Sarlin helps Chinese factory go green
Finnish company Sarlin has closed a deal to provide one of China’s biggest steel factories with its compressed air management system, which will enhance the factory’s energy efficiency.
Constructed with the latest technology, Shougang Jingtang’ state-of-the-art steel factory will be equipped with the air compression technology of Sarlin, a Finnish family-owned technology provider. The current air compression system alone swallows 250 000MWh yearly, which is roughly equivalent to the annual average consumption of 11 000 Helsinki residents. According to Sarlin, the installation of the system will pay itself back in energy savings in under a year.
“We’ve previously supplied several systems for the Chinese industry. The Shougang air compression system is the biggest for which our management system will be used,” says CEO Kari Jäminki. “The growth outlook and potential for improving energy efficiency in air compression in China are vast and we will be doubling down in our efforts in the Chinese markets.”
Sarlin was founded 60 years ago and, in addition to air compression management systems, it offers automation and sustainable energy technology solutions.
