The grand event was witnessed by Jiang Hongjiang, Deputy Party Chief of Langfang City, Sun Jiadong, Chief Designer of Beidou Satellite Navigation System and Academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Zhang Rongjiu, Director of GNSS & LBS Association of China and its Secretary General Miao Qianjun, Wang Tianxi, Director of China Gas Association and its Secretary General Chi Guojing, Cheung Yip Sang, President of ENN Group, Han Jishen, President of ENN Energy and representatives from companies who had built and adopted the Beidou precise service. The awarding ceremony of ENN’s demonstrative implementation of “100 Cities, 100 Connections, 100 Applications” Beidou Precise Service Network was also held in the same event.
In 2014, initiated by the GNSS & LBS Association of China and China Gas Association, the “100 Cities, 100 Connections, 100 Applications” project kicked off and was firstly implemented in city-gas industry. Deeply integrated with the Beidou satellite system and cutting-edge technologies including Big Data, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things etc., the project provided more precise location information for the construction, daily management, maintenance, emergency repair etc., of gas pipeline network, unfolding a new era for the improvement of the intelligent management and operation of city-gas pipeline network. Beidou Precise Service Network has set up service stations and built a connected network in more than 10 cities in 9 provinces in China up to date, demonstrating wide implementation of such advanced system in China’s city-gas pipeline network management.
ENN’s comprehensive implementation of “100 Cities, 100 Connections, 100 Applications” Beidou Precise Service Network will help improve its intelligent and fine operation and management and provide Big Data platform support for ENN’s “Internet Plus” energy strategy. Meanwhile, the implementation marked the beginning of the large-scale application of the Beidou system in gas industry, which on the other hand provided broader prospect of the implementation of Beidou system in the market.
After signing the agreement, ENN will gradually build Beidou Precise Service Stations in over 140 city-gas projects nationwide, connect the stations with Beidou’s national precise service network and integrate ENN’s existing GPS application into Beidou Precise Service Network to achieve better results. ENN will also introduce Beidu facilities and technologies to all aspects of its city-gas business including engineering, operation, safety, customer service etc., fully optimize its businesses leveraging the convergence of internet technology and IT system, thus providing solid foundation for the transformation, upgrade and sustainable development of its project companies.
As the “100 Cities, 100 Connections, 100 Applications” project successfully implemented in city-gas pipelines, relevant government authorities including the National Development and Reform Commission, State Administration of Work Safety etc. highly emphasized the project and offered great support. The National Administration of Surveying, Mapping and Geo-information listed the project in its eight key generally deployed projects in 2015.
After the signing ceremony, Sun Jiadong, Zhang Rongjiu and Wang Tianxi were shown around ENN accompanied by management including Han Jishen, Vice President of ENN Energy. The guests spoke highly of ENN’s development during the tour.
On May 20, the two sides signed an MOU. At the signing ceremony, ENN Vice President Li Shuwang and the sales director of SAMCHULLY respectively delivered speeches to express the good will of entering long-term partnership. Under the MOU, the two will deepen cooperation in many aspects like market information sharing, Sino-Korean pilot project planning, national and industry policies, LNG supply, construction of facilities etc to seek and center on grand projects, jointly boost the application of LNG fuel and development of LNG ships in China and Korea.
SAMCHULLY is the biggest downstream city fuel distributor in Korea, specializes on three key sectors like energy distribution and projects, environmental protection technologies, cultural property, with similar business units like ENN. The company has a share of 15% in the Korean market with annual sales over RMB20 billion, annual gas sales over 4 billion cubic meters. This time, the two sides reached a consensus in many business sectors, meaning the Sino-Korean two-way liner project has made substantial progress in implementation.
Lan Chengjun has been working at installation, equipment repair and maintenance etc since entering gas industry in 2003. He is highly concerned about clients and considers providing the best services for clients as his persevering pursuit. He also turned up at emergency sites immediately and helped his colleagues to tackle one danger after another; he is also a good learner and encourages his colleagues to conduct in-depth research into their business. He always works with all of his efforts and honest smiles as well at any posts.
His colleagues said that they would take Lan Chengjun as a role model to keep making progress at their work and try to be the best always.
To ensure the success of the whole shooting process, Yang Chenglin firstly confirmed that the journalists didn’t have lighters, matches and phones etc on them. They also wore professional working outfit and safety helmets. They entered the site after all preparations were made to start their one-day experience.
Mr. firstly took journalists to the Special Tank area and told the journalists that the area is committed to checking whether the pressure and temperature of tanks are normal and whether they leak gas. These journalists also learned the key functions of the tank. Afterwards, they can to the pressure adjustment area. “There are lots of pipes intertwining with each other. They fall into two sections like first, second-grade pressure adjustment and sub high pressure adjustment. When the upstream gas enters the station, it will successively pass the first and second-grade pressure adjustment and then the high pressure pipes for commercial users. These pipes must stay normal in pressure and temperature,” said Mr. Yang to journalists. These journalists listened attentively and made checks by themselves under the guidance of Mr. yang.
When the experience was almost over, Yang Chenglin said proudly: “The station was founded 13 years ago and no safety accident has occurred, with no gas leakage at all!””We have learned a lot from the experience today. The work seems simple but in effect needs great attention and carefulness. Every post has very harsh requirements and allows no error at all,” said the journalist.
The video about the experience will be broadcast at the Bangduankou TV Station to show the journalists’ experience at the ENN gas station and also further spread the good service image of the company.
