Atlas Copco China - ES seminar Dongguan
Held at the Lotus Villa Hotel in Dongguan, the seminar was attended by over 50 customers from South & West China. The event provided Atlas Copco with an opportunity to share some of the maintenance plans it has developed for customers and explain how it develops energy-saving plans through active partnerships between the customer service team and customers.
Statistics show that at present, energy efficiency utilization in China is about 10% lower than that of international standards. In addition the unit product energy consumption level in major domestic energy-consuming industries can vary from 25%-90% higher than that of developed countries.
The Eleventh Five-year Program for National Economy and Social Development explicitly states that from 2006 to 2010, China will reduce it’s per unit energy consumption GDP by 20%. This means that energy-saving has become a top priority for enterprises and officials and in the coming three years, China needs to aggressively reduce energy consumption and improve productivity.
To help companies in China to reduce energy consumption and improve productivity, Atlas Copco provides energy-saving solutions including an energy system auditing solution called AIRScan, energy consumption optimization solution AIROptimizer and remote control solution AIRConnect.
Markku Keloneva, Business Development Manager for Optimizing Products Asia of Atlas Copco said: “Chinese companies need more support for comprehensive energy saving system adoption and regular direction from professional companies after purchasing energy saving equipments. Equipment is only one aspect of an energy saving project. Chinese enterprises should establish a whole system for energy saving and receive professional guidance to ensure long-term effects."
Representatives from Qing Feng Textile, Zhejiang Province, also shared their experiences and comments of using Atlas Copco’s energy-saving solutions.
