DU Zheng, Commissioning Manager for this project, commented on this milestone,

“Despite the hurdles posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, Tenova Technologies Tianjin fully exploited the capabilities and competence of its team in China and managed to successfully carry out the commissioning on schedule, allowing the project to enter the hot run test in a short time. I would like to thank the customer for its collaboration and our colleagues for the amazing work they did.”
