27 Sep 17. China to build naval dock at Djibouti base. China intends to build a pier at its base in Djibouti so that People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) vessels can dock there, the South China Morning Post reported military sources as saying on 27 September. “The Chinese navy needs a large-scale pier to offer logistical support for its flotillas conducting anti-piracy operations in Somali waters,” a source told the newspaper. “The scale of the wharf should allow for the docking of a four-ship flotilla at least, including China’s new-generation Type 901 supply ship with a displacement of more than 40,000 tonnes.” The work on the pier will not begin until the construction of accommodation for Chinese military personnel has been completed at the base, the South China Morning Post reported.
