A new year sees 2 national invention patents

Update:2016-04-12

At the beginning of 2016, two inventions, namely, “leakage fixing techniques for large-diameter concrete water supply pipes” and “multi-function operation trolley in tunnel construction”, declared by CWE, got authorization from China’s State Intellectual Property Office successively. CWE obtained so far six invention patents and 27 utility model patents; besides, 17 invention patents have been published, and “leakage fixing techniques for large-diameter concrete water supply pipes” is under review by the International Patent Cooperation Treaty PCT.

Since 2011, the staff of CWE has responded positively to the call for “innovation based on position”, explored constantly new technologies and processes in the engineering practice, and summarized a number of technical innovations while solving engineering problems. Notably by undertaking the Angat Water Utilization and Aqueduct Improvement Project Phase 2 in the Philippines, the Kwai Chung Incineration Plant Demolition & Decontamination Work in Hong Kong, the Nam Ngiep 2 Hydropower Project in Laos, and the Kaleta Hydroelectric Project in Guinea, the participants of CWE not only published technical papers, but also applied and got authorization on inventions and utility model patents, increasing CWE’s ownership of intellectual property, enhancing its technological innovation capability, and setting an example for all staff to contribute more for the innovative development of CWE.
