China Wednesday unveiled a new domestically built marine geological survey vessel in south China's Guangdong Province.

Haiyang Dizhi-10 (Ocean Geology 10) enters the water after the launches of Haiyang Dizhi-8 and Haiyang Dizhi-9 in February.

Haiyang Dizhi-10 is 75.8 meters long and 15.4 meters wide with a displacement of 3,400 tonnes. The vessel has a range of 8,000 nautical miles.

"The new ship will be a great boost to China's marine exploration capability," said Zhong Ziran, director of China Geological Survey.

China now has six marine geological research vessels in service, with plans to put Haiyang Dizhi-10, Haiyang Dizhi-8 and Haiyang Dizhi-9 into active service by the end of the year. (Xinhua)
