Typhoon Signal No. 8 "Siamba" struck, and a construction vessel named "Fuk King 001" broke off in the southwest waters of Hong Kong. About 30 crew members were in distress, of which 3 were rescued by helicopters of the Hong Kong Flying Service. hospital.
The reporter of "Hong Kong 01" checked the online information and found that the construction vessel involved was an offshore wind power installation platform. About a month ago, it successfully completed the basic steel pipe pile construction of the power generation project in the Qingzhou sea area of mainland China.
"Fujing No. 001" is owned by Shanghai Huajing Zhiyun Ocean Technology Co., Ltd. (CNOE). From the pictures on the official website, there is a large lifting boom on board. Compared with the pictures of the accident scene, about two-thirds of them are broken. Part of the hull, that is, the part of the hull on the heavy arm, was swallowed up by the raging sea, while the buildings on the other part of the hull also fell into the water and were engulfed by the sea from time to time.
The construction vessel "Fujing 001" is owned by Shanghai Huajing Zhiyun Ocean Technology Co., Ltd. (CNOE) and is used in Qingzhou, which is invested and constructed by Yudean Group Yangjiang Company, located in the sea near Shapa Town, Yangxi County, Yangjiang City, Guangdong Province. One and two offshore wind power projects Offshore wind power projects, and the project is equipped with a total of 92 typhoon-resistant MySE11-230 offshore wind turbines, "Fujing No. 001" is responsible for the settlement of no less than 40 sets of jackets and foundation steel pipe piles Work.
According to CNOE's official website, after "Fujing 001" completed the piling project of the last basic steel pipe pile of the No. 10 fan stand jacket for the offshore wind farm a month ago, the main large-scale project of Qingzhou Offshore Wind Power Project can be The official construction is expected to provide 3.6 billion kilowatts of clean electricity every year. Compared with coal-fired thermal power plants of the same power generation scale, it can save about 1.05 million tons of standard coal consumption and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 2.78 million tons.
The website also pointed out that the entire project has entered the most critical stage, and the sea conditions in the deep water area are more complicated. The settlement of the jacket and steel pipe piles will bring greater challenges to "Fujing No. 001", and the company will strive to complete the work successfully.
However, the "Fujing 001" encountered an accident this morning. The hull was broken in two, and the hull on one side of the giant boom sank into the sea. It is not known whether it will affect the Qingzhou Offshore Wind Power Project.
The engineering ship broke in two and floated in the huge waves.

The Hong Kong Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (the Centre) received a notification from the Guangdong Rescue Coordination Centre this morning that the vessel "Fujing 001" had an accident in the inland waters about 160 nautical miles southwest of Hong Kong. service; the center immediately coordinated the search and rescue work of the Hong Kong Government Flying Service.
The vessel involved was a Mainland-registered engineering vessel with a length of 204 meters and was carrying a total of 30 Mainland crew members at the time of the incident.
The Government Flying Service also stated that it was notified by the Hong Kong Maritime Rescue Coordination Center at 7:25 this morning (2nd) that an accident occurred on an engineering vessel about 160 nautical miles (about 300 kilometers) southwest of Hong Kong, and 30 crew members abandoned the ship. escape.
The scene is very close to the center of the eye of Typhoon Siamba, with wind speeds of up to 144 kilometers per hour, visibility of 500 meters, and sea swells of up to 10 meters.
In addition to bad weather conditions, there are multiple wind power generation clusters near the accident site, which increases the difficulty and danger of search and rescue.
As of 3:00 p.m., in addition to the rescue team dispatched from the mainland, the flight service team also dispatched 2 fixed-wing aircraft and 4 helicopters to the scene to assist, successfully rescued 3 crew members and returned to the flight service team headquarters, where they were transferred by ambulance. Hospital.
A man believed to be a crew member was pushed into the A&E ward in a wheelchair. Police officers were investigating in the room. It is reported that the procedure was complicated because he was a Mainland crew member.
