Harbin Electric Corporation (HE) evolved from six of China’s 156 key construction projects aided by the former USSR during the period of China’s first Five-Year Plan (1953-1957). The company is China’s earliest R&D and manufacturing base of power generation equipment. Now HE has become one of the 51 state-owned backbone enterprises supporting national security and the lifelines of the national economy.

As the ‘eldest son’ of China’s equipment manufacturing industry, HE has established numerous monuments throughout the history of national development of power generation equipment. In the past 60 years, HE has been dedicating itself to the prosperity and development of China’s equipment manufacturing industry. With great efforts, it has developed a series of leading products that ranges from nuclear power, hydropower, coal power, gas power, ships’ power plants and electric-driven devices to turnkey power plant projects, in which the core technical competencies have reached the world’s advanced level.

Currently, HE boasts a national enterprise technical center, 3 national engineering research centers, 2 national key laboratories, 4 postdoctoral workstations and 2 academician workstations. By 2016, HE had 1,934 patents in force, including 386 patents for invention.

By 2016, HE’s registered capital was 1.99 billion yuan ($312.5 million) and its total assets were 72 billion yuan. HE has manufactured power generation equipment with installed capacity up to 390 million KW, provided equipment for over 500 power plants nationwide and worldwide, and exported its products to over 40 countries and regions in Asia, Africa, Europe and South America.

Social responsibility

HE is committed to continuing as an environmentally-friendly enterprise and a big harmonious family, pursuing amicable co-existence among people, between man and nature, and between man and society, building a good atmosphere of mutual understanding, trust and care and close cooperation between the natural and human environments.

HE continuously manages and publicizes social responsibility and sticks to the “whole-process, all-round and total-member principle” to advance it. In ensuring responsible practice the company continuously summarizes and extracts excellent management cases and typical experiences of corporate social responsibility, and establishes and perfects relevant responsibility systems, to promote all-round integration and total-member participation in social corporate responsibility and contribute to sustained and stable development of itself and society at large.
