This is about the Type 055's ECM, not about it being in formation with CV18 in this artwork. CV18 here is based on the CSSC conference picture and on the island mockup used for equipment, so the island is a fair accurate representation.

Note the panel above the number "18". That panel there is about the same size as the panel underneath the bridge wing of the 055 and is likely the same device --- the ship's ECM. I won't be surprised if Carrier 003 would use the ECM system on the 055, and likewise the two sets of radars, one set small, one set big, are also taken from the 055.

I won't be surprised if the 056s and 054As are escorting 055s and other new ships like the Shandong during trials and shakedown in order to spot for snooping submarines trying to acquire the new ship's audio and sonar signature.
