Sany Group, the Chinese machinery behemoth, has unveiled the Sany & Zhongding New Energy Building Materials Industrial Park in Yancheng, Jiangsu province, with the aim of driving the city’s green development agenda.
The industrial park, which boasts a total investment of almost CNY100m ($14.4m), was inaugurated with the delivery of a host of electric products, including 80 electric mixers, 40 charging piles, and two electric loaders on Saturday.
In addition to these products, the park comprises a 2 MW photovoltaic power generation project, several electric loaders and energy supplement facilities, and a fleet of 200 pure electric concrete mixer trucks.
The park’s photovoltaic power generation project alone provides over 3 million kilowatt-hours of green energy and saves 2,400 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions annually. The 80 electric mixers and two loaders delivered on Saturday are expected to save 6,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions, with the park in total set to reduce more than 8,400 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
Xu Qilou, deputy head of Yancheng’s Yandu district, said: “The launch of the industrial park and the delivery of the equipment show the city’s concrete industry has stepped on the fast track of green development. The government will offer corresponding support.”
Xiang Ru’an, senior vice-president of Sany Group, added: “In the face of the future wave of digitalization and electrification in the construction machinery industry, Sany will increase its investment, innovate on the existing business model, fully promote electrification, international and digitalization and contribute to the green development of Yancheng as well as other cities in China.”
