New Base in China
The Power and Industrial Division of AAF International, a member of the Hong Leong Group Malaysia and a supplier of ancillary equipment for gas turbine power generation sets and gas compressor stations, has expanded its global operations by opening a plant in China. The company, based near Newcastle, England, has launched a new filtration and acoustic package production plant on the banks of the Yangzte River in the City of Wuhan.
The 25 000 square meter factory will make AAF filter housings, intake systems, turbine enclosures, exhaust systems, ventilation systems and AAF’s range of inlet cooling products. “The factory was established in Wuhan to take advantage of the local nucleus of highly skilled, low cost labor and to make our products more competitive to the gas turbine OEMs and their partners in China,” said Dave Carroll international sales manager for OEM’s.
