Supplying steam and power inside Chongqing Chemical Industrial Park

Veolia has designed a cogeneration plant that generates steam and electricity to meet the needs of 81 companies in the Chongqing chemical industrial park.

In December 2001, the municipal government in Chongqing, China, gave its go-ahead for the creation of the Chongqing Changshou Chemical Industrial Park, initially spanning 31.3 square kilometers. The city’s goal was to develop an integrated industrial park that would bring together all of the companies in the region that specialize in gas chemistry, petrochemicals, raw materials, fine chemicals and new materials.

By the start of 2016, 81 companies, including a number of Fortune 500 firms, had established operations at the park. Veolia (Changyang) was commissioned to design, build and operate a cogeneration plant capable of meeting the park’s steam and electricity needs.
