By Jack Burke31 July 2019
Solar Turbines and China’s CGGC UN-Power have signed a Packaging Associate Agreement that authorizes licensed packagers to work with Solar on industrial power generation projects, including combined heat and power (CHP) applications in China.
The companies said the agreement will help drive more efficient and cleaner energy solutions in China. The agreement supports China’s industrial power generation strategy as well as Solar’s growth initiatives, the companies said. Additionally, CGGC UN-Power will work together with Solar’s Beijing Customer Services team to provide maintenance support services to customers.
CGGC UN-Power is part of the China Gezhouba Group Corp., which holds a diverse portfolio, including its dam construction and hydropower installations along the Yangtze River. The company is involved in manufacturing and operates as a large contractor in construction and power projects worldwide. CGGC UN-Power is a core member of the China Energy Engineering Group Co., Ltd (CEEC), a central government-administered state-owned entity of 160 000 employees.
Solar said this opportunity positively impacts CHP and distributed power generation. Through Solar’s local presence and a packaging relationship with CCGC UN-Power, Solar expects to create more opportunities within the energy market in China.
