MOL installs solar-powered generators at leased Tokyo berths

MOL installs solar-powered generators at leased Tokyo berths

Tokyo: Furthering Japanese lines collective environmental push Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and its group company Tokyo International Container Terminal Co. (TICT) have introduced a solar-powered electricity generator at the Nos.3 and 4 berths it exclusively leases at Tokyo's Oi Container Terminal.

The installation of a water reservoir on the roof of the gate building or atop the administrative office would save 8% of water bills the entire terminal complex has to pay. The solar-powered electricity generation systems introduced by MOL and TICT each saw 1,200 solar panels (photovoltaic modules) installed on the roofs of the gate and car-washing sheds, in a bid to generate/supply 185,000 kW/h of electric power a year. The electric power thus generated will be supplied mainly to the administrative offices within the terminal premises, supplementing about 20% of all the power consumption there.  [27/03/07]
