The whole people fight against floods and show warmth

   Under the heavy rain, Zhengzhou City staged a scene of warmth and affection of all the staff “fighting the flood.” The scenes of police and civilians working together to rescue wading vehicles, netizens relaying rescue information, and community residents rushing to drain water in the basement took turns. However, the ruthless disaster still has an impact on the production of local enterprises and the short-term normal operation of related industrial chains.

“Heavy rain has a certain impact on production. Some workshops have water ingress, so we suspended the operation of some production machinery.” A related person of a listed company in the industrial manufacturing industry in Zhengzhou with a production workshop told a reporter from Securities Times·e Company on the night of the 20th. Although the current supply of water and electricity in the factory area is normal, the company voluntarily suspended production due to water in the workshop. At present, there is no accurate statistics on the specific number of affected machines, and production will be suspended, and will gradually resume when the rainstorm subsides. As the heavy rain continues, the final impact of the company is still unknown. The company is also doing its best to prevent floods and arrange personnel on duty.

In addition to local enterprises, as the place where the Beijing-Guangzhou and Longhai railways converge, the heavy rain disaster in Zhengzhou has also affected railway transportation, which in turn exerted supply pressure on some industries.

According to local Henan media reports, at 14:00 on July 20, some sections of the Longhai Railway near the level crossing of Shakou Road, Jinshui Road, Zhengzhou City collapsed under heavy rain. The landslide is located about 4 kilometers from Zhengzhou to Luoyang on the Longhai Railway. The line is a common line used by Zhengxi High-speed Railway and the normal-speed trains on the Longhai Line, which will affect the operation of both the high-speed railway and the normal railway. In addition, the road is blocked due to heavy rainfall, and the expected control time for the Gongyi section of Lianhuo Expressway is about 48 hours.

“In addition to Zhengzhou, Gongyi was also affected by the heavy rain. The local aluminum industry is more concentrated in production and processing, and there is also a large-scale aluminum ingot storage warehouse in China. If road transportation is interrupted, the goods will not be shipped out of the warehouse. The short-term supply and demand of the aluminum industry has an impact, and the specific impact depends on the extent of the disaster.” An aluminum industry person in Gongyi, Henan, told a reporter from the Securities Time’s Company.

The Henan cement market, whose prices have fallen sharply due to sluggish downstream demand, may face more severe impacts after the occurrence of the heavy rain.

According to China Cement.com, the production and sales of cement manufacturers in Zhengzhou are currently affected, but the production line has not stopped production. According to the data of “2020 China’s Top 100 Cement Clinker Production Capacity” released by the website, Zhengzhou local cement companies mainly include Tianrui Cement, China United Cement, Songji Cement, Hongchang Cement, Yongan Cement, etc., with a total of 9 production lines.
