German firms to help build low-carbon town

TWO German construction companies signed cooperation accords yesterday with a management department in eastern China's Jiangsu Province to help build a 100,000-people low-carbon demonstration town on the southern bank of the Yangtze River.

According to Xue Liang, head of the management commission of Lingang New Town, Jiangyin City, the planned low-carbon town will be built in three to five years.

The project, dubbed Lingang New World, will be located at Shengang of Jiangyin, with the first-phase construction covering an area of 2.63 square kilometers.

Major functional blocks of the first phase will embrace administrative and commerce, research and development and education, financial service and exhibition and conference, recreation and living service areas.

DEKRA AG and I.Design Engineering Architect Holding Group (I.DEA) would provide technical support for the planned low-carbon town.

I.DEA will offer central energy supply solutions for the new town, according to Claus Treppte, a company official.

It will adopt geothermal, solar energy and other advanced energy technologies to ensure sustained energy efficiency for the town.

Xue said that low-carbon industry had taken shape in Jiangyin. At the end of 2009, the city's low-carbon industrial park ushered in a group of new-energy companies from abroad and other parts of China.
