Project introduction:

 On May 2, 2010, the "light of the century", carrying 170000 tons of ore, collided in the fog about 50km east of Chengshantou, Weihai, Shandong, and finally sank. The sunken ship is the largest tonnage sunken ship in Chinese waters since the founding of the people's Republic of China. The actual water depth at the sinking point is 65m, the seabed mud is sandy hard clay, and the sinking mud is about 4m; The current speed is up to 3 knots. On June 25, 2011, our company started the salvage operation of "Century Light" sunken cargo and sunken ship, and invested 16 ships to participate in the construction, with a total of 183 voyages and nearly 200 construction personnel. Our company successfully completed the salvage operation of "Century Light" sunken cargo and sunken ship, salvaging about 120000 tons of iron ore and more than 20000 tons of hull debris.
