In mid May, the China-made new-type vehicle-mounted degaussing station, which has been manufactured under the supervision of a military representative office of the Armaments Department under the Navy of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) stationed in Wuhan, finished overall technical joint debugging test and officially entered the degaussing center of a support base of the PLA Navy.
According to expert’s introduction, the China-made new-type vehicle-mounted degaussing station has successfully broken through nearly a hundred of key technologies. Able to carry out 24-hour degaussing operation under no wharf circumstance, it will greatly promote the maneuver support capacity of degaussing naval vessels.
Zhu Yunyu, senior engineer of the military representative office of the Armaments Department of the PLA Navy stationed in Wuhan, told the reporter that the new-type vehicle-mounted degaussing station is barely affected by sea conditions or time periods, besides, after integrated optimization, the vehicle-mounted degaussing devices have been all installed in the standard container, allowing to be carried by landing ship to degauss on the sea.
