Engineers at the Qingdao Baojian Technology Engineering Co, which is located in Jimo, have been working in shifts to meet the growing orders from around the globe.
The company invested 360 million yuan ($50.04 million) in a production project for a wind power transmission system in 2019.
In September 2019, the project was put into production. Now the company's products have been exported to more than 10 countries such as Germany, Finland and Spain, and have been implemented in more than 60 overseas wind power projects in the past three years.
"All the company's products are exported. The order value in 2020 reached 560 million yuan, and the order value in 2021 amounted to 660 million yuan. The total order value of 2021 has been reached in the first three quarters of this year," said Zhang Haiyong, head of the company's wind power assembly workshop.
In the first half of this year, the company achieved an output value of 439 million yuan, and the annual output value is expected to reach about 900 million yuan, according to Zhang.
