Shaanxi Blower sees dou­ble-digit growth

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - BUSINESS - By JING SHUIYU in Bei­jing and HUO YAN in Xi’an

Blower man­u­fac­turer Shaanxi Blower (Group) Co Ltd, one of the win­ners of the fourth China In­dus­trial Award, said it will con­tinue to of­fer in­te­gra­tion so­lu­tions for so-called mi­cro elec­tric­ity grids or dis­trib­uted en­ergy re­sources.

The com­pany added that it is ex­pect­ing dou­ble-digit growth in its or­der vol­umes next year.

Dis­trib­uted en­ergy re­sources are smaller power sources. As the elec­tric­ity grid con­tin­ues to mod­ern­ize, DERs such as ad­vanced re­new­able tech­nolo­gies can help the tran­si­tion to a smarter elec­tric­ity grid.

DER sys­tems typ­i­cally uti­lize re­new­able en­ergy sources in­clud­ing hy­dro, biomass, so­lar power, wind power, and geo­ther­mal power and are lo­cated closer to end users.

Shaanxi Blower has been shift­ing its fo­cus from man­u­fac­tur­ing blow­ers to of­fer­ing dis­trib­uted en­ergy so­lu­tions for the past few years, said com­pany Chair­man Yin Jian’an.

“Driven by new growth of dis­trib­uted en­ergy sys­tems, the or­der vol­ume of 2016 is es­ti­mated to have a 20 per­cent year-on-year in­crease from last year,” Yin said. “In 2017, hope­fully, our com­pany will achieve a dou­ble-digit growth in or­der vol­umes.”

He added that to sat­isfy the huge de­mand from the dis­trib­uted en­ergy sec­tor, Shaanxi Blower has, in the long term striven to ex­plore the tech­nol­ogy and had come up with a so­lu­tion called the “en­ergy in­ter­con­nec­tion sym­bio­sis sys­tem”.

The un­der­ly­ing prin­ci­ple of the net­work is to sys­tem­at­i­cally plan all the en­ergy re­sources within a power catch­ment area and to even­tu­ally com­bine dif­fer­ent en­ergy re­sources such as cool­ing, heat, elec­tric­ity, wind, wa­ter and waste.

“The tran­si­tion of Shaanxi Blower from tra­di­tional equip­ment man­u­fac­tur­ing to more ser­vice-ori­ented man­u­fac­tur­ing has been suc­cess­ful,” said Wang Ruix­i­ang, pres­i­dent of China Ma­chin­ery In­dus­try Fed­er­a­tion.

“It has set an ex­am­ple for the in­dus­try to give more im­pe­tus to in­dus­trial trans­for­ma­tion and up­grad­ing.”

Shaanxi Blower said its pi­lot in­te­gra­tion so­lu­tion project for dis­trib­uted en­ergy re­sources, guided by the “en­ergy in­ter­con­nec­tion sym­bio­sis sys­tem” strat­egy, is now un­der con­struc­tion in its Lin­tong fac­tory.

The com­pany said its in­te­gra­tion so­lu­tion has been well re­ceived by the mar­ket, adding it has re­ceived an or­der from Ji­asheng Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in Shanxi.

In mid-De­cem­ber, Shaanxi Blower, to­gether with other 12 firms, won the fourth China In­dus­trial Award, the Chi­nese man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try’s most pres­ti­gious award. The bi­en­nial award was set up with the ap­proval of the State Coun­cil. It aims to se­lect and praise firms and projects in Chi­nese in­dus­try which have greatly con­trib­uted to na­tional eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment.
