Construction of the lighthouse on the Meiji Reef  has completed its primary part and additional data will be dischargedby means of route declaration, Xu said. All of the five lighthouses are large and multi-functional with their heights between 50 meters to 55 meters. They are equipped with huge modern rotating lamp device and lanterns with a diameter of 4.5 meters. The lantern can send white light to as far as 22 nautical miles.

 

The five lighthouses equipped with automatic identification system (AIS) and very high frequency (VHF) stations can also work like a radiobeacon to assist navigation with information exchanges such as warnings and requests for help between the lighthouses and ships.

 

The construction and use of the five lighthouses demonstrated China’s efforts to perform its international responsibilities and will contribute to navigation support, maritime search and rescue, navigation safety, fishery production, disaster prevention and relief and other services, according to Xu.
