Harbin Power System Engineering & Research Institute (CHPI) was set up on September 1978. It was a class-A institute directly under the Ministry of Machine Building Industry, and transformed and joined the China Machinery Industry Group Company in 1999. It was a wholly owned subsidiary of China National Electric Equipment Corporation in 2003. In 2011 it was transformed into limited corporation, and in 2017 it was a wholly owned subsidiary of SINOMACH Academy of Science & Technology Co, Ltd. The institute is a state-accredited new high-tech enterprise in first batch.
CHPI has been changed from a stated-owned scientific research institute into a high-tech enterprise combining with ‘scientific research, design and engineering’ and provide full-value chain one stand power plant specialized services through 40 years building and sustained reform and development.
CHPI takes unity, struggle, practicality and innovation as the spirit, take the market as the orientation and insist the scientific outlook on development, people first and sincerely management, promote independent innovation, improve the management level and ability of value creation. CHPI will switch to a new high-tech enterprise integrating scientific research, design, engineering, R&D of product and production gradually, and make contributions to Chinese electric power industry and the export of electrical and machinery products.
Now CHPI has 300 employee, and takes an area of 22700 square meter, covered area 21500 square meter, registered capital RMB36.3 million，fixed capital RMB40 million, invisible capital RMB22million, total capital is more than RMB240 million.
CHPI is mainly specialized in the system design, service and experimental research on thermal and hydro power plant equipment, efficient and clean combustion of coal, development and application of environmental protection technology and equipment, research of high and new technology and products, design and delivery of power plant control device, performance test of commercial guarantee for power plants and comprehensive evaluation test of new type units, and commission and supervision of power plant equipment.
CHPI has the national Mechanical Industry Power Equipment Performance Test Center (Harbin) and the power plant equipment supervision center. CHPI has the certification test laboratory with China metrology accreditation and the authentication on mechanical industry product, and coal analysis laboratory. It owns two provincial technical research center, i.e. Heilongjiang Power Station Big Data Research Center and Heilongjiang Energy-saving and EP Research Center for Coal Combustion, state-class Harbin Power Equipment Venture Center is built as well. CHPI publishes the Chinese core periodical on energy resources and power engineering Power System Engineering.
CHPI has finished 118 national key scientific research projects from the ‘Six-Five-Year” to ‘Eleven-Five-Year’, get 7 national scientific and technical achievement awards and 39 provincial or municipal scientific and technical achievement awards, and 37 patents and 4 new product certificates, and realize 45 engineering and industrialization projects.
In 40 years from founding, CHPI has finished 244 foreign power station projects in total, the service area covers 31 countries altogether in Asia, Africa and South America. In China, CHPI finished 215 domestic projects in total, the service area covers more than 30 provinces and area.
During long-term engineering practice, CHPI gradually forms honor and public relationship, talents and information advantage, it is famous in power plant field with it ‘CHPI’ brand, and has a professional and technical team proficient in specialized English, familiar with international standards and technology and management and execution of EPC project.
CHPI was ISO 9001-2000 Quality Management System certified to ensure the quality of products and service and improve user satisfaction. CHPI always adhere to the quality policy of ‘Well design and construction, build first class power engineering’; provide services to the user with whole heart.
