The Plant was Resources Commission General Machinery Co., Ltd. built on March 28, 1946. After foundation of the People’s Republic of China, it was named by the state Shanghai Turbine Works, China’s first plant which designed and manufactured turbines. In 1955, China’s first 6MW turbine was successfully manufactured by using Czechoslovak technology and the plant was reputed as the “cradle of turbine in China”. In December 1995, Shanghai Turbine Co., Ltd. was established with itself as the controlling shareholder as a Joint-Venture with Westinghouse. In 1999 the equity of Westinghouse was transferred to Siemens and the plant became a global cooperative partner of Siemens. With an area of ca.1 km?, the plant has nearly 1200 sets of main equipment. Now affiliated to Shanghai Electric Power Generation Equipment Co., Ltd., a Joint-Venture of Shanghai Electric and Siemens, the plant reached the annual production output of 36000MW in 2006, which ranked first in the world. Its domestic market share approached nearly 40% and its products entered international markets.
The plant absorbed others’ advantages and innovated based on introduction of the world’s advanced technology and management methods. 1000MW-class nuclear turbine and heavy duty gas turbine were developed and manufactured. Introduced 300MW turbine reached the world’s advanced level and was awarded the only gold quality prize of national high quality products in China’s mechanical industry. 600MW-class turbine accomplished remarkable achievements. After operation of the first 1000MW-class ultra-supercritical turbine, which reached world’s advanced level, it was awarded “the gold prize in China International Industry Fair 2007” and “the special prize of China Mechanical Industry Science and Technology 2009”.
STP is the first plant in China which has passed the qualification of ISO9001 Quality Management System. Besides, it has passed the qualification of ISO14001 Environmental Management System and OHSMS Occupational Health and Safety Management System. STP has been honored with “National Model Enterprise in Establishing Harmonious Labor Relationships”, “National Advanced Enterprise in Implementing Performance Excellence Model”, “Home of National Model Staff”, “National Excellent Unit in Enterprise Culture Construction”, “Top 500 Enterprises in China Mechanics”, “Leading Enterprise in China Industry”, “National Advanced Unit in Enterprise Culture Construction in Mechanical Industry”, “National Model Unit in Mechanical Industry”, “Party Organization Model in Shanghai” , etc.
Shanghai Turbine Plant now takes the personal inspection of General-Secretary Hu Jintao on July 28, 2004 as the motive force and is innovating and transforming to contribute to the development of power generation equipment manufacturing industry.
