Cable Business

The Group operates the cable business under the 「Pujiang Cable」 brand. It is a leading professional manufacturer of bridge cables in China and a major manufacturer of long-span bridge cables domestically and internationally. The prefabricated parallel wire strands (「PPWS」) and slings will be mainly used for the main cable strands and slings of the upper structure of long-span suspension bridges. Cable-stayed cables are mainly used for various cable-structured projects such as cable stayed bridges, tied arch bridges, mast towers and roofs. Steel cables for building structures are mainly used in projects such as building venues, space structures, membrane structures, and large-scale exhibition centers that use cables as stress components.

The Group’s products have been used or are currently used to build the three famous super-long-span bridges in China, i.e. Humen No.2 Bridge, Xihoumen Bridge and Runyang Yangtze River Bridge. In addition, we were also the first in China to produce HDPE (high-density polyethylene) protective stay cables for cable-stayed bridges and PPWS for suspension bridges main cables.

The Group’s main production base is located in Xitang County, Zhejiang Province, China, with two suspension cable production lines and two cable production lines. The length of the main factory building of the main cable strand production line for the suspension cables is about 450 meters, which can satisfy the manufacture of the main cable strands of the 3,500-meter main span suspension bridge. The total length of the cable production line and the wharf in the plant is about 1,000 meters. The tension platform has a length of 848 meters and a tension capacity of 3,000 tons, which can meet the cable manufacturing requirements of a 1,500-meter main span cable-stayed bridge. The Group also has a wharf yard of nearly 15,000 square meters, which can store more than 750 coils of finished cable products. The Group’s wharf is also equipped with a large-tonnage gantry crane that can dock 1,000-ton transport ships, and can meet the current transportation requirements for all types of cable-stayed bridges, suspension bridges, cable-related products both domestically and internationally.

According to Frost & Sullivan, we have supplied cables to 35.1% of the super-long-span bridges constructed in China between 1991 and 2017, of which we have supplied bridge cables for 52.9% of the super-long-span suspension bridges and 30.0% of the super-long-span cable-stayed bridges in China. We also ranked second in terms of bridge cable sales revenue in 2017 according to Frost &Sullivan.
