Chinese Delegation CTG Visited the Niederfinow Ship Lift

On 30 May 2017, the Chairman of the China Three Gorges Corporation, Lu Chun, and his Chinese delegation visited the Niederfinow Ship Lift in Germany together with managers of Lahmeyer International. The President and CEO of the Lahmeyer Group, Martin Seeger, welcomed this important delegation. The China Three Gorges Corporation (CTG) is the world´s largest producer of hydroelectric power. Lahmeyer's design of the Niederfinow Ship Lift was the baseline for the design of the Three Gorges Ship Lift in China, with which Lahmeyer also participated. CTG and Lahmeyer expressed their intention to collaborate more closely in the future not only for hydropower projects, but also for solar and wind as well as energy transition projects. Before ending the day together with a Chinese dinner, the CTG delegation and the Lahmeyer managers had a meeting with ENGIE Germany in their head office in Berlin.

The next day, on 1 June 2017, the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel witnessed the signing of an agreement between CTG’s Chairman Lu Chun and the CEO of Voith Group Dr. Hubert Lienhard for further strategic cooperation in the hydropower business.

On 2 June two managers of Tractebel France accompanied Lu Chung and his delegation during the visit to the Strepy-Thieu Boat Lift in Belgium.
