Industrial air systems meet Chinese energy savings targets
In mid- September TM Systems, the Finnish industrial energy efficiency company, established a new factory in Kunshan, China, doubling production capacity in the world’s hottest energy market.
The 12th Chinese five year plan has allocated over 300 billion euros in investment for the green economy.China is investing 40 billion euros just in the forest industry alone. In modernizing the branch the emphasis is not only on effectiveness, but also energy savings and reduced emissions. ‘This is exactly the kind of market we want to invest our technical knowledge in’, says Markus Hallapuro, Managing Director of parent company TM System Finland Ltd.
TM Systems specialize in delivering tailored industrial air systems, which can considerably reduce production energy consumption while at the same time increasing volume. The company is meeting increased demand for its services with a new production plant, which serves both its own projects in the pulp and paper industry as well as clients from other industries.
The new production facility allows the company to offer high quality, cost effective production to third parties. ‘TM Systems can produce ready made products, partial systems and also work together with clients from design and process modeling through to production’ says Riku Saari, Managing Director of TM System (China) Air Technology Co, Ltd.
The main responsibility for designing the company’s technical solutions is in Finland, where the parent company employs about 30 people. Finnish engineers are also responsible for quality control at the Kunshan factory.
‘Many companies have had bad experiences of Chinese production. Variable quality and unreliable delivery are common problems and continuous professional quality control is a necessity’, says Riku Saari.
The expanded China factory specializes in producing demanding Acid Proof Stainless and aluminum sheet metal fabrications. The factory has a 13 x 3,4 m pickling pool enabling it to handle large items and deliver better quality end products.
In the future TM Systems will increasingly serve the mining- and energy industry in which they continue to expand. The company expects production at the Kunshan factory to grow by 40 percent during over the next few years.
