The Taihu, a military supply ship, conducted a replenishment docking with civilian container ship Fuzhou in an offshore area in mid-November amid the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s exploration of new ways to replenish ships at sea, the PLA Daily reported Monday.

This was the first time for Taihu to receive supplies from a civilian vessel, according to the report.

The success of the replenishment laid a foundation for mutual replenishment of various kinds of materials between military and civilian ships, it read.

The naval fleet is usually accompanied by supply ships. When supply ships start to deplete their cargo, they need to return to port for replenishment to restore their original capacity.

“It would save a lot of time if other ships could replenish these ships at sea”, Yu Yongyue, chief of staff of the detachment under the Northern Theater Command which Taihu serves, was quoted as saying.

Yu noted that mutual supply at sea between military and civilian ships is common in the navies of world powers.

The chief of the battalion of the Northern Field Command, which is served by the Taihu  Yongyue, said in a statement that the navy is usually accompanied by supply vessels, and when supply ships begin to exhaust their cargo, they need to return to the port for refueling. Exploring new capabilities at sea will save a lot of time.

Mutual supply at sea between military and civilian ships is common in the naval forces of world powers, Yue said.
