XCMG reçoit le prix national aux avancées scientifiques et technologiques après avoir remporté le « Red Dot Award » pour la conception du design

XUZHOU, Chine, 13 janvier 2016 / PRNewswire / — XCMG a reçu une deuxième récompense lors des Prix nationaux aux avancées scientifiques et technologiques 2015 qui ont été organisés le 8 janvier à Pékin. Ce prix récompense les technologies clés de l’entreprise et l’application qu’elle fait des équipements mobiles de levage et de montage sur des projets de construction de grande envergure.

Les prix nationaux des avancées scientifiques et technologiques 2015 ont été attribués à des secteurs allant de grands projets de construction aux sciences médicales, à l’agriculture et à l’industrie pharmaceutique. Parmi les lauréats de cette année, on trouve China Railway, Huawei et ZTE.

Seul projet gagnant dans la machinerie de construction, XCMG a révolutionné les opérations de levage traditionnelles, faites avec des équipements lourds présentant de grands risques, en recherchant et en développant de nouveaux équipements mobiles et intégrés de levage et de montage qui permettent un énorme tonnage et font preuve d’une très grande efficacité et une très grande fiabilité.

« Nous constatons une demande croissante du marché pour des machineries de construction de grande taille et de taille colossale. Réussir l’intégration, la modularisation et l’intellectualisation de pointe de la construction de pré-ingénierie est donc un grand défi à l’échelle internationale », a déclaré Chen Xiangdong, directeur de projet chez XCMG. « Au cours des cinq dernières années, nos équipes de recherche ont conçu des machineries et des équipements adaptés aux besoins pratiques de nos clients après avoir consulté ces derniers, et elles ont développé des ensembles d’équipement de hissage mobile de grande envergure pour modifier et transformer en profondeur les traditionnelles opérations de levage et poursuivre les progrès techniques dans l’industrie. »

Par exemple, la grue sur chenilles XGC88000, qui a atteint une capacité maximale de levage de 88 000 tonnes/mètre et une charge de hissage de 3 600 tonnes, peut considérablement raccourcir le temps de construction de quatre ou six mois à quelques heures, tout en garantissant à la fois la qualité et la sécurité de la construction.

XCMG est leader dans l’industrie des équipements pour la construction et les activités minières grâce à ses technologies et produits de pointe pour la machinerie de construction. L’entreprise explore également de nouvelles conceptions axées sur la préservation de l’environnement et les ressources renouvelables. En octobre 2015, l’Institut de recherche de XCMG a gagné le prestigieux « Red Dot Award » à la conception du design pour sa conception innovante d’un moteur à poudre, un modèle respectueux de l’environnement qui utilise des déchets et des ressources renouvelables, qui brûle complètement la poudre et ne produit du dioxyde de carbone et de l’eau que pendant le processus de combustion. »

« La forte capacité de recherche et développement de XCMG est la clé de notre succès mondial comme leader en machinerie de construction. Il est aussi de notre responsabilité d’appuyer des idées avancées qui sont essentielles à la construction d’un avenir meilleur », a déclaré Wang Min, le président de XCMG.

<title> Mozambique banana fungus poses threat to SA plantations</title>

A serious outbreak of a fungal disease which has been responsible for decimating millions of hectares of banana plantations across the world, could now pose a threat to South Africa’s R1.5 billion banana industry.

Panama Disease has been present in plantations in north-eastern Mozambique’s Nampula province for the past two years.

According to Altus Viljoen, a pre-eminent plant pathologist from the University of Stellenbosch, the outbreak is spreading rapidly across the Metocheria Farm, a 3 000 hectare farm owned by Norwegian company Norfund.

“The outbreak at Metocheria is very serious. With the flooding at the beginning of 2015 the fungus has been spread almost everywhere on the farm, and most likely also down the Monapo River,” said Viljoen.

Viljoen said that the disease could spread to more banana plantations in the Nampula province and then into Africa, where it may threaten food security.

“The outbreak in northern Mozambique most certainly poses a risk to all its neighbouring countries. A major means of spread is water, as well as planting material and soil attached to shoes and vehicles from the farm. South Africans had been visiting the affected farms in Mozambique in the past, and are still visiting the farm to do business. If proper biosecurity is not introduced, South African growers might be affected,” Viljoen explained.

According to the Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, bananas contribute more than 50% of the total gross value of subtropical fruits in South Africa, amounting to around R1.5 billion.

Panama Disease, which is caused by the Fusarium fungus, is a soil pathogen which infects the root system and goes on to colonise the entire plant.

In the 1950s, the disease wiped out almost all of the banana plantations in Central and South America. Despite growers switching to a new banana variety called the Cavendish, a new strain of the disease appeared in the 1990s, affecting large areas of South East Asia and spreading to northern Australia.

In Mozambique, a collaborative group of scientists is assisting the affected farms with research and information on how to deal with the outbreaks.

However, Viljoen said that he is surprised at how little is being done by the Banana Growers’ Association of South Africa (BGASA) to protect South Africa’s industry from the disease.

“I have been invited everywhere in the world to help people protect the industry, but BGASA has not met with me to develop a biosecurity strategy for the country,” he said.

BGASA chairman, Kobus Lourens, responded by saying that the chances of South Africa getting the disease were slim.

“Yes, there is a chance of it spreading to South Africa, because if it got to Mozambique it can get anywhere. But to put it in perspective the site is 2 500km from us. It could be brought to South Africa by someone that takes plant material or soil, but it would have to be intentional,” said Lourens.

Lourens added that Viljoen may be undervaluing the efforts BGASA has put into strategies to control the disease.

“I have met with more than one plant protection officer in South Africa and they are well aware of the outbreak. The Department of Agriculture does have security measures in place, but only when we have an outbreak here or closer to us the measures will kick in. Nothing will be done while the disease is still in northern Mozambique,” Lourens said.

Joyce Mkhonto (53) a fruit seller in Mbombela, said that bananas are her best-selling product.

“If there is a disease it means I won’t be able to sell bananas anymore. It will have a heavy effect on my business,” Mkhonto said.
