The new Lingang area, located on the southeast coast of Shanghai, is already home to some leading companies, like Tesla Inc., which is building its first overseas electric-car factory there.

The new area will match the standards of the most competitive free trade zones worldwide and will implement opening-up policies and systems with strong global market competitiveness, aiming to build a relatively mature system of free investment and trade by 2025, according to the Overall Plan issued by China’s State Council on August 6th, 2019.

A pep rally celebrating the admittance of the first batch of 13 high-tech companies into the new area of Shanghai Free trade zone was held at Lingang, Shanghai on August 20th.  During the meeting, leadership of the city issued business licenses for the 13 enterprises that are the first to enter the New Lingang Area, including Shanghai MiaSolé Equipment Technology Company, a subsidiary to Hanergy Mobile Energy Holding Group.

Yuan Yabin, Chairman of the Board at Hanergy Mobile Energy Holding Group, attended the meeting and received the business license of Shanghai MiaSolé Equipment Technology Company.

Yuan Yabin said“We’re proud to be among one of the first high-end manufacturing enterprises entering the New Lingang Area, to contribute to the country’s economic development. With Shanghai as the economic center, Hanergy plans on setting up the whole industrial layout for the world’s leading flexible thin-film solar power as well as establishing global R&D center, global sales center, and industrial innovation platform in the region.”

Shanghai has the best talents, research institutions, industrial chain resources, and excellent equipment supply chain for the pan-semiconductor industry, which is all the support needed for the actualization for a project. The project will drive the growth of both upstream and downstream businesses, lending strong support for equipment and raw material suppliers and setting up a mobile energy ecological industrial circle in Shanghai,” he added.

According to China’s ambitious plan, by 2035 the GDP of New Lingang Area will exceed 1 trillion Chinese Yuan (US$142 billion), which equals to the current GDP of Pudong New Area.

Situated at China’s Economic center, Lingang has been the home to a number of modern industries including new energy equipment, marine engineering, smart manufacturing, bio-pharmaceutical, artificial intelligence. It has attracted leading domestic as well as international enterprises such as Tesla, Alibaba, Tencent, and Hanergy Group, helping to achieve major technology breakthroughs. Mostly recently, Tesla has launched its first “super factory project” in New Lingang Area.

Hanergy signed with Shanghai Lingang Area Development and Construction Management Committee and Shanghai Lingang Economic Development Group early on April 12th this year to jointly build up a mobile energy smart manufacturing base.

According to the Agreement, Hanergy would set up a mobile energy industrial cluster with leading technology and whole industrial chain. Three subsidiary companies under Hanergy were set up after the signing of the contract.

Shanghai MiaSolé Equipment Technology Company, was registered in New Lingang Area on April 29 with its core business as R&D and manufacturing of the world’s only CIGS Roll Coater. This company was inaugurated into the new Lingang Area today (Aug 20, 2019).

The other two Hanergy sub-companies, Shanghai Shenxin Mobile Energy Smart Manufacturing Company and Shanghai MiaSolé New Material Company, were set up on May 20 and April 29 respectively. The former is mainly focusing on the R&D of the flexible CIGS solar power chips, which are widely used for distributed energy resources, green-powered building markets, and mobile energy markets. The latter is set up to develop the core raw material for the flexible CIGS solar power chips.

Hanergy is a global pioneer in thin-film solar power technology. The company has made a remarkable entry in the international market through global technology integration and self-reliant innovations. In thin-film solar power fields including GaAs and CIGS, Hanergy maintains six world records and boasts over 10,000 patent applications worldwide.

Hanergy’s cutting-edge technologies have been applied in a handful of large-scale projects, including Rafael Gallery, a landmark building in Shanghai and the world’s longest urban industrial porch with 1.5km long, a total solar roof area of 150,000 square meters, size of nearly 20 soccer fields.

Roleplaying a spy in Fortnite’s newest season kicks ass




I don’t build for the first five or so minutes of Fortnite matches anymore. After the recent Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 update, you’ll catch me crouching in a vent doing my best Agent 47 impression, holding incapacitated thugs up to retinal scanners at the bottom level of a massive subterranean base, or dressing up like one of those very thugs, trying to catch another player off guard with a surprise shotgun round to the face. 

I’m not even thinking about the encroaching storm or how terrible I still am at constructing elaborate staircases into the sky. This isn’t exactly Fortnite, it’s an urgent stealth game about intel and deception inside of Fortnite. 

The update adds some elaborate new locations with spy bases, intricate and dense new areas littered with secret passages, sprawling ventilation shafts, locked doors, and AI-controlled henchmen patrolling it all. Cameras and turrets are everywhere too, forcing stealthy play from the get-go. Unless you’re making a late-game detour, it’s unlikely you’ll have the weapons and ammo to take them all down. 

So you’ll want to try and sneak by, at least. Each base houses a vault packed with enough loot to keep you set for the rest of the match. Thing is, you need a master keycard to open the big vault. Finding it requires shaking down the right henchman to find the location of a unique area ‘boss’, essentially a henchman with extra health and shields, wielding powerful mythic weapons.

Blending into the scene and deceiving other players by role-playing a robotic NPC is a great joy.

You can technically find and take down the boss immediately, but skulking around to thin out the henchman army and other players while gathering loot is the best bet. Besides, if other players are in the area, taking on the boss immediately is a great way to tell everyone exactly where you are.

Another problem: the best loot is behind locked doors, and locked doors require a henchman’s eyes to open. My favorite tactic is using phone booths to disguise myself as one of the goons, which lets you open most doors and avoid the suspicion of cameras and guards, at which point Fortnite becomes Hitman-lite. Blending into the scene and deceiving other players by role-playing a robotic NPC is a great joy. You may be able to build, little Jimmy, but I’m a great liar. 

You can also shoot a guard to incapacitate them and shake them down for intel, which briefly shows the locations of all henchmen and the keycard location on the HUD, or carry them around and hold them up to retinal scanners like the big meaty keys they are. I’m not used to having this many options in Fortnite. Build and shoot and run were it until now.

The best battle royale design has always orbited the classic high risk for high rewards equation, but Fortnite’s new spy zones make that high risk incredibly appealing rather than daunting. I typically avoid popular arenas and favor slower, more tactical play, but the new spy zones let me keep that playstyle in a big crowd. 

If I successfully navigate the perils of a spy zone, either killing everyone onboard, including henchmen and other players, or infiltrate without a soul catching sight of me and get out with the kind of kit you typically only get 10 minutes into a match, I already feel like a winner. Even if some building master constructs a skyscraper and eliminates me the second I hit the mainland, I won’t be too upset. Most spy-base landings are tense, complete experiences on their own.  

In one particularly crowded match, I thought I’d put my Metal Gear skills to use and hid in a cardboard box right next to the entrance of the vault on the yacht spy base. I sat and waited and listened as all the other players eliminated one another and every henchmen until the victor rolled up to the door, ready to claim their spoils. But I spoiled it. Popped out and juiced ’em with an SMG. Took it all. No regrets. It’s really easy to get the jump on other players too, whether you’re in a box or not. Vents and secret passages run through each dense, layered zone, perfect for improvised ambushes and getaways.  

In another, I had no guns and no clear way through the base defenses, so I thought I’d ride the edge of the storm. It came in, destroyed all the henchman and turrets while I applied a few bandages and medpacks to stay alive. Even the boss bit the dust, so I took her infinite-use, zero-cooldown golden grappler gun, used a porta-potty which flushed me out of another on the mainland (yes, there are toilet portals in Fortnite now) and grappled to safety, escaping the storm with a sliver of health. Now that’s a heist, baby.

I love these spy movie flavored pockets of excitement at the beginning of every match. Gone are the dog days of landing in an unpopulated corner of the map, looting and farming and rotating without seeing another player for half the match, all because it’s a dependable tactic. Not a particularly fun one, though. 

With every new Fortnite season, I’m always asking myself where the hell it can possibly go next. Battle royale feels like a played out genre these days, a known entity gradually moving from its status as phenomenon and into normalcy. But Epic doesn’t want to settle. This chapter isn’t about new items and weapons and traversal, it’s about playful experimentation with the entire genre. Shifts in the item pool and meta were losing me by Season 7 or so, but I’ll keep coming back every couple months to play the new game inside the game.
