Chinese turbines to drive Baihetan power dam
26th September 2017

 The world’s second-largest hydropower station, Baihetan, in southwest China will use Chinese turbines.

Baihetan is on the Jinsha River, the upper section of the Yangtze, straddling Sichuan and Yunnan provinces.
With an installed capacity of 16 million kilowatts, the dam is expected to generate more than 60 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity a year, equal to about two-thirds of Beijing’s consumption in 2015.
It will have 16 turbines, each with a capacity of 1 million KW, said Tu Yangwen, director of an equipment installing team of the China Three Gorges Corp, the Baihetan project owner.
This equipment was developed and made by Chinese companies. “Making million kilowatt-level turbines is no easy task,” said Tu.
Before 1994, when work began on the Three Gorges project, Chinese companies could not build a 350,000KW turbine.
“In cooperation with overseas hydropower equipment builders, China began to work on its own equipment,” said Tu, recalling construction of the Three Gorges project.
The Three Gorges project has 32 sets of 700,000KW generators.
When Baihetan was approved in 2006, development work on the generators began.
The plant will go fully operational by the end of 2022.
“China’s turbines are as good as any made by overseas companies. Our hydropower equipment has made great strides to become a strong competitor in the international marketplace,” said Zhang Chengping, director of mechanical and electrical engineering at the corporation.
Baihetan, one of four hydropower stations in the lower reaches of the Jinsha River, is downstream of the Wudongde plant that is under construction.
Xiluodu and Xiangjiaba stations have gone into operation.

Unmanned vehicle hub
25th September 2017

 Shanghai wants to build an industrial cluster for producers of unmanned vehicles.

Hu Weiguo, head of the city’s Jinshan District, said on Saturday at the opening of the 2017 World Unmanned System Conference that the district government had planned to foster such a production base.
He said the government would encourage research, production, testing and system integration of drones, self-driving vehicles and vessels, as well as intelligence robots in the industrial base.
China’s unmanned system industry is still in its infancy, said Sun Baiyuan, secretary-general of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems of China.
He said the industry needed strategic development, network safety protection and research on market applications.
The event showed off drones used for firefighting and automated delivery, unmanned vehicles for digging and demolition, as well as self-driving boats for testing water quality.
Industry officials from the United States, Britain and Germany attended the meeting.

Trading halt signals merger on the way
8th September 2017

 NINE listed subsidiaries of China’s two construction materials giants suspended trading yesterday, an indication the two state-owned groups are accelerating merger.

Five subsidiaries of China National Materials Group Corp (SINOMA) and two subsidiaries of China National Building Material Group Co halted trading on the mainland stock market. They will resume trading after the two groups “unveil some important issues.” The other two subsidiaries of the two groups on the Hong Kong stock market said they were waiting for details on the merger.
Although the companies didn’t unveil reasons for the trading suspension, China Securities Journal, quoting “some insiders” said they might be settling problems on integrating shareholders at the Hong Kong-listed subsidiaries.
Song Zhiping, chairman of CNBM, said in February the companies have started “deep integration” among their 15 listed subsidiaries.
CNBM is the world’s major non-metal materials manufacturer, with total assets of over 430 billion yuan (US$66 billion) last year. SINOMA is also a leader in the non-metal materials sector. A cement giant might be established if the two companies merge their subsidiaries as planned.
Their combined cement production capacity will total around 385 million tons a year, accounting for 22 percent of the nation’s total.

Hilton Shanghai set to rebrand in 2018
7th September 2017

 HILTON Shanghai, the first Hilton hotel on the Chinese mainland and one of the city's earliest international five-star hotels, will be rebranded from next year after operating for nearly three decades under the Hilton brand as the property's management contract with Hilton Worldwide will terminate in four months.

From January 1st, 2018, the hotel on Huashan Road in downtown Jing’an District “will no longer be operated by Hilton Hotels & Resorts,” according to a statement posted on its official website yesterday.
It remains unknown yet which hospitality group, from home or abroad, will manage the hotel next year.
A stone’s throw from Jing’an Temple, the 714-room property was a synonym for luxury when it first opened its doors in June 1988 when the city’s hospitality industry was just starting to develop.
For the past 30 years, numerous celebrities from around the world had stayed at the hotel, which was extremely popular among Western superstars who performed in the city particularly during the 1990s. The late pop diva Whitney Houston booked 180 rooms and suites at the hotel.
Tennis stars including Andre Agassi, Lleyton Hewitt and Roger Federer also chose to stay at Hilton Shanghai when they made their debut in the Tennis Masters Cup in 2002. The hotel later served for more than 10 years as the official hotel sponsor of the Tennis Masters Tournament.
