Atlas Copco China-Underwater drilling, Qingdao
Throughout the world, ports are expanding to meet the increasing demand for large, deep berths with heavyweight handling capacity created by rising global trade. China is no exception. Qingdao Port, on the Shandong Peninsula, is one of the country's best ports because of its favorable geographical location.

Recently, Qingdao Municipal Government has decided to invest RMB 1.4 billion in 2007 to upgrade Qingdao Port and turn it into an international port. To assist the expansion of the Qingdao Port, Guangxi New Harbor Engineering Co., Ltd was hired to help build deep-water berths by providing professional underwater drilling services in a bid to meet the demand of building deep-water berths.

Atlas Copco was chosen by New Harbor Engineering Co. to provide portable diesel-oil compressors of various types, which generate continuous compressed air to underwater drilling tools.  “We have been using Atlas Copco compressors for over 5 years. There have been no major malfunctions”, according to Mr. Wei Zhuangji, Manager of Equipment Maintenance Department of NewHarbor. 

“Atlas Copco's portable diesel compressors perfectly meet the technical requirements of New Harbor Engineering for high pressure compressed air (max 25 Bar). In addition, the low cost of ownership as well as the strong reputation for providing reliable, high quality products with a long life span has made Atlas Copco an attractive option”, Wei Zhuanggi explained. 

“Our client approached us because they needed more than just a product. Our designed solutions can meet clients' needs well and minimize their overall operational cost.”, stressed James Zhou, Business Line Manager, Atlas Copco (Shanghai) Trading Co., Ltd.

“We have become a full-range solutions provider including product and aftermarket services.” said James Zhou, “We will continue creating win-win situations between us and our clients by introducing higher quality products and supporting services.”
