Chinese MH 370 Search Ship to Port for Sonar Repair
Australia's Joint Agency Coordination Centre (JACC) informs that the Chinese survey ship 'Zhu Kezhen' which is conducting the bathymetric survey – or mapping of the ocean floor – is enroute to the port of Fremantle.
Zhu Kezhen suffered a defect to its multibeam echosounder and is coming into port to conduct the necessary repairs.
The journey is expected to take a couple of days. As previously advised, an Australian contracted survey vessel will also be involved in conducting the bathymetric survey and will arrive in the search area in June.
