Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Company Attends Opening Ceremony of Longxing Central Kindergarten in Sichuan Province, People’s Republic of China

  10/1/2010

Representatives from Alcan Cable’s China operations recently attended the grand opening ceremony for the Longxing Central Kindergarten located in the city of Chongzhou, Sichuan Province. The kindergarten was rebuilt after the 2008 earthquake from donations made by member organizations of the Swiss Chinese Chamber of Commerce.

Alcan Cable donated over 1,900 meters of STABILOY® type ZB-ACWU90 and ZC-TC90 aluminum alloy electrical conductors for the low-voltage power distribution system of the school. Alcan Cable’s professional product engineers provided on-site technical support and installation guidance throughout the construction phase of the project.

“Alcan Cable’s corporate philosophy is to support the local communities where we conduct business, especially when faced with a disaster like the Sichuan earthquake,” said Ivan Salamin, General Manager, Alcan (Tianjin) Alloy Products Company. “Alcan Cable has long upheld the principles of social responsibility and sustainability. We hope our participation in this project will help establish an educational facility that will benefit the children of Longxing Township for years to come."

The newly rebuilt kindergarten, which can accommodate over 300 children, consists of a unique design of several instructional buildings connected by indoor and outdoor activity areas. The use of modern, handicap facilities have created a convenient living environment for disabled children injured by the earthquake disaster. The school incorporates sustainable design concepts with the use of Mao bamboo, which is abundant in the local area, as decorative material for the campus and inside the buildings. The environmentally friendly STABILOY aluminum alloy cable is installed throughout the low-voltage power distribution system.
