TISCO "Stainless Pedestal" Contributes to Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge

By Chen Yan UpDate 2018-10-24

On the morning of October 23, the opening ceremony of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge was held in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province. Xi Jinping, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, president of the State, and chairman of the Central Military Commission attended the ceremony and announced the official opening of the bridge.

The Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge spans the Lingding Sea, connects Hong Kong to the east, and connects Zhuhai and Macau to the west. It is the first large-scale cross-sea traffic project jointly built by Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao. There is "super innovation" behind "super engineering." The construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge is extremely difficult, and it took 14 years from design to construction. During the construction of the bridge, new materials, new processes, new equipments, and new technologies emerged one after another. This project saw over 400 patents created, filling blanks in many fields. Among them, the duplex stainless steel reinforced bars independently developed by TISCO successfully replaced the traditional steel and were applied in the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge project, realizing the first batch application of duplex stainless steel in the construction of domestic bridges. This application not only greatly extends the life expectancy of bridge, but also effectively promotes the upgrading of construction materials for China's cross-sea bridges.

The news of the opening of the bridge spreads throughout the steel city. Members of the TISCO production and research team of duplex stainless steel reinforced bars, which has long been looking forward to the opening of the bridge, took a look at the grand opening ceremony of the bridge and listened to the important speech by General Secretary Xi. They were so excited and expressed their own inner feelings.

"Time flies, from material research and development to today's bridge opening, it's almost 10 years. We are happy, so happy. We are engaged in technology, and contribute to a project like this, we feel more than worth. General Secretary Xi said that socialism comes from hard work, and the new era also comes from hard work. We researchers are very excited. We must continue to carry forward the spirit of hard work and dedication, develop more and better high-tech special materials, and make new contributions to the motherland." Wang Huimian, the head of the R&D team of the duplex stainless steel reinforced bars and senior engineer of the technology center, said excitedly.

 As the packaging and delivery of first batch of products, everyone was watching the loaded truck leaving slowly, as if seeing off their daughter married afar. When the production schedule was tense, the factory manager, technicians, and operators were all on the scene around clock. It was really hard. Now the bridge is open to traffic, and I’m very excited. At present, our factory is implementing the upgrading projects. In the future, we will be able to produce better quality products and win glory for the country.” Yan Shicai, member of R&D team of duplex stainless steel reinforced bars, chief of production&technology division of stainless steel wire mill, said.

Recalling the days and nights when we developed the market in the past, it was filled with the joy of struggle. As a marketing staff, we must also sincerely thank our technicians and managers and workers on the production line, who are our strong backing. At the same time, through serving the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge project, we have trained our team and established the TISCO brand. The following projects like Sino-Malaysia Friendship Bridge and Hong Kong Tseung Kwan O - Lam Tin Tunnel have all used our TISCO stainless steel rebar. I believe our products will surely go further and further, and continue to contribute TISCO's strength to China's manufacturing." Cao Jiaochan, member of R&D team of duplex stainless steel reinforced bars, senior sales manager of marketing center, proudly said.

Leaving the achievements behind, TISCO people embark on their new journey. The words from the hearts express the voice of TISCO people who insist on independent innovation and are determined to serve the country. TISCO people left a strong stroke in the construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, but this can only represent the past. We believe that TISCO people will be able to carry forward their fine traditions, be brave in pioneering and innovating, take new and greater steps in the high-quality development in the new era, and contribute TISCO's wisdom and strength to realize the Chinese dream of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation.
