Sanctions by the U.S.and its allies, as you know, have badly affected Huawei Technologies in terms of sales of smartphones and base stations for communication networks, but the Chinese giant is seeking new niches for further development, and supplies of modern equipment for the energy sector may become a way to save the company in the difficult current conditions.Image source: Huawei Technologies Last June, Huawei managed to separate into an independent structural unit of its business.Originally, Huawei had to produce them to equip its own base stations with autonomous power supply, but now the corresponding solutions are supplied to a wide range of customers.The interest in Huawei energy systems in the Asian region is very high, according to the company's representative.While the revenue of Huawei Technologies as a whole decreased by 28.5 percent in 2021 under the burden of sanctions, the energy business showed a 30 percent revenue growth and it is going to maintain the same dynamics this year.The unit employs about 6,000 people, and there are 12 research centers of the relevant profile scattered across China, Asia and Europe.Huawei energy equipment is produced in China using components from different countries, but if necessary, the company is ready to organize the production of such products abroad as well.Diversification of supply channels allowed the company to avoid a significant impact of lockdowns in China on its core business.Huawei has high hopes for the upcoming migration to electric vehicles - the development of charging infrastructure will not do without the use of this brand's power generation equipment.Currently, solar power plants in Singapore, Indonesia and Cambodia are actively using Huawei solutions, and the brand's profile products are in high demand in the region.
Apple and Samsung continued to certify equipment in Russia, despite leaving the country
Despite earlier decisions to suspend operations in Russia, Apple and Samsung continued to apply for product certification.These certificates allow them to sell equipment throughout the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), but experts believe that the manufacturers are interested in resuming deliveries to Russia.Source image: apple.comSamsung stopped supplying products to Russia in early March, but Kommersant managed to find that Samsung Electronics Rus Company LLC (SERK) applied for certification of phones, monitors, TVs and other household appliances, including not yet announced products until May 19 at least.In May alone, the SSEC registered 12 certificates and 22 declarations with Rosakkreditatsiya.Among them are smartphones Galaxy A13 5G (announced, but not officially sold in Russia), as well as Galaxy A04 and A13s (not yet officially introduced) - all three models were tested May 16 in the center № 300 Rostest-Moscow.Earlier it was reported that the model Samsung Galaxy A13 5G, together with a number of other devices in the range were on sale in Russia under the parallel export program - imported from Kazakhstan devices were sold in stores DNS, \"Fusion\" and \"M.Video\" with a significant markup.Not to suspend certification of goods and the company Apple, which also in early March, announced the termination of its work in Russia: from 10 to March 21 the company made requests, among other things for the Mac Studio desktop, monitor Studio Display and upgraded iPhone SE - the latter was tested at the Russian Research Institute of Radio.China's Huawei did not make any statements about ceasing operations in Russia, but it also reduced the volume of supplies and continued to certify its products, issuing declarations in April and May for the Huawei P50 smartphone and the MateStation monoblock computer.Despite the fact that permits for all of these devices are valid throughout the EAEU (Russia, Belarus, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan), one of the experts interviewed by Kommersant believes that it would be easier and cheaper for manufacturers to certify in the countries where they plan to sell.This could mean that despite the suspension of sales in Russia, companies are doing so with the prospect of resuming operations in the country, as well as \"to support those who will import their products.
