China boasts a affluent Liquefied Pure Fuel (LNG) market. In 2018 alone, 280 billion cubic meters of pure fuel has been consumed. With China’s coal-to-gas conversion coverage and a fast-growing economic system, we are able to count on an growing demand for LNG within the years forward. To raised serve the big Chinese language market, ENN Vitality Holdings Restricted, one of many largest vitality service suppliers in China, has turned to VeChainThor Blockchain for optimum high quality management and supply-chain administration. Nationwide, ENN is working 187 mission cities that cowl a connectable city inhabitants of 94.57 million in China.
In August 2018, on the China Worldwide Fuel & Heating Expertise and Gear Exhibition 2018, ENN, VeChain, a number one enterprise-level public blockchain platform, and Shanghai Fuel, a state-owned firm that accounts for greater than 90% of Shanghai’s whole fuel market, signed a strategic cooperation settlement to develop a VeChainThor Blockchain-based LNG answer.
This Answer was first adopted by Zhoushan LNG Storage and Distribution Centre. On this utility, VeChainThor Blockchain is utilized together with IoT gadgets to facilitate supply-chain administration. Upon arrival, the fuel will probably be injected into completely different tanks, from there every tank of fuel is assigned a tank quantity, associating with the related knowledge saved on the blockchain, corresponding to clarification worth, sources, and the like. When trucked out to retailers, logistics data and the LNG high quality studies will probably be uploaded to the blockchain as effectively. By this course of, the information of LNG from service to native distributors may be cross-validated and verified on blockchain fulfilling authorities mandates.
On this episode of our “Companion Replace and Highlight Collection”, Tao Zhou, Deputy Common Supervisor of Home Commerce Group, ENN Vitality Buying and selling Group was invited to discuss how the VeChainThor Blockchain has introduced actual worth to their enterprise.
Being a model new know-how, it’s pure for blockchain to be doubted and even criticized, however as an alternative of evading the critics, we must always rise as much as the questions and develop strong options and discover new utility eventualities to combine it with the true economic system. We’re glad to have this chance to cooperate with modern know-how corporations like VeChain to create new methods of buying and selling and data processing for the vitality business. From our expertise previously yr, the mixing of blockchain into the vitality business is feasible. I imagine that along with the LNG enterprise, the cooperation can even contribute to different companies and merchandise of ENN. We additionally hope that the group members would be a part of us in selling the enterprise and additional its presence available on the market.

Q: On the primary anniversary of the launching of the VeChainThor Blockchain mainnet, do you’ve got something to say to VeChain?
To begin with, I wish to congratulate VeChain for the primary anniversary of VeChainThor mainnet. On behalf of ENN, I wish to lengthen my greatest needs to VeChain, and hope that the enterprise of VeChain would flourish, and onboard much more companions going ahead, I additionally hope that ENN can create even larger worth upon VeChainThor Blockchain.
Q: Through which use case did ENN implement VeChainThor’s blockchain know-how?
The cooperation of ENN and VeChain began in August 2018, when ENN, VeChain and Shanghai Fuel signed a strategic cooperation settlement. It was in September 2018 when VeChainThor Blockchain know-how first used within the pilot part of the ENN Zhoushan Terminal, which is the primary massive private-owned LNG Terminal in China.

The pure fuel imported by ENN is from all around the world, so the composition, high quality, calorific worth, and gasification fee varies from batch to batch. Native distributors are additionally paying nice consideration to the strain adjustments of the fuel throughout transportation, the time of arrival, and value adjustments.
With VeChainThor Blockchain know-how, the above-mentioned data may be verified and saved on the blockchain, thus customers can grasp the data by scanning QR codes. On this manner, we are able to guarantee data authenticity and transparency, whereas additional enhancing security.
The answer has not solely been well-received by our clients, but in addition drummed up curiosity amongst numerous monetary establishments. With the genuine and encrypted knowledge obtainable for checking, they’re now supplied with a instrument for data question and verification, which is making it attainable for them to offer varied supply-chain monetary providers.

Along with that, since all the information saved on the blockchain are genuine, encrypted and obtainable for checking, provide chain monetary service suppliers at the moment are supplied with a instrument for data question and verification. In order that shifting ahead, empowered by VeChainThor Blockchain, provide chain monetary providers, together with warehouse receipt pledge, high quality traceability and security assurance, may be supplied for our purchasers.
Q: Within the subsequent stage, what’s ENN’s plan for VTHO consumption on VeChainThor Blockchain?
Firstly, because the Answer has turn out to be more and more in style amongst our purchasers, we’re gaining much more confidence in VeChainThor Blockchain know-how, thus we’ll persistently push forward this new enterprise.
Secondly, with the event of Zhoushan LNG Terminal, we are able to count on sustainable development in shipments. The entire day by day supply is about 60 truckloads proper now, we’re growing the quantity to over 200.
