    Chinese shipbuilder Hudong–Zhonghua is busy expanding thier naval yard it seems. Several dry-docks and more building are under construction.

    Rather than expanding they are building a new yard in that island. Their old yard close to Shanghai is supposed to be closed down and used for river front property development.
    The new yard is supposed to have better facilities.

    True, the production is probably going to step up either way.

    We really don't know what their schedule might be... they wont keep building ships at this rate unless they have a high failure rate which would be very bad, though I think unlikely.

    They will be looking at their sea lines of communication and trade and where the risky places are and how to get and maintain ships in those areas with some persistence to ensure their trade lines can't be interfered with.

    They are not making these ships for fun.

    The rate isnt showing any sign of slowing down yet. The Type-52D has probably reached it production goal of 25 vessels. The Type-054A frigate production continues with atleast 20 more vessels. The Type-055 is probably going for a second batch. Also its the Type-076 LDH should go in production in the next coming years.

    Then its the Type-004 carrier class, the type-054B frigate, the Type-095 SSN and the Type-096 SSBN.
