagship of the Baiyangdian Scenic Area, the two LPG-powered painted pleasure boats were specially developed and built for the Scenic Area by Hubei Sanjiang Ship and Boat Technology Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Space Sanjiang Group, and experienced a construction survey by CCS Wuhan Branch. The operation of the boats officially opened the prelude to the phase-out of fuel-powered old passenger ships and the upgrading for clean energy ships in the Baiyangdian waters of Xiong'an New District.
The boats are designed and constructed in accordance with the Technical Rules for the Survey of Small Inland Waterway Ships (2016) and its 2019 revision notice and related construction specifications of CCS. Equipped with a hull all made of aluminum alloy and two LPG outboard power units, they are made into an energy-saving and environment-friendly ship type with excellent performance suitable for various purposes such as leisure, tourism and reception.
After receiving the survey application, CCS Wuhan Branch provided active cooperation in their production schedule, organized the shipyard and the design institute for technical seminars, conducted technical training for the shipyard, and made suggestions on the improvement for ship optimization.
Xiong'an New District is among the first batch of pilot units for the strategy of building a country with strong transportation network. The successful delivery of the two boats is among the first batch of achievements in the implementation of the strategy in Xiong'an as well as a joint effort made by CCS and Hubei shipbuilding enterprises in the context of the fight against the pandemic for promoting the construction of Xiong'an New District.
