Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base

Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base is located in Xinzhou District, Wuhan City, Hubei Province administrative divisions, by the Wuhan Municipal People's Government jointly China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation , China Fortune Foundation Limited jointly build, in accordance with the PPP mode and the "middle-hing City, the city with the production, production integration of the city, urban-rural integration "idea of building aerospace industrial town, is a national aerospace industrial base, China's first commercial space industrial base, Wuhan City, the country's new four bases. One has been stored in the Hubei Provincial Development and Reform Commission's major project database, the Ministry of Finance and the social capital cooperation (PPP) center project database, etc.

Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base is 30 kilometers away from the city center, a 40-minute drive from Tianhe Airport , and a 30-minute drive from Wuhan High-speed Railway Station, across the river from Optics Valley. The Optics Valley Yangtze River Bridge and the Shuangliu Yangtze River Bridge, which connect the base to the Da Optics Valley, are both in full speed. Construction of the Shuangliu Yangtze River Bridge has started in December 2020 and the Optics Valley Yangtze River Bridge is undergoing preparatory work; After the completion of the bridge, the base will be directly connected to the "Great Optics Valley" in half an hour, and will be "seamlessly connected" with the Optics Valley.

Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base by the Wuhan Municipal Government jointly China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation, China Fortune Foundation Limited jointly build. China Fortune Land Development Co., Ltd. (stock code: 600340) was founded in 1998 and is a leading new industrial city operator in China. China Fortune Land Development has adhered to the concept of “prospering the city by industry, driving production by city, integrating industry and city, and integrating urban and rural areas”, relying on a market-oriented operation model, focusing on electronic information, high-end equipment, new energy vehicles, aerospace, energy conservation and environmental protection.

The base sits at Yangluo Port, the only deep-water port in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River. The Wuhan Rail Transit Yangluo Line has been opened. The Jiangbei Expressway, which opened to traffic in 2019, shortened the journey from the base to Hankou to within half an hour. The base is close to the existing outer ring road of Wuhan. The outer ring of Wuhan expands eastward, and the base will be included in the new outer ring of Wuhan. By then, the traffic between the base and various functional areas in Wuhan will be more convenient.

The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that it is necessary to build aerospace power. As the first national-level commercial aerospace industry base, Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base is close to the "Yangtze River New City" and has a large-scale contiguous area of concentrated construction land. It is also an industrial new city on the main axis of the Yangtze River. Relying on the innovation and transformation of energy levels of the major national aerospace industry, a new large-scale aerospace industry sector will be formed here, which will go hand in hand with Wuhan's pillar industries - Da Lingkong, Da Lingang, Da Che Du, and Da Optics Valley - achieving a national strategic axis.

In July 2015, Premier Li Keqiang made important instructions to support the development of Hubei's aerospace industry. In August 2016, Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base was formally approved by the National Development and Reform Commission. In April 2017, China Fortune Land Development signed a PPP project cooperation agreement with the People's Government of Xinzhou District, Wuhan City. On April 24, 2017, the Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base officially started construction, and aerospace companies such as Aerospace Science and Industry Rocket Technology Co., Ltd. signed contracts to settle in. On April 24, 2018, the third "China Aerospace Day", the Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base intensively signed 19 companies with a total investment of 5.054 billion yuan; simultaneously signed a 6 billion industry fund specifically to support the development of the base enterprises.

The Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base will build industrial clusters such as commercial aerospace, new materials, and high-end equipment. In 10 years, it will form a new industrial city with an output value of nearly 60 billion. Layout Aerospace Science and Industry "five cloud" project around the new carrier rocket and launch services, satellite platform and payload, application of spatial information, ground and terminal equipment manufacturing and other fields, to build a world-class commercial aerospace industrial base.

High-end equipment, focusing on intelligent manufacturing equipment, logistics equipment, energy equipment and other fields, cutting into fields such as industrial robots, sorting and transportation equipment, power transmission and distribution equipment, etc., to create a high-end equipment R&D and manufacturing highland in Central China;

New materials, quickly cut into aerospace new materials and other application fields, import electronic information upstream supporting materials companies, advance the layout of graphene, nanomaterials and other cutting-edge fields, and create a new material industry demonstration zone in central China.

Kuaizhou rocket industrial park, based in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, was partially put into operation, according to China Aerospace Science and Industry Corp (CASIC) 12 May 2020. After it is fully operational, the park is expected to be capable of completing the assembly and testing for 20 solid-fuelled carrier rockets annually. With construction beginning in May 2017, the industrial park is the first project in Wuhan's national aerospace industrial base, the first commercial aerospace industrial base in China. The rocket complex, which was designed to have an initial capacity of manufacturing 20 solid propellant rockets every year, will add new sectors specially for the research and development work for liquid engines and liquid-fueled rockets, and will become operational by the second half of this year.

Xingyun satellites were developed and manufactured in Wuhan, at the city's Satellite Industrial Park at the Wuhan National Aerospace Industry Base, just across the street from the rocket complex. A smart production line capable of producing 240 small satellites per year was put into operation at the beginning of 202. Once completed, the 28.4-hectare industrial park will be used for the research and development of space products, including satellite internet and micro craft, and will provide support for space monitoring, data processing and operations.
