On the 10th May 2023 Hour Hong- Kong SAR – Beijing time CNSA –China National Space Administration On 13th June 2023 Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site’s No. 3 launch station started construction the ground-breaking ceremony for the launching station of Hainan Commercial Development Project No. 3 (solid rocket) was held at the Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site in Wenchang City, and the project construction was fully launched.
The station is located in the southwest corner of the launch area and consists of a launch pad, four lightning protection towers and a pre-equipment room. It will be mainly used for launching small solid launch vehicles in the future.
The construction content of the LCC3 project includes the power center, small solid rocket launch station, equipment room, test work room and other auxiliary rooms, and the outdoor project of the launch area. The building is a reinforced concrete frame structure, a reinforced concrete shear wall structure, and a steel pipe tower. The structure has a second-grade fire resistance rating and a seismic fortification intensity of 7 degrees ….
The construction period is 180 days! Speed up construction, the groundbreaking ceremony for the No. 3 (solid rocket) launch station of the Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site project was held at the Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site in Wenchang City, and the project construction was fully launched. The construction content includes the power center, test work room, waste water treatment facility room, small solid rocket launch station equipment room, etc. The planned construction period is 180 days.
Hainan Commercial Development will also build No. 3 and No. 4 launch complex stations in the future, and Jielong No. 3 is expected to achieve commercial launch in Qiong next year….. On the morning of April 12, the First Academy of Aerospace Sciences went to Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site for investigation and investigation, and communicated with The entrepreneurial team of Hainan Commercial Development Co., Ltd. communicated at the headquarters and jointly sought a cooperation space for the commercial launch of Jielong series solid launch vehicles in Hainan.
The development team of the Jielong series of launch vehicles introduced the test and launch process of solid launch vehicles and the technical requirements for the launch site. The solid launch vehicle has the advantages of low total launch cost, high launch frequency, and short compliance period. It can provide high-quality and cheap launch services for the Chinese commercial satellite market. Its 700-kilometer sun-synchronous orbit carrying capacity can cover 200kg to 1.5t. The development of a large-tonnage solid launch vehicle with greater carrying capacity and better economy will be demonstrated.
According to Jin Xin, commander-in-chief of the first aerospace institute, and Ouyang Song, deputy chief engineer of the model, there are currently two main launch modes for solid rockets, the “two flat and one vertical” test launch mode and the “three flat and one vertical” test launch mode. The field’s technical workshop, launch area, and hoisting capacity all have specific requirements. In addition, solid rockets have the characteristics of large diameter and high weight. Shipping by sea is the most economical and reliable mode of transportation. Shipping from the assembly plant to Wenchang, Hainan will pass through sea areas in different climate zones. The water depth, width and other parameters of the port, as well as the transfer of the vehicle to the Hainan Commercial Space Launch Site after the rocket lands at the port, there are still many problems that need to be considered and resolved along the way.
At present, Hainan Commercial Development Co., Ltd. is building the No. 1 launch station of the “three vertical test launch mode” and the No. 2 launch station of the “Sanping Test Launch Mode”. In the future, the No. 3 and No. 4 launch stations will be built to maximize Improve launch capabilities, reduce launch costs and launch service fees, and help friends who are interested in commercial aerospace to achieve a win-win situation on the Hainan Commercial Development Platform….
