Mingyang Building Fish Farm-Equipped Offshore Wind Jacket Foundation

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

This is the sub-heading.

Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Mingyang Smart Energy revealed on 17 April that it started the construction of a jacket foundation that also features a net cage system for fish farming, which will be installed at the Mingyang Qingzhou 4 offshore wind farm in the South China Sea later this year.

The picture in the article, looks like something out of Baldrick’s book of cunning plans.

This paragraph gives more details.

The jacket is typhoon-resistant and the aquaculture system, which will raise up to 150,000 fish in 5,000 cubic metres of water, will have remote functions such as automated feeding, monitoring, detection, and collection, according to Mingyang.

Mingyang also state that the Qingzhou 4 offshore wind farm will also produce hydrogen.

Does that mean that in the next phase of the development, they’ll be putting a fish and chip shop on top?
