We place great emphasis on our research and development capabilities. We have 297 engineers and technicians working on research and development projects. All of them hold a college degree and have accumulated experience of eight years on average in the wire and cable industry.
We established a research workstation in conjunction with the China Academy of Engineering and China Academy of Sciences as well as a state postdoctoral research workstation. We have also participated in the drafting and formulating of 53 national industry standards, including “Standard On Rated Voltage 0.6/1kV Rubber Insulation and Sheathing Wind Power with Twist-resistant Flexible Cables” for the manufacturing processes for power cables, wires and cables for electrical equipment and bare wires. We had developed 79 high technology products that are material to our business in the PRC and had participated in more than 35 provincial and national projects. We also had 6 National Key New Products and have obtained 438 patents in the State Intellectual Property Office of the PRC.
In addition, Jiangnan Cable was one of the first seven companies in the PRC cable industry that were accredited as a State Key High Technology Enterprise under the revised standard of the State Torch Program by the Torch High Technology Industry Development Center, the Ministry of Science and Technology.
We have developed and introduced different innovative products, including the following, among others:
|ACSR wire for ultra high voltage direct current transmission lines of maximum rated voltage of up to ±800kV||High efficiency||Long distance and high capacity power transmission|
|Supporting wire with expanded diameter||Energy saving transmission||Long distance transmission|
|EPR insulated cable for wind power of rated voltage of 0.6/1kV||Flexible and applicable to windy area transmission||Wind power systems (such as a power converter and generator)|
|Control, instrumentation and communication cable for offshore oil platforms||Environmentally-friendly, flame-retardant, fireproof, no halogen, anticorrosion and water proof||Power cable for offshore oil platform|
|Flame-retardant power cable for railways||LSZH, anticorrosion, flame-retardant, UV- proof, waterproof, low toxicity, environmentally-friendly, safe and highly stable||Railway cable|
