This MoU confirms the aim of both parties to enter into a technical cooperation agreement to achieve mutually beneficial results in the heavy duty gas turbine area and set up a durable win-win partnership.

The agreement was signed on 20 July 2018, at a ceremony attended by the ambassador of Italy to China, Ettore Francesco Sequi, and the president of Shanghai Electric Group Huang Ou, SPIC chairman and party secretary Qian Zhimin and Ansaldo Energia’s CEO Giuseppe Zampini.

On 4 September 2017, Ansaldo Energia, in agreement with its Chinese partner SEC, signed an initial MoU with SPIC to start the negotiation of a possible collaboration agreement.

Ansaldo said that it is willing to support SPIC in its independent research and development work on heavy duty gas turbines and to provide specialised training and technical advice to SPIC research and development engineers.

The signing of this new MoU is expected to create the conditions for these two parties to reach a cooperation agreement in the future.

“The possible alliance with SPIC is part of Ansaldo Energia strategy to reinforce the already strong alliance with key players in the Chinese power generation sector with SEC, holding an equity stake of 40 per cent,” said Giuseppe Zampini.

“The Chinese National Plan for heavy duty gas turbines is a significant initiative for Ansaldo Energia and also has the support of the Italian Government, in a spirit of consolidating a long-lasting partnership with Chinese industry and in accordance with Chinese government strategy to develop independent Chinese gas turbine technology under SPIC guidance,” Zampini added.
