231 meters! China Manatee II sets a new world record for deep-sea drilling rig drilling depth

At around 23:00 on April 7th, Beijing time, my country’s first “Manatee II” submarine large-hole deep pressure core drilling rig system led by Hunan University of Science and Technology successfully drilled 231 meters in the South China Sea over 2000 meters deep water, refreshing the world’s deep sea Drilling depth of subsea rigs. The success of this deep-sea test fills the gap in my country’s deep-sea subsea drilling equipment with a depth of more than 100 meters and has the function of holding pressure and coring, and also marks that my country has reached the world’s leading level in this technical field. Come and take a look at the growth trajectory of our country’s “Manatee”! (Reporter Xie Ying, drawing Zhao Yuer, Li Fan)
