China Coast Guard and Patrol vessels

Why does the MSA need such a large vessel for SAR. Doesn't China already have 2 12000 ton cutter in the region ?

China to build its first 10,000 ton maritime patrol vessel

The Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration signed a contract for China's first 10,000 ton-class maritime patrol vessel on Tuesday, which experts said could sail the high seas and provide assistance to Chinese and foreign ships in need.

Under the contract, the ship will be constructed by Huangpu Wenchong Shipbuilding Company under China State Shipbuilding Corporation Limited, according to a statement the company released on Tuesday.

Designed by the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation's No.701 Research Institute, the ship will be 165 meters long and 20.6 meters wide and have a displacement of 10,700 tons, according to the statement.

The ship will become China's first 10,000-ton class maritime patrol vessel and act as the country's flagship for high seas patrol and rescue operations, serving China's strategy of becoming a major ocean power, the statement said.

South China's Guangdong Province is an important starting point and coastal hub of the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), Li Jie, a Beijing-based naval expert, told the Global Times on Wednesday.

The large maritime patrol vessel could play a significant role as Guangdong will face more and more maritime tasks as the BRI develops, Li said.

Missions for the ship will include comprehensive law enforcement, emergency search and rescue, taking part in international maritime exchanges and cooperation and conducting maritime-related trainings, the statement said.

As a large ship it can carry more sailors, personnel and equipment and sail in rough seas, Li said, noting that it can also carry out longer missions and sail further distances than smaller patrol vessels.

The ship could have a crew of 100, accommodate 200 people rescued and host multiple types of helicopters, files show.

Li said the ship will not only rescue Chinese ships in peril, but help foreign ones in need.

The vessel should be delivered within two and a half years, according to a procurement notice released by Guangdong Maritime Safety Administration in April 2018.

China has experience with ships of a similar caliber, as the China Coast Guard already has two 10,000-ton class cutters, Li said.

Seas around China, i.e. Wester Pacific, North sea, East China sea and South China sea are typhoon zones. Small rescue ships and aircrafts would have problems in high sea states of 10 to 12, and strong winds more than 150km per hour.

12,000 tons ship is better than 3,000 tons rescue ships in such sea states. And ships caught in typhoon storms are helpless if all search and rescue aircrafts are grounded and all rescue ships kept in safe harbour. The need for large rescue ship is obvious.

Extract:
The 2018 Pacific typhoon season was the costliest Pacific typhoon season on record. The season was above-average, producing 29 storms, 13 typhoons, and 7 super typhoons. It was an event in the annual cycle of

Yes, there is such an overview. In my book "China's Maritime Forces" A compilation of all ships and boats of the Cinese Navy, Coast Guard and other state authorities and agencies like CMS, FLEC, Customs, CII, MSA and CRS. Almost all vessels are shown in true-to-scale sketches with their technical data and launch on commission data.
