Zhenhua heavy industry won the big European order to compete for the Atlantic Gateway

China Construction Machinery Information

although the economic downturn in Europe has a great impact on the regional shipping industry, the large British port operator peer ports (hereinafter referred to as peer) has made sure that they produce lighter Higher strength auto parts are likely to offer a purchase contract with a total value of US $170million to Chinese equipment manufacturer Shanghai Zhenhua heavy industry (Group) Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Zhenhua heavy industry). This is also the new investment made by peer in port machinery and equipment in order to expand its Liverpool port and build it into a gateway to the Atlantic Ocean. The series of cooperation that the two sides may reach after this will also be a very suitable overseas sample for Zhenhua heavy industry to transform from a pure port machinery and equipment manufacturer to a new field such as marine engineering, automatic wharf construction and marine industry investment

Atlantic portal's order

"the plight of the European economy will not have any impact on our investment in Liverpool port, because it is located in the heart of the UK in terms of location, and domestic demand alone is enough to meet the port's throughput," said Mark Whitworth, CEO of peel, on July 30, "The next step is to build the Liverpool Port Phase 2 Wharf into an important part of the huge project called 'Atlantic Gateway'. This project is planned to attract US $85billion (50billion pounds) of investment in 50 years. It will develop the area between Manchester and Liverpool, becoming the largest and widest development project in British history."

Liverpool Port Phase II terminal is a deep-water container terminal of peel in Liverpool port, with a total investment of 512million US dollars. After completion, it will be able to accommodate 95% of the world's container fleet

the port machinery purchased by peer from Zhenhua heavy industries is prepared for the expanded Liverpool port, including 8 sets of ship to shore (STS) megamax port cranes and 22 sets of cantilever Rail Gantry Cranes (CRMG)

after the completion of Liverpool Port Phase II project, it will become the largest transatlantic deepwater container terminal in Britain, double the container throughput of the whole Liverpool port, and become the first semi-automatic container port in Europe

weimak revealed: "the Liverpool Port Phase 2 Wharf will create a direct trade route for the British people living within 240 kilometers around Liverpool to supply Chinese goods, and will provide the most convenient route for Chinese merchant ships to enter the Nordic market, not only for goods destined for the English market, but also for goods destined for Scotland, Ireland and North Wales. The newly opened annual throughput is 4million TEU (20 foot standard container units of measurement) to enhance potential trade between the two countries. "

this goal of Liverpool port is obviously based on sufficient trade data. According to official data, China became the seventh largest export market of Britain last year. British exports to China reached US $21.1 billion (12.4 billion pounds), up 17% year-on-year. China is Britain's third largest importer. UK imports from China reached US $56.8 billion (33.3 billion British pounds can be reanalyzed on the curve), an increase of 6% year-on-year and 9% since 2010

in these trades, sea transportation has played a great role, especially in Liverpool port, which is located in the heart of Britain. When British Prime Minister davidcameron inspected the phase II wharf project of Liverpool port, he also said frankly, "many large container ships call at the southern port, but most of the goods are destined for the northern part of Britain."

"Zhenhua heavy industry is not only providing cranes, they are helping us complete a project that can change the entire UK logistics industry." Weimark said

for Zhenhua heavy industry, although the core business is still the sales of port machinery, after accounting for more than 70% of the global market, the weakness of the shipping industry makes port 1 The overall clean mouth industry of the material testing machine has been affected, and the lack of new business has also pushed it to the position of transformation

weak shipping promotes Zhenhua's transformation

"from the order situation in the first half of this year, the order of offshore engineering has exceeded that of Hong Kong Machinery," said Wang Jue, financial director of Zhenhua heavy industry on July 30, "but in the whole year, the order of offshore engineering should be about 40% and that of Hong Kong Machinery about 60%. For us, the most ideal proportion should be half and half respectively."

Zhenhua heavy industry, which started with port machinery equipment, changed its name from Shanghai Zhenhua Port Machinery (Group) Co., Ltd. to Zhenhua heavy industry as early as 2009. It can also be seen that it has long realized that the continued development in a single equipment manufacturing industry is not sustainable

songhailiang, chairman, Secretary of the Party committee and President of Zhenhua heavy industry, said, "at present, Zhenhua heavy industry has occupied more than 70% of the global port machinery market and occupies an absolute leading position in this field. However, even so, it still needs to transform, gradually reduce its dependence on the port machinery business, and has defined eight business segments, hoping to realize the transformation from relying solely on products to providing services."

Wang Jue said, "Zhenhua heavy industry can fully achieve more market share in the field of Hong Kong Machinery, but under the current economic situation, the total amount has shown insufficient. Before, we could achieve a scale of 30billion a year, but last year it was only 23billion, which was partly driven by investment." therefore, it said that "if we do not transform, the enterprise can not continue."

in addition to the marine engineering field, another key development direction of Zhenhua heavy industry is the overall scheme construction of the automated wharf system. According to songhailiang, Xiamen port, the first customer in this field, will be fully commissioned in November this year, and it is expected to sign the overall contract with Qingdao port and Yangshan port at the end of this year and the beginning of next year

according to the 2013 performance report released by Zhenhua heavy industry at the beginning of the year, the company achieved an operating revenue of 23.202 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 27.1%; The net profit attributable to the owners of the parent company was 139.8 million yuan, reversing losses on a year-on-year basis

"last year's performance increased by 70% compared with the previous year. If the orders of Yangshan port can be completed this year, it will certainly increase compared with last year and is expected to increase by 30%." Songhailiang disclosed

in addition to the large order of peer, there are still more possibilities for cooperation between the two sides, which is also the further test of Zhenhua heavy industry's business transformation overseas

when talking about the 50billion investment plan of Liverpool port, weimark expressed the hope to achieve further cooperation with Zhenhua heavy industry. Songhailiang immediately said that he would establish a customer service center in Liverpool to provide further services to peer and other European customers, and Zhenhua heavy industry would provide wharf construction consulting services if Liverpool port had a demand
