2013 Annual Report Financial and Corporate Responsibility Performance
Chongqing, located on the Yangtze River in Southwest China, is one of the world's fastest-growing cities. With a population of 33 million and another half million arriving each year, it exemplifies the rapid urbanization taking place throughout the developing world. UTC companies are supporting this growth with high-performance, energy-efficient products for the commercial building industry. Otis is supplying elevators and escalators for the International Finance Centre, the city's first premier office building to receive LEED Gold precertification. Carrier heating and air-conditioning systems are installed in the World Financial Center. And Chongqing's metro lines are equipped with Carrier heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems, Edwards fire detection and alarm systems, and Shengjie fire suppression systems.
The Airbus A321 is powered by IAE V2500 engines and equipped with nacelles and more than a dozen systems from UTC Aerospace Systems, including flight controls, electric power, lighting, air data systems, ice detection, cockpit controls, and wheels and brakes. Our acquisition of Goodrich Corp. gives us the ability to provide more intelligent, fully integrated systems for our aerospace customers. Our majority interest in the IAE International Aero Engines AG collaboration strengthens our position in the commercial aerospace aftermarket. It also allows our customers to transition smoothly from the current V2500 engine to Pratt & Whitney's PurePower engine for the new Airbus A320neo aircraft family.
By focusing on our core aerospace and building systems businesses, investing in game-changing technologies and continuing to expand our presence in emerging markets, we are well positioned to deliver strong growth in 2014 and well into the future.
