Premier Li Keqiang visited Sany Heavy Industry Co Ltd, one of China’s leading machinery manufacturers, in Hunan province on June 12.
Sany Group has created a big data platform of the industrial internet. Connecting about 380,000 sets of industrial equipment, it accumulated more than a trillion data items under about 5,000 kinds of machine parameters, which helps form an “excavator index”.
Premier Li inquired about the country’s infrastructure construction performance indicated by the data, and praised Sany Group for creating the index, which offers important support for analysis of China’s macro-economy.
On his visit to the Sany Group maker space, Premier Li praised the company for creating the sharing and inclusive platform based on the industrial internet, gathering talented people within and outside the enterprise and greatly stimulating creativity.
Sany’s entrepreneurship and innovation platform has incubated many startups and innovative achievements. The Sany Heavy Truck program, one of the entrepreneurship and innovation projects, makes customized R&D for customers and has hit a record of selling 500 trucks in 53 seconds via the internet.
Premier Li said he hopes Sany Group will become a global leader in high-end manufacturing at an early date.
