Post-90s team from Weihai: Empowering high-quality development of marine industry with scientific and tech
Zhizhen Marine Science and Technology (Weihai) Company Limited mainly engages in developing and manufacturing intelligent underwater robot, deep-sea equipment, and various unmanned underwater environment testing equipment. In 2019, it settled in Yuanyao Shallow Sea Scientific and Technological Bay Area, Huancui District, Weihai. The company was established by a group of post 90s doctors and masters. The team won the 2018 International Underwater Robot Competition, breaking the monopoly from European and American countries for twenty years. The company not only has the unique technology for underwater robots, but also has undertaken two major deep-sea projects under the 13th Five Year Plan of Ministry of Science and Technology. Recently, its research team has just developed ship-borne intelligent capture system for underwater vehicles. Right now, the team is carrying out a new round of shallow sea test on its accountability and stability serving marine scientific research.
Han Jinliang, general manager of Zhizhen Marine Science and Technology (Weihai) Company Limited: Thanks to such convenient scientific research environment, we have achieved forty-two intellectual property rights during the past three years. Last year, our company is listed as high-tech enterprise. Some standard commercial products have been put on market.
Han Jinliang, general manager of Zhizhen Marine Science and Technology (Weihai) Company Limited: In response to national demand, we concentrate on tackling core technologies. We are not afraid of the depth and distance of the ocean to keep our sea border solid as rock. Next we will focus on the application of underwater robots in the whole industry, develop all kinds of application-level underwater robots, make great efforts in our original core technologies so as to promote Made in Weihai better go to the forefront of the world.
From underwater docking of robots, underwater clustering to underwater capture, during this period, Zhizhen can conduct three to four different kinds of underwater tests simultaneously on the only national shallow sea comprehensive test site. As the scientific research goes deeper, we has made new achievements in scientific research. Now, it has broken many foreign key technology monopolies in the filed of global autonomous underwater robots.
Achieving deep and blue marine dream is what young people here want. It is also the dream of Weihai. In 2020, Weihai began the building of international marine science and technology city. Yuanyao Shallow Sea Scientific and Technological Bay Area where Zhizhen is located at, as the northern part, will seize the opportunity of jointly building national marine comprehensive test site by Shandong Province and Ministry of Natural Resources, building a new benchmark for marine electronic information and intelligent equipment industry in China.
