The Changsha International Construction Equipment Exhibition (CICEE) was grandly opened on May 15, 2019. A total of 1,150 world-renowned construction machinery companies participated. Chen Weihong, a famous host of CCTV, came to Changsha with the "Dialogue" program group. He invited some well-known figures of the construction machinery enterprises, such as Sany Heavy Industry Co., Ltd. (SANY), LiuGong Group Co., Ltd. (LiuGong), China Railway Engineering Equipment Group Co., Ltd. (CREG), and China Railway Construction Heavy Industry Corporation Co., Ltd. (CRCHI), to talk about the “Chinese power” behind world super projects.
Xiang Wenbo, Sany president, said that technological innovation is the core driving force for development. It has always been crucial for Sany's progress, allowing the company to grow from a “follower” to a “leader”. In the past few years, in the wave of digital transformation, Sany has set a new trend, transformed rapidly, embraced the Internet, accelerated internationalization, and promoted upgrading of traditional industries and replacing the old drivers of growth through new technologies. It has achieved the goal of upgrading itself from “manufacturing” to “intelligent creation”.
Zeng Guangan, LiuGong chairman, believed that globalization and intelligence promote the high-quality development of Chinese enterprises. In recent years, LiuGong has actively participated in the construction of major “Belt and Road” projects, covering more than 50 countries, with a coverage rate of 85%. LiugGng loaders, excavators, road rollers, graders, and other products are also produced in China, India, Poland, and Brazil. The localization level in India is nearly 50%, providing efficient and high-quality products and services to customers in the “Belt and Road” countries and regions.
“We have implemented ‘three transformations’ to create a new profile of high-end manufacturing,” Tan Shunhui, CREG general manager, noted. At present, CREG products have been exported to 18 countries and regions, including Singapore, Dubai, Lebanon, Israel, and Italy. The Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) have become a high-end Chinese manufacturing highlight.
Liu Feixiang, CRCHI chairman, remarked that super underground intelligent construction equipment makes super underground projects easier. “The number of R&D designers accounted for more than 20% of the total employees, and R&D expenses accounted for more than 5% of the total revenue. We have created an industry record: we have 2 research results on R&D per week. We have obtained more than 1,800 patents. All products have completely independent intellectual property rights. CRCHI is the only manufacturer in the underground engineering equipment industry that has no foreign capital or technology,” he added.
