NSC readies NT$600m for research ship

The National Science Council (國科會) has earmarked NT$600 million of its budget for next year to support a NT$1.5-billion project to build a new ocean research ship capable of withstanding harsh winter conditions and surveying areas off the southwestern coast for gas hydrate reserves, NSC officials said yesterday.
The new ship will be operated by the Center for Ocean Research under the National Applied Research Laboratories. Gas hydrate will become a vital source of energy in the next one or two decades, according to officials from the council.
