Idemitsu Kosan Co. Ltd (head office: Tokyo; representative director and CEO: Takashi Tsukioka), NYK Trading Corporation (head office: Tokyo; president and representative director: Keiji Tsuchiya), and NYK Line (head office: Tokyo; president: Tadaaki Naito) jointly exhibited at the Japan-China Green Expo 2017,* a major trade fair in Beijing, China, showcasing Japanese environmental technologies, products, and services from June 13 to 16. The three companies introduced “ULTY-V plus,” a control optimization system for coal-fired boilers and environmental initiatives.
“ULTY-V plus” contains the attributes of its predecessor, ULTY-V, in addition to newly incorporated AI and IoT features. The system was jointly developed by the three companies and will hit the market this October. “ULTY-V plus” enables the boiler to be precisely controlled, thus resulting in greater optimization of performance. Furthermore, the system can be coordinated to remotely supervise operation data, and various technical services can be provided.
In China, about 70 percent of primary energy is from coal, and environmental concerns are increasing yearly. About 1,000 representatives of Chinese companies interested in environmental technology and energy conservation visited the “ULTY-V plus” booth, and videos and pamphlets were used to emphasize environmental initiatives. Technical staff made presentations to guests who use boilers in power plants and factories, and questions were actively fielded.
The three companies will continue to contribute to the prevention of global warming and to the realization of a sustainable society by reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through the promotion of “ULTY-V plus” both inside and outside the country.
