The engineering management business sector has the largest increase of 392.4% to RMB 224.5m ($34m); however, the corresponding gross profit has dropped 33.4% because the operating cost for this sector has risen seven times.

Its overseas business has soared 1,500% to nearly RMB 551m ($83.5m), accounting for merely 7% of its total revenue. The impressive increase is due to a very low overseas income of RMB 33.5m ($5m) in 2017.
The company has received orders for air separation plants and petrochemical plants in 2018 worth RMB 4.5bn ($689.3m), including two sets of carbon monoxide (CO) cryogenic separation plant for two different projects, a cryogenic separation plant for ethylene production for Weixing Petrochemicals, and four sets of 105,000 m3/h air separation plants for Zhejiang Petrochemicals.

Chengdu Shenleng Liquefaction Plant Co Ltd
Total revenue in 2018 has increased by 43.1% to RMB 342.8m ($52m), compared with 2017.
In 2018, manufacturing of LNG plants generated RMB 230.3m ($34.9m) in revenue, accounting for 67.2% of the total revenue, whilst manufacturing of air separation plants generated RMB 44.4m ($6.7m), 12.9% of the total revenue.
However, due to the provision for substantial bad debt, the gross profit plunged almost 654.4% to a considerable loss of RMB 135.4m ($20.5m). Net profit also plunged 657.5% to a loss of RMB 115.8m ($17.6m).
In 2018, the company has signed news contracts with a total value of about RMB 768m ($116.4m), mainly for natural gas liquefaction plants, air separation plants, LNG/L-CNG filling stations, LNG vaporisation stations, and town gas peak-shaving plants.
The equipment manufacturer recorded a 21.9% increase in their revenue to RMB 13bn ($19.7.53bn), compared with 2017. Profit from operations has grown 47.6% to RMB 1.1bn ($166.5m) whilst profit for the year has jumped 85% to RMB 782.5m ($118.6m).
The report states that, “During the year, the clean energy segment’s revenue rose by 21.5% to RMB 6bn ($913.7m) (2017: RMB 5bn ($751.7m)). This is mainly due to the increase in import of natural gas in China, especially LNG, which substantially boosted the demand for the group’s natural gas equipment and services in 2018. As a matter of fact, the group’s natural gas transportation and storage equipment benefited the most.”
“On the other hand, the group’s natural gas application equipment saw a slight decline in revenue which to some extent offset the revenue growth from storage and transportation equipment. At the same time, the revenue of group’s other clean energy equipment (other than natural gas), remained stable. The segment remains the top grossing segment and accounted for 46.2% of the group’s total revenue (2017: 46.3%).”
