Designed and built by China, the Nanhaijiu 115 has a heliport that can accommodate medium-sized rescue helicopters.

The ship, which entered service in 2010, has carried out more than 110 rescue missions in the South China Sea, helping more than 1,000 people and more than 60 ships, and has salvaged property worth 10 billion yuan ($1.47 billion), according to Xinhua.

In addition to dispatching the vessel, China has taken other measures to enhance security in the South China Sea.

China has added a maritime rescue centre to its facilities on an artificial island in the South China Sea, pressing on with plans to turn the outpost into the biggest logistics hub in the disputed waters.

The Ministry of Transport said on Tuesday that the centre had been built on Fiery Cross Reef to serve the Spratly Islands, also known as the Nanshas.

The announcement comes six months after China stationed the Nanhaijiu-115 rescue ship at Subi Reef, another artificial island in the Spratlys.

The rescue centre would provide stronger and more comprehensive support to rescue missions and would be part of the ministry’s “South China Sea rescue bureau” , the ministry said.

MANILA, Philippines — China on Friday said it is in talks with the Philippines on matters related to the retrieval of a Philippine navy frigate that ran aground in the contested South China Sea.

The BRP Gregorio del Pilar ran aground during a routine patrol Wednesday night in the vicinity of Half Moon Shoal, which is called Hasa Hasa in the Philippines, the Philippine military said, adding that its crew was unhurt.

“China has learned of the relevant situation. China Coast Guard vessels are already at the scene. ‘Nanhaijiu 115,’ specialized in maritime search and rescue, is also in nearby waters,” Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Hua Chunying told a press conference.

"China is discussing with the Philippines on the relevant search and rescue matters," Hua added.

The United States and Asian governments which have claims in the region, including the Philippines, raised alarms over China's island building and militarization of the strategic territory.

Greg Poling, director of Washington-based Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative, warned that China may take advantage of the situation by offering assistance to the Philippines.
