Chinese yard delivers large-capacity offshore fish farm
Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Group Offshore Engineering of China has delivered a new deep-sea fish farming platform to the Zhuhai Agricultural Control Group.
The 123.8- by 66.8-metre Wan Qu Hengzhou Hao (“Hengzhou Bay Area”) can accommodate an estimated 200,000 fish in 91,000 cubic metres of water. A dampened truss structure and self-lifting capability will ensure that it can still operate even in areas experiencing typhoons.
The structure will be deployed in the waters of the Dawan District between Guangdong, Hong Kong, and Macau.
Design work on the fish farm was carried out by DSS Marine Engineering in compliance to China Classification Society rules.
