operators to purchase power from local wind farms at a
fixed pricing of between 51 to 61 cents RMB per KWH

High Rate of Return: Stable and clear policies ensure
high teens rate of return on equity for wind farm
operators

Planned Projects: NDRC plan to install at least 10GW

2. Metal Expansion Joints

12

Company Strength

Our Products are Necessary Components in Clean
Solution Systems:

Coke Dry Quench – We are the first domestic
manufacturer able to produce CDQ joints of equal quality
to Nippon Steel (previously dominated the China market).
Currently there are no strong competitors

Ultra High Voltage Transmission –  Our joints are
installed in gas insulated switchgear, an integral part of
ultra high voltage systems. GIS rated over 1 million volts
are only produced by a handful of companies worldwide
such as ABB, Toshiba, and Siemens.

Coke Ovens – Our connecting bend pipes replaced rigid
elbows which rupture easily, thus preventing dangerous
leaks and explosions

Other Metal Expansion Joints –Increase operating
efficiency and safety

Stringent Testing – Utilize X-Ray, ultrasonic, pneumatic,
hydraulic, and SF6 gas leakage test

High Performance – Withstand harsh operating conditions of
high temperature, high pressure, and highly corrosive
environments

CDQ System Reuses Waste Energy

13

Coke Dry Quench System is More Economical than Wet Quench system

Coking process is an integral part of steel
production

Coking process involves baking coal at high
temperatures of over 2,000

Traditionally, water is used to cool the coke,
releasing pollutants while wasting water and heat

The Coke Dry Quench (CDQ) system is an advanced
technology that blows gas in an enclosed system to
cool the hot coke

The hot gas is then reused to create electricity

As a result of CDQ:

Waste heat energy is recycled to generate
electricity, saving money and reducing carbon
emissions

Water is not wasted

Water is not contaminated with toxic pollutants

Air pollutants are not released

High Temperature CDQ Expansion Joints are critical components in the system that can
withstand expansion, contraction, and lateral movements due to high temperature, high
pressure and highly corrosive conditions

By installing 2 CDQ systems, a steel mill can save over $9 million in electricity, almost
4 million tons of water and prevent emission of over 100,000 mt CO

Higher Voltage is More Energy Efficient

15

Ultra High Voltage Systems Lead to Higher Energy Efficiency

Disk Spring Bellows Expansion Joints are needed inside the Gas Insulated
Switchgear to balance the thrust generated from internal pressure

Higher voltage systems allow more efficient
transportation of electricity and reduce the
amount of energy lost during transmission

By increasing the voltage from 500KV to
1000KV
, the amount of energy lost in the
transmission process is reduced by 4 times

Higher voltage results in less power lines,
towers, and substations

Gas Insulated Switchgear is a critical part
of the ultra high voltage systems (up to and
above 1,000KV)

China is in the process of upgrading the
grid system to the higher voltage system

Transmission efficiency is improved by 4X
when voltage is doubled

China Bellow Industry Investment Analyst and Research Report  2010  by Zero Power Intelligence Co. ,LTD.

Overall Metal Expansion Joints improve efficiencies, safety, and performance of the underlining systems

Coke Dry Quenching

11th Five Year Plan – Mandates the use of CDQs and the reutilization of exhaust heat in broader scope

Consolidation of China’s Steel Industry – Larger and better capitalized plants are more conscious about energy
consumption and environmental impact

Cost Savings – Implementation of CDQ system pays back for itself in a few years, providing incentives for steel mills to
install CDQs based purely on project economics

Gas Insulated Switchgear

High Growth in Generation Capacity – China’s power generating capacity increased from 443GW at the end of 2004
to an estimated 860GW at the end of 2009

Adoption of Ultra High Voltage Transmission – Long distances between energy source and energy consumption site
require efficient ultra high voltage transmission

Coke Oven

Stricter Safety Requirements – Underground coke oven gas is flammable and explosive; our connecting bend pipes
significantly reduce risk of explosion due to greater quality and flexibility. By using our products instead of rigid elbows
companies can minimize expenses due to work stoppage and work place casualties
