The inauguration ceremony of Schneider Electric's Digital Industry Demonstration Park was held on May 27.

It marked the official completion of a digital industry demonstration park jointly built by the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area (BDA) and Schneider Electric, the new Ministry of Enterprises model of jointly built industrial parks.

The park is the start of a new model of co-construction of industrial parks between the BDA and leading foreign-funded enterprises.

The BDA Administrative Committee and Schneider Electric signed a comprehensive cooperation agreement last September. 

Pursuant to the agreement the Schneider Electric Digital Industry Demonstration Park was formally established after eight months of preparation.

It is composed of Schneider Electric's China Software R&D Center, an Electronics Industry Science and Technology Innovation Center, a new generation  environmentally-friendly gas medium-pressure equipment production line, and related supporting facilities.

Featuring low-carbon innovation, the park mass-produces a new generation of gas medium-pressure equipment that will contribute to the low-carbon development of China's power industry.

It is equipped with global R&D capabilities. 

The China software R&D center, together with other R&D centers, will build Schneider Electric's software-hardware-integrated digital R&D system.

In the future, more clients and partners will be introduced to create an open digital ecosystem and a digital industrial cluster. 

Twenty-four years ago, Schneider Electric established a factory in the BDA and started its first cooperation with the area. 

After 24 years of development, Schneider Electric's BDA plant has become its largest factory in the world, and 40 percent of its intelligent products are manufactured there.

The launch ceremony of Schneider Electric's new generation of environmentally-friendly gas medium-voltage equipment was also held on the same day. The core products include sulfur hexafluoride-free medium-voltage switchgear.
