The People's Liberation Army Navy's (PLAN's) new Type 901 replenishment ship commenced sea trials on 18 December, according to Chinese media.
据中国媒体报道,中国人民解放军海军(PLAN's)新的901型补给舰于12月18日开始试航。

The 45,000-tonne vessel, which was built at Guangzhou Shipyard International's Longxue shipyard on the Pearl River, is expected to provide logistics support to the PLAN's nascent carrier force.
45000吨的船只,在位于珠江的广州中船龙穴造船有限公司建造,预计将对中国海军的新航母提供后期保障。 

Photographic evidence of the ship's construction emerged in late 2015, not long before it was launched on 15 December 2015. It is equipped with three gantries and a fourth high-point structure port side aft, configured with five hose rigs for liquid refuelling on the port side and four on the starboard side. The central gantry provides a transfer station for solids on each side.
船舶建造的摄影证据在2015年底出现,而在不久前于的12月15日下水.。它配备了三个补给门架和第四个位于左舷船尾构造高点,在左舷配置五个软管设备用于液体燃料和在右舷配置四个。中间门架提供了一个中转站用于每侧固体物资。 

The ability to have multiple hoses connected will enable the Type 901 to not only provide aviation fuel and fuel oil to the carrier simultaneously, but also minimise the duration of each replenishment serial: a potentially hazardous evolution which limits the carrier's manoeuvrability and precludes it from operating aircraft.
有多个软管连接的能力将使901型不仅为航母同时提供航空燃料和燃油,而且还减少每次连续补货的持续时间:发生一个潜在的危险限制了航母的机动性,妨碍它操作飞机。 

The Type 901 will be able to refuel a carrier from its port side and, when fully worked-up, the ship will also be able to simultaneously refuel one of the carrier's destroyer/frigate escorts on its starboard side.
901型能够从左舷为航母加燃料,当充分调动起来,船也可以同时从右舷向为航母护航其中之一的驱逐舰/护卫舰同时加油。 

Replenishment of solids can be expected to include food and equipment spares, as well as air-launched munitions.
固体补给可以预计包括食品和设备备件,以及空中发射弹药。 

Propulsion of the Type 901 is thought to be provided by four QC280 gas turbines, each delivering 28 MW, enabling the ship to achieve a maximum speed of about 25 kt. This is significantly faster than the Fuchi-class (Type 903A). The speed is needed for the Type 901 to keep pace with the carrier and its escorts.
901型的推进被认为是由四台QC280燃气轮机提供,每台输送28兆瓦,使船舶达到约25节的最大航速。这比福池级(903A型)明显快。航速是901型与航母及其护卫同步行进的需要。 

Refuelling conventionally powered carriers may be required every 3-4 days if conducting intensive flying operations requiring the carrier to operate near its maximum speed for extended periods.
可能需要每3-4天为常规动力航母加燃料如果进行密集飞行操作需要航母在其最大速度附近长时间操作。
