Mingyang’s First 12 MW Wind Turbine Up Offshore China, Fish-Farming Jacket Ready for Installation

In June, Mingyang Smart Energy completed the installation of the first MySE 12-242 wind turbine at the Mingyang Qingzhou 4 offshore wind farm in the South China Sea. Now, the developer has also completed the production of the “world’s first jacket+net cage” system for fish farming, the MyAC-JS05.

The 500 MW Mingyang Qingzhou 4 project, located off the coast of Yangjiang in Guangdong Province, will feature 25 MingYang’s MySE 11-230 and 18 MySE 12-242 offshore wind turbines. The units will be installed on fixed foundations, with Mingyang also set to deliver one floating turbine for the project.

The MyAC-JS05 is a typhoon-resistant aquaculture system built to withstand Class-17 typhoons with wind speeds of up to 61.2 m/s. This should ensure a safe farming environment for 15,000 groupers in deepwater.

With an estimated annual fish production of 75 tonnes, the project has the potential to generate an additional 5 million RMB (about EUR 632,050), said Mingyang.

The system will have remote functions such as automated feeding, monitoring, detection, and collection, according to Mingyang.
