【National Leader of Metallurgical Ironmaking】
With its commitment to metallurgy and mining in China over the past six decades, the Company has grown to be the prime brand of China's metallurgical steelmaking as well as a major leader and promoter of China's metallurgical technology and equipment manufacturing. The Company has completed the design and general contracting for hundreds of large-scale mining projects at home and abroad, which is supported by its capabilities of design and general contracting of comprehensive recycling projects, and top-level metal and non-metallic mineral separation in China. It has R&D and building capabilities of a full range of sintering machines below 720 square meters. One example is that it has designed the largest sintering machine project of 660 square meters in China. In fact, it tops the world in terms of the number and area of sintering machine projects, which it has designed and built. With its special expertise, the Company has designed one of the largest oxidized pellet projects. The coal-based direct reduction iron making (one-step method) technology it has independently developed has been first industrialized around the world.
While committed to the development of metallurgical projects in China, the Company responds actively to the “going global” strategy by offering engineering consulting, design, general contracting as well as equipment supply to over 20 countries, including Brazil, Japan, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Australia, bringing China's metallurgical technologies and equipment to the world and won worldwide praise.
【Pioneer in Energy Conservation and Environment Protection】
The Company has been active to make its own contribution in energy conservation and environmental protection. It has established subsidiaries to specialize in these two fields as a pioneer in energy conservation and environment protection. The specialized subsidiaries mainly engage in waste heat and energy utilization, solid waste treatment and disposal, and prevention of atmospheric pollution, water pollution and physical pollution, pollution restoration and other environmental protection and resource recycling, making a relatively complete environmental protection industry chain that can offer a full range of environmental management services. With a number of core patents and proprietary technologies, the Company is in a leading position regarding the design level and technical strength in China. It is an energy-saving service enterprise, approval of which was reviewed and filed by the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Finance. It won such titles as “a pilot unit of environmental services in Hunan Province”, “the top ten environmental protection enterprises in Hunan Province”, and “an advanced enterprise promoting ‘going global’ in environment protection, and “a AAA enterprise of credit among nationwide enterprises in environmental protection”. In the field of metallurgy and environmental protection, the Company independently developed a series of energy-saving and environmentally-friendly core technologies that reach the international advanced level, such as high-efficiency utilization technology of sintering waste heat, direct-connected bell-type furnace waste heat boiler, coordinated treatment technology on activated carbon flue gas multi-pollutants, etc. These technologies are greatly improving energy conservation and consumption reduction in the steelmaking industry. It holds a strong technical strength in urban environmental protection fields such as industrial hazardous waste treatment, heavy metal treatment, soil remediation, landfill and incineration power generation, and industrial wastewater treatment, with its clients from around China. It is a leader in the field of hazardous waste treatment and landfill. The Company will continue to pursue the dream of “clean water and blue sky”, expand and refine its energy conservation and environmental protection business, and strive to become a leader in comprehensive development and a supplier of operation and management services in the field of energy conservation and environmental protection.
【New Force of Medicare & Urban Construction】
Holding a concept of “Better City Life”, the Company is devoting itself to the construction of infrastructures of medicare, urban infrastructure, and road transportation with an aim to be a leading enterprise in the whole life cycle service of medicare and urban construction in China. In this regard, the Company contracted the project of the Cancer Hospital of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences (Langfang Hospital Branch) under the model of EPC, which is the first Class-IIIA comprehensive tumor hospital with a proton center in North China, and No. 5 Xiangya Hospital, the largest and the most advanced large-scale comprehensive Class-IIIA hospital in Hunan Province, with its comprehensive ability in building large-scale urban construction projects and strong financing and operation capabilities. It designed the construction project for Shenzhen Civil Affairs Rehabilitation Center (A and B branches), which is among the first batch of rehabilitation and hospice hospitals invested by the national civil affairs system. It contracted the project of building Yunlong Avenue in Zhuzhou of Hunan Province under the model of BT (Build-Transfer), the urban arterial road with the largest one-time investment and the longest mileage in Zhuzhou. Besides, it contracted the engineering survey project with the largest single contract value in the urban infrastructure in Hunan Province in recent years. These projects make the company rank in the forefront of Hunan Province in terms of number and volume of the projects it has participated in the whole process of engineering consulting and supervision.
While based in the market of Hunan Province, the Company has been deeply developing the market of national strategic projects such as Xiong’an New Area and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area.
