Nocera, Linshan Trading to co-develop industrial park in Taiwan

WCN Editorial Team 11 Mar 2021 ASIA ENERGY & UTILITIES

Nocera Taiwan and Linshan Trading have signed an agreement to co-develop 60 hectares of the Green Energy Industrial Park of Taixi Township in Taiwan.

The new industrial park will be developed in collaboration with Yunlin County Government and J&V Energy Technology.

At the new facility, innovative aquaculture solutions will be integrated with electricity technologies.

It is expected to become the largest indoor recirculating aquaculture industrial park in Asia.

Nocera president Jeff Cheng said: “The dual use of the land by placing solar panels for power generation above the free-standing fish tanks will allow for greatly increased economic benefits from developing the land.

“This lowers the land utilisation by allowing fish production for consumption and the excess power generated can be sold to the electric grid operator.

“We are pleased to take the lead on this project to set an example of the government promoting green energy combining solar power and land-based RAS fish farm.”

The company stated that the combination of solar power and fish farm tanks in a single property increases the economic property utilisation, generates clean solar power, and also helps to feed the population of Taiwan.

In May last year, Spanish wind turbine manufacturer Siemens Gamesa unveiled plans to expand its nacelle assembly facility in Taichung to support the 300MW Hai Long 2 offshore wind farm in Taiwan.

The expansion was subject to certain conditions including the approval of Hai Long 2 by the Taiwanese authorities and final investment decision by project partners.

The work on the project included doubling the plot area to more than 60,000m² along with at least doubling the number of employees working for the company at the facility.
