一家中国制造企业于上周四宣布计划建造一艘破冰船,这将是中国首艘民营极地科考船。

The icebreaker "Hadal X" will be built by Dutch shipyard Damen Group and owned and operated by Shanghai-based Rainbowfish Ocean Technology.

这艘名为“深渊极客”号的破冰船,将由荷兰船厂达门集团承建,并由总部位于上海的彩虹鱼海洋科技公司所有及独家运营。

Construction will start in 2018 and the icebreaker will be put into operation in 2021.
