Vexve builds sustainable energy infrastructures in China for the long term

The air quality in China is improved one project at a time

Vexve builds sustainable energy infrastructures in China for the long term

  • China ratified the Paris climate agreement in September 2016.  China’s past two five-year plans as well as the future five-year plan focus on sustainable energy solutions and increasing energy efficiency.
  • Xingtai is a city in the southern Hebei province, with a population of approximately 7.1 million people.  It’s also among the cities that have most challenges with air quality in China. 
  • By increasing the centralized heating area and replacing small, coal-based heating units with district heating, Xingtai will reduce the amount of greenhouse emissions and improve the air quality in the city.
  • The Xingtai District Heating Company is building a 20 km long main transmission line from the power plant outside the city to the city center. The main transmission line will also cover part of the heating demand for the suburban area it passes through.
  • Together with trusted partner Beijing CQV Trading Co. Ltd, Vexve has delivered DN 1400 butterfly valves with gears to the project. These valves have a diameter of 1.4 meters. 
  • Vexve valves and actuators were successfully installed during summer 2015.
"Vexve has been operating in the Chinese district heating industry for more than 20 years. A significant change is now taking place as China’s energy infrastructure developes at the forefront of new district energy solutions for future smart cities. It's our privilege to be part of this change," says Anne Savolainen, Vexve’s Export Director, Asia.
