Achievements on Green Technology and Contributions to Energy Conservation
SINGAPORE, Dec. 28 -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE:CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), the leading manufacturer and distributor of diesel engines in China, announced today that its subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("Yuchai Machinery"), has won three major awards at the China International Summit Forum on the Auto Parts Industry in Beijing.
Yuchai Machinery's YC6L-40 National 4 diesel engine was awarded as one of the "Best 10 New Technology Products." As the only engine producer selected by the committee, Yuchai Machinery won the "Best 10 Chinese Bus Industry Brands" category. In addition, Mr. Qiwei Wu, Vice President of Yuchai Machinery, was cited as one of the "Ten Most Admired Individuals in the Chinese Bus Industry."
Mr. Wu commented, "We are on our way to achieve record high diesel engine sales with over 400,000 units in 2007. With our high-quality products and superior sales and marketing network in China, Yuchai Machinery continues to supply the fast-growing Chinese commercial vehicle market as the largest independent diesel engine producer. While we continue to grow sales, we also focus on 'green' development and resource conservation as one of our key growth strategies. As a role model of the Chinese diesel engine industry, we aim to build Yuchai Machinery into a global diesel engine powerhouse."
After developing China's first diesel engine for economy cars, China's first Euro 4 emission compliant diesel engine, the 4-cylinder ISG hybrid bus engine and China's first LNG engine, Yuchai Machinery once again first responded to the Chinese government's policy on energy conservation and emission control by rolling out China's first Euro 5 electric control diesel engine in early December 2007. On the production side, Yuchai Machinery not only successfully established a wastewater processing station, but also installed dust removal systems at two die casting plants to meet the national environmental wastewater and gas standards. Due to tight cost control management programs and an energy conservation plan, in the first ten months of 2007, Yuchai Machinery managed to reduce overall cost per product as compared to same period in 2006. Yuchai Machinery also exceeded government quotas on coal conversion by nearly 2,800 metric tons.
