The old Dongfang Turbine building was built in Hanwang, Mianzhu, where the county's famous clock stopped at 2:28pm. That was the exact moment a massive earthquake viciously shook China's Sichuan province on May 12, 2008.
The quake caused vast casualties and devastating property loss to the region, including the Dongfang Turbine Company's factory. It was destroyed and was deemed irreparable.
The reconstruction began in August 2008. After less than two yeas of rebuilding, in May 2010, DTC was stronger than it had before.
Founded in 1966, Dongfang Turbine Co Ltd (DTC) is now located in Deyang, Sichuan province. It is a member of Dongfang Electric Cooperation of China and one of the largest power-generating equipment manufacturers in China.
The company has become the industry's leading enterprise, producing more than 20 billion yuan in output each year.
