DKSH and China Medical System Holdings Limited (CMS), a leading pharmaceutical services provider, have signed an agreement for the transfer of Combizym and Hirudoid, two pharmaceutical brands owned and marketed by DKSH in China.

ABB to Provide Power Products for ChinaÕs Large Offshore Wind Farm

by swisscham in Engineering, Manufacturing

A gust of sea wind that can light tens of thousands of households – this is becoming a reality in some of ChinaÕs coastal areas. Some 10 kilometers off the coast of Xiangshui County, a series of wind turbines with fan blades longer than 60 meters are being installed. Here is the Jiangsu Xiangshui Offshore 200 MW Wind Farm Demonstration Project, ChinaÕs first wind power project that transmits power to onshore areas via an offshore transformer substation. The Xiangshui Offshore Wind Farm will feature ChinaÕs first offshore substation equipped with ABBÕs full range of power equipment in a relay station that delivers wind power to onshore transformer stations. The system will decrease the power loss caused by long-distance transmission and improve the transmission capability. The voltage created by wind turbines will be boosted from 35 kV to 220 kV, then transmitted onshore via undersea AC cables, constantly delivering clean wind power to the grid of Northern Jiangsu.
