World’s first floating wind power-fishery integrated platform now operational in SE China’s Fujian

The world’s first floating wind power-fishery integrated platform started official operation at the Nanri Island offshore wind farm in Putian, southeast China’s Fujian Province, on Friday, as part of China’s efforts to support oceanic green development through an innovative model to produce marine green products and clean energy.

Located at the center of the platform is a hexagonal water pool, beneath which lies a double-layered aquaculture net cage capable of accommodating 50,000 deep-sea fish. This innovative design enables the platform to simultaneously generate power on water and facilitate fish farming underwater. According to the staff, the development and construction of the wind power-fishery integrated platform is a multifaceted interdisciplinary project, involving research in energy and power as well as fish farming.
