Environmental Conservation Activities
Mori Seiki Energy Solution Park
Photovoltaic systems, wind power systems and secondary battery made by GILDEMEISTER were installed at
Mori Seiki's Iga Campus in order to reduce environmental load and to secure power supply in an emergency. The
photovoltaic systems are a solar tracking type which can achieve 1.3 times more electrogenic capacity than a fixed
type. The vertical axis wind power generator is silent, lightweight, and does not get affected by wind direction.
The generated energy is stored in Redox flow batteries to provide power for EV, PHV, a part of our assembly plant offices, and disaster countermeasures offices inside the assembly plants in an emergency situation. We will continue to make efforts to reduce environmental load, while validating the potential for utilization of those green energy sources.
Approach to Energy Saving
We have been engaging in various energy-saving activities as the countermeasures against a possible nationwide power shortage caused by the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake, and successfully reduced total electricity consumption of our three campuses by 20% compared to that in the previous year. As a result we received an honorable mention as an environmentally-friendly company, from the Japan Machine Tool Builder's Association.
