The Shenshui Eco-Technology Innovation City (SEIC) is the first new industry city in Shenyang which CFLD invested for development. Located in the heart of the Shenyang Economic Zone, SEIC is the most important new city in southern Shenyang, with the planned area of 35 square kilometers, which includes the center of six square kilometers.
Since December 30, 2011 when SEIC and the Sujiatun District Government officially signed a strategic cooperation agreement, CFLD has endeavored to build SEIC into a benchmark of new industry cities in North China and into a model of academy cities in China. By the end of 2015, the total investment had amounted to RMB6.4 billion. After nearly four years of development, SEIC has actively participated in the construction of fusing industries with the city in the District and in the application for the planning of the Shenyang National Free Trade Zone. The key projects have now been included in the "13th Five-Year Plan” of the province and the city.
In the industry development, SEIC has continued to seek a breakthrough in leading the automobile manufacturing industry, and has attempted to carry out smart-automated manufacturing methodology to improve productivity. By opening up the path of technology commercialization and industrialization, SEIC is taking a leading position in the advanced manufacturing industry. With the promotion of the regional industry upgrading in Sujiatun District as the goal, SEIC is vigorously introducing high value projects to its industry chain, giving priority to the automobile industry, smart equipment and healthy food.
In the automobile industry, SEIC is creating new materials for automobile production around the projects of the Gonvarri Automotive Plate Center and the Voestalpine Steel Stamping Center, both of which are leaders among the world’s Top 500. By the end of 2015, SEIC has signed contracts with 11 enterprises, with a total contract amounting to RMB4.45 billion. In terms of intelligent equipment, SEIC is focusing on the construction of an intelligent equipment industry port and other projects with the help of Germanys Imat Automotive Test Center and the Geiger Engine Diversion System Production Base. By the end of 2015, SEIC has signed contracts with 16 enterprises, with a total contract amount of RMB490 million.
With 17 square kilometers at the heart of its urban areas, eight kilometers facing the Hun River waterfront, six kilometers of the green embankment, and 4,000 kilometers of the wetland park, SEIC is forming a perfect natural ecosystem. CFLD has expanded the total construction area by over one million square meters, including 253,000 square meters of the construction area for public services.
The commercial town, the library, the main square area, the Sujiatun District Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, and the Huashuwan Park are all open to the public.
The Sujiatun District Cultural Arts Center and other urban facelift projects have started. The Happiness School is a benchmark of the urban education system in the academy city, and priority is given to the introduction of Shenyang No. 7 High School, Chaoyang No. 1 School, and other limited, high-quality education resources from Liaoning Province, all of which are open for admissions. With the construction of the Central Avenue across the Hun River Bridge and the overpass construction of Xuesong Road in the future, the transport links between SEIC and Tiexi District and the old Sujiatun District will be closer. SEIC is gradually becoming a new industry city that integrates industries, residence and leisure with commercial, financial, administrative, cultural and other functions.
