Enterprise dynamics

1、The total investment is 910 million! The total length is 258 kilometers! The first long-distance high-pressure pipeline project for hydrogen mixing transmission in China was started

On March 9, the Baotou-Linhe Gas Pipeline Project of Inner Mongolia West Natural Gas Co., Ltd. was officially started in Linhe District, Bayannur City. This project is the first long-distance high-pressure pipeline project with hydrogen blending capacity in China invested and constructed by Western Natural Gas Company. The total investment of the project is 910 million yuan. The starting point of the construction project is Jiuyuan District, Baotou City, and it passes through Wuyuan County, Urat Front Banner, Bayannur City, and finally reaches Linhe District, with a total length of 258 kilometers, including 235 kilometers of trunk pipeline and 23 kilometers of branch pipeline. The design pressure of the pipeline is 6.3 MPa. A total of 10 valve stations and 3 stations are set up along the whole line, with a maximum gas transmission capacity of 1.2 billion cubic meters per year. It is expected to be completed and put into operation by the end of this year.

2、The hydrogen blue era strategy signed a contract with Korla to accelerate the layout of hydrogen energy storage industry in Xinjiang

On March 5, Shenzhen Hydrogen Blue Time Power Technology Co., Ltd. participated in the “Centralized Signing Ceremony of Cooperation Projects between National Korla Economic and Technological

Development Zone and Shenzhen Key Enterprises” held in Bazhou, and both parties signed a strategic cooperation agreement.
