One of China’s first-generation fleet replenishment ships, Hongze Hu , was decommissioned in a ceremony held on 6 September at a naval base near Qingdao. Originally named Taicang , the 22,000-tonne vessel carried pennant numbers X575, Beiyun 575, and 575 before being renamed in 2002 and given pennant number 881.
