Contents                                                  In August, we all witnessed the successful and acclaimed Beijing Olympic Games. These
                                                          Olympics were one of my most unforgettable memories living and working in Beijing for
                                                          almost eleven years, but more importantly, they also fulfilled the Olympic dreams of

Carrier Secures Nearly 70 Percent of
HVAC Contracts for Beijing Games
Carrier achieved another milestone in its connection
to the 2008 Beijing Games, securing nearly 70 per-
cent of all heating, ventilating and air-conditioning
contracts for the venues. Carrier supplied a full line
of integrated systems to the Summer Games facilities,
ranging from AquaSnap® air-cooled chillers with
Puron® refrigerant to large centrifugal chillers to air-
handling units, fan coil units and the Carrier Comfort
Network (CCN) controls system.

The “Water Cube” National Aquatics Center, one of
the major venues for the Beijing Games, utilizes four
Carrier centrifugal chillers, a control network and
air-side products. Carrier’s innovative technology re-
covers more than 50 percent of the exhaust heat in
the aquatics center and then uses it to warm the
swimming pool. “This technology reduces heat emis-
sion in the environment as well as the energy con-
sumed for heating,” stated Ross Shuster, president,
Carrier Building Systems and Services, Asia.
“Additionally, our high tier air-handling units have
gone through a strict anticorrosive process to ensure
long-term operation under a damp and high-chlorine
indoor environment.”                                       the data of air-conditioning system operations and

Sikorsky S-76® and S-92® Helicopter Fleets
Achieve Flight Hour Milestone

The S-76® helicopter fleet has topped the 5 million
flight hour milestone, Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. an-
nounced on May 22, 2008.
The milestone follows two other highlights for the S-
76 helicopter in 2008: the 30th anniversary of the
first delivery and the 700th aircraft delivery. The
program is on track to mark another major event later
this year: first flight of the next production model,
the S76-DTM helicopter.
“Outstanding safety, quality, reliability and mission
flexibility are the hallmarks of the S-76 helicopter
program,” said Marc Poland, Vice President, Com-
mercial Programs. “We had expected this aircraft
fleet to reach the 5 million flight-hour mark during
the third quarter of this year, so reaching this milestone
now offers more validation of this fine aircraft.”

Although aircraft busily cross through the sky, the whole air transportation industry fall into the very
hard period due to the extreme rising cost of fuel. In order to balance the profit and loss, the world’s
major airlines have to reduce their air transportation capability by 20%.
The world’s major aircraft engine manufacturers are trying hard to explore how to improve the perfor-
mance of their engines. The successful answer from Pratt & Whitney is PurePowerTM PW1000G engine,
and G refers to Geared Turbofan (GTF) engine.
Pratt & Whitney announced at Farnborough Airshow on July 14, 2008 that its technology breaking-
through GTF engine has successfully completed 40,000 ground tests as well as flight test on its own
Boeing 747 flight test bed. The engine is now officially named as PurePowerTM PW1000G engine and will
be tested on A340. Pratt & Whitney PurePowerTM PW1000G has been chosen as the exclusive engine
for Mitsubishi Regional Jet and C-Series aircraft programs.

Mobile Integrated Water Treatment Stations to
Earthquake-stricken Area
“When disaster struck, help came from all sides.”Hamilton-Sundstrand
Industrial Equipment (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. made a swift decision right
after the Sichuan earthquake, to design and manufacture two special
mobile integrated water treatment stations from May 20 and donate
them to Chongqing Municipality upon completion, in an effort to support
disaster areas and provide basic water supply for people in the tempo-
rary shelters. Both devices can purify 40,000 liters of water per day, for
2000-4000 people’s use. Tests proved that the treated water has reached
national urban water standards. Mayor Wang Hongju, Standing Commit-
tee member of Municipal Party Committee and executive vice mayor
Huang Ying-fan, President and Chief Execu-
tive Officer of United Technologies Corp.,
Louis Chenevert, attended the donation
ceremony. The two mobile integrated water
treatment stations were sent smoothly on
June 23 to Guangyuan disaster areas in
