2nd Advanced Wind Technology and Investment Summit 2010
, [Sofitel Galaxy Nanjing] Jiangsu, China
Delivering products and services to China's fastest growing renewable energy market!
NANJING, China, 13-14 May 2010 – Nanjing, the capital of Jiangsu Province, located in the Yangtze River Delta region, is a major industrial and commercial base and one of China's biggest power consumers and shortage sufferers. The potential for wind power development is huge, as the province is blessed with 22 GW of potentially exploitable wind resources, nearly one-tenth of China's total. It is precisely because of their great wind energy potential that the coastal and offshore regions occupy a place in China's plan to build several 10 GW wind energy bases across the country.
After the tremendous success of the first event co-organized with Baotou People's Government of Inner Mongolia, Noppen moved the 2nd Advanced Wind Technology and Investment Summit 2010 to Nanjing in Jiangsu Province. Supported by Jiangsu Province Renewable Energy Association and Nanjing Wind Power Equipment Association, at this summit, over 180 senior directors and technicians from China's wind energy and wind turbine production bases came together to discuss China's newest industrial policies, advanced technology solutions for their plants growth, grid integration, and the most up-to-date progress reports on major projects in China.
The Vice Mayor of Nanjing, Luo Qun and Vice Director General of Jiangsu Science and Technology Department, Li Qi, gave outstanding speeches on the first morning of the event. They introduced the development of Nanjing's Wind Power Industry and the renewable energy development of the entire Jiangsu Province. Key speakers included Zhou Fengqi, Director General, Energy Research Institute of National Development & Reform Commission and Vice President of the China Energy Association who addressed the development of China's Wind Power industry, and gave a detailed analysis on the problems facing the entire industry. From the United Nations Industrial Development Organization, Project Director, Sun Jue explored the opportunities of wind industry cluster development. As a top speaker at the event, she introduced how UNIDO will assist technology development in the wind power industry by funding certain technologies.
A prominent speaker at the event was Mr. Hu Yuncheng, Deputy Chief Engineer, Dongfang Turbine Co Ltd who introduced the equipment manufacturing development of Dongfang Electric in the renewable energy sector. Stuart McKenzie from Mobil Industrial Lubricants presented on their wind power lubrication solution; Saverio Gaggerro, Bonfiglioli Drives Shanghai introduced wind power solutions for a worldwide customer approach; and from Koerber Schleifring Machinery was a joint speech by Tonny Liu and Zhang Zhi on Koerber Schleifring wind power solutions. Axel Wintermeyer, Vice President of KARL MAYER spoke of a new and innovative machine generation for the production of high performance non-crimp fabrics; from Henkel their Global Wind Energy Program Manager presented on adhesive technology for the next generation of blades and Johnny Xu, Marketing Manager from Moog Control Equipment described Moog's high performance wind energy solutions. Other companies also presented on their products including Etola Industrial Products, Cargotec Asia and INTERNORMEN Technology, who spoke on fluid condition monitoring systems for gearboxes.
Other topics discussed at the event were high performance wind turbine blades, wind power development at the Jiang Ning Development Zone and Smart Grid construction in China presented by Yin Ming, State Power Grid Energy Research Institute. On the afternoon of day one Nanjing Municipal Government hosted a welcome dinner which was a very successful networking occasion for all attendees. Noppen would like to express special thanks to all the 2nd Advanced Wind Technology and Investment Summit 2010 sponsors, supporters and high quality attendees who came together to make this a very successful and informative event.
