The first phase of a dock in Sansha city, in south China's Hainan province, was put into use on Thursday after the project's completion.

The first stage construction of the dock on Yongxing Island, a seat of Sansha City, has taken three years to build, costing 339.5 million yuan (55 million U.S. dollars).

The dock has nine berths for unloading fish, ice and fuel supply, fishery administration and transport. It is operated by Hainan Harbor &Shipping Holding Co., Ltd., said Feng Wenhai, vice mayor of Sansha.

The second phase of the dock is being planned.

Sansha City was officially established in July last year to administer the Xisha, Zhongsha and Nansha islands and their surrounding waters in the South China Sea.
