Chinese institute creates aquaculture platform that harnesses ocean wave energy
A semi-submersible aquaculture platform created by China's Guangzhou Institute of Energy Conversion (Chinese Academy of Sciences) is able to harness ocean wave energy, Xinhua reported.
The platform, which has already received patents from China, Japan and the European Union, employs various functions including power generation, deep-sea aquaculture and tourism. Its creation was backed by years of experience in ocean wave energy development.
The prototype of the platform had been delivered, and the Institute of Energy Conversion will work with companies to test it in a marine environment.
The platform demonstrates China's growing capacity in offshore aquaculture equipment and engineering, and is expected to promote the development of marine economy, according to the institute.
