One engine offline in 45 seconds! Great Wall series core parts products are here
“157 processes, one engine off the assembly line in 45 seconds!” On the morning of June 30, in the Hive Yichuang Yangzhong Industrial Park, the production line was fully fired and the employees were full of energy. On the same day, the first engine of Hive Power System and the signing ceremony of the project were held. After more than 400 days of hard work, the power project of Great Wall Motor Hive Yichuang Yangzhong Industrial Park was officially put into production.
The Hive Yichuang Yangzhong Industrial Park is one of the major projects in Jiangsu Province introduced by Jiangsu Yangzhong. In July 2018, Great Wall Motors and Yangzhong joined hands. The Hive Yichuang Automobile’s core parts project became an important part of Great Wall Motor’s layout in the “Yangtze River Era” ; In February 2019, the engine project of Honeycomb Power (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd. broke ground, starting from the flat ground to the first product launch. Honeycomb Yichuang once again set a “Hive” speed in promoting the industrialization of core technology products.
It is reported that the engine off the assembly line this time is an EB engine with a planned production capacity of 250,000 units/year. From July to December 2020, the estimated production capacity will reach 80,000 units, with an output value of nearly 1 billion yuan.
In addition to the engine project that has been put into production, the construction of other projects in the industrial park is also proceeding in an orderly manner. The transmission project and the electric drive project are expected to be put into operation in October 2020, and the intelligent steering and die-casting project is expected to be put into operation in March 2021. It will form a production capacity of one million units, and will become one of the important production bases of China’s automotive key parts and components, providing assistance for the optimization and upgrading of the global automotive supply chain system.
The establishment of the Hive Yichuang Yangzhong Industrial Park has successively attracted many high-end auto parts projects in Yangzhong, further extending the city’s auto parts industry chain. At the event of the day, two industrial chain supporting projects with an annual output of 100,000 units of EG01H/EG08B engine assembly project and high-end tool project with a single investment of over 100 million yuan were signed. It is expected that the annual revenue will reach nearly 1 billion yuan after the production is completed. Taxes are nearly 30 million yuan.
