Two facilities operating under Jenbacher brand
INNIO Group opened two new training centers in China’s Guangdong Province, the first for the company in the country.
The first center is in Dongguan City and the second center is in Zhaoqing. The facilities are operating under the Jenbacher brand name, localizing technical training that helps INNIO’s distributors and customers to continue delivering service in-country for the entire Jenbacher fleet.
“Providing INNIO’s more than 90-plus years of energy solutions expertise is a key part of helping our customers transition to net zero,” said Bright Yin, general manager for INNIO’s Jenbacher brand in China “The Training Centers will complement INNIO’s global customer support capabilities — bringing our existing training capabilities closer to China.”
INNIO said China seeks to deploy more organic waste treatment centers such as biomass. INNIO is a leader in China’s waste-to-energy industry with more than 800 Jenbacher units delivered in total across various industries to China. The new training centers will help meet the growing demand for local training. INNIO’s experienced trainers will provide tailored training programs as well as classroom and hands-on courses, enabling its students to develop skills and knowledge to optimize the value of their Jenbacher plants for customers.
The training centers will enhance distributor field service engineers’ capabilities, the company said. Students at the new local training centers will receive on-the-ground mechanical and electrical training courses for all series of Jenbacher products – T3/T4/T6/J624 – in China locally.
While both training centers are new, the 400 m2 Jenbacher China Training Center in Dongguan City is located at the site of INNIO’s authorized distributor-Camda New Energy Equipment Co., Ltd. The 500+ m2 Jenbacher China Training Center in Zhaoqing is located at the site of INNIO’s distributor-Guangzhou Shenfa M&E Industry Development Co., Ltd.
Globally, each year Jenbacher Training Centers deliver more than 10,000 classroom days. To date, INNIO’s global Training Centers documented more than 140,000 field tasks (on-the-job trainings) and more than 155,000 eTrainings have been completed over the years. INNIO’s Jenbacher trainers work with students that range from beginners to highly experienced, using theoretical and practical training, onsite coaching, and digital training.
