According to Lin, the Haixun 09, attached to the Guangdong China MSA (Maritime Safety Administration), will be responsible for maritime patrol and law enforcement, emergency coordination and command, and prevention and control of ship pollution.

The Maritime Safety Administration of the People's Republic of China is a government agency that administers all matters related to maritime and shipping safety, including the supervision of maritime traffic safety and security, prevention of pollution from ships, inspection of ships and offshore facilities, navigational safety measures (including Search and Rescue, Aids to Navigation and the GMDSS), administrative management of port operations, and law enforcement on matters of maritime safety law. It was also responsible for marine accident investigation

The to-be-commissioned vessel boasts strong capabilities of dynamic perception, monitoring and early warning, information collection, comprehensive command, and maritime supervision. It has a displacement of 10,700 tons, an overall length of 165 meters and can reach a top speed of 25 knots, being able to carry multiple types of helicopters and capable of life-saving and search operations in anywhere except the polar regions. The vessel also has a marine data center equipped with various communication means and connected with multiple satellite systems, including Beidou.

Guangdong Province is located in the southeast coastal area of China, facing a vast sea area and a complex maritime environment. The commissioning of Haixun 09 will help improve the dynamic maritime traffic control and emergency support level of Guangdong Province.

At the same time, with its global cruise rescue function, the vessel will help the Guangdong MSA and even the China MSA better participate in international affairs and promote exchanges and cooperation with counterparts of the countries along the South China Sea.
