In early 2016, a groundbreaking ceremony for Haier’s smart interconnect factory for commercial air conditioners was held in Qingdao Sino-German Ecopark. Haier has launched the construction of an interconnect factory for magnetic bearing chillers. Covering a floor s
pace of 80,000 m2
, this factory boasts an annual production capacity of over 10,000 large chiller units and more than 350,000 air-side product units, making it the world’s largest interconnect factory for commercial air conditioners.
As the eighth interconnect factory set up by Haier Group, this new factory is planned to be put into operation in mid- October 2016, creating a full-process smart interconnected system for tailor-made service, addressing customers’ unique demands for commercial air conditioners with distinctive features available via on-line ordering, including full-process visualization and tailor-made solutions. Once operational, this interconnect factory will boost the penetration of energy saving commercial air conditioners across China, and will accelerate building energy saving retrofits worldwide, thus promoting green and sustainable development.
