All things maritime at city show
Marintec China 2019, an international gathering and exhibition for the maritime industry, opened on Tuesday at the Shanghai New International Expo Center in the Pudong New Area.
The exhibition, which will run through until Friday, attracted exhibitors from 16 countries including Denmark, Germany, Norway and China.
The exhibition has been held every two years in Shanghai since 1979. This year, the exhibition highlights 5G technology in shipbuilding and navigation.
Industry leaders Kongsberg Maritime and Wartsila are displaying their latest auto navigation technologies.
Among the shipping projects on display is a deep-sea aquaculture vessel targeting high-quality and high-added-value fish and has an 80,000-cubic-meter aquaculture tank.
It relies on enclosed circulating water aquaculture and is a fish farm at sea.
It can effectively isolate invading pathogens, ensure safe aquaculture and lift aquaculture density.
It also has the ability to quickly move away from unsuitable ocean conditions such as typhoons and ensures uninterrupted work.
It allows farmed fish processing and refrigeration on board, and its designed annual output is more than 6,000 tons of salmon.
