① Fuel Gas Supply System (FGSS)

We have concluded the exclusive in-country distributor agreement with FGSS maker (engineering company), Gloryholder and are engaged in sales activities for shipyards and shipowners over Japan. FGSS is a system that supplies LNG fuel from the dedicated LNG fuel tank. Vaporized LNG in the system is supplied to an LNG fuel engine, which is attracting attention as an environmentally friendly engine as it has the effect of reducing SOx emissions to almost zero, reducing NOx by more than 80% (for low-pressure engines), and reducing CO2 (greenhouse gas) by more than 20% compared to a conventional engine.

② Sox Scrubber

In January 2019, we have signed a commercial agreement with Ecospray Technologies S.r.l (Head Office: Italy), a worldwide SOx scrubber manufacturer for the sales of his products in Japan, and are selling SOx Scrubbers to ship owners and shipyards. By installing a SOx scrubber on the vessel, it is possible to remove SOx (sulfur oxide) contained in exhaust gas and meet the SOx emission regulations of IMO without using low-sulfur fuel. The company's SOx scrubber features a compact design with low pressure loss and a silencer effect. To respond to customer needs such as delivery locations and short delivery times, they have 18 manufacturing bases around the world, mainly in Europe, the United States, Canada, China, and Japan.

③ Ballast water treatment system

We select the best treatment system according to the types and sizes of the ships in service, and support the installation from consultation to construction.

④ Ship mounted fuelometer "FUEL NAVI"

This device monitors a variety of operational data such as fuel consumption in the bridge of a ship. It will help save service fuel and provide information on detailed fuel consumption. The system can be precise because our company knows about the ship thoroughly.

⑤ Fuel Additives

We suppress sludge by adding ship fuel oil (HSC/HLSFO). This improves fuel economy by refining sludge dispersion and fuel oil.

⑥ Solar Power Business

We have been working towards a solar power generation business since 2010, and promote green energy for the environment. We operate solar power generation projects at seven locations in Japan and three locations overseas using buildings and roofs of the NYK Group, and sell some of them to electric power companies.

⑦ Green Station

We are turning our gas station facility in Ito, Shizuoka Prefecture (managed by a distributor of the company after sining a lease contract with Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K. (*1) July 2014) into a green station. A green station is a facility that has established global workin countermeasure equipment, such as LED lighting and solar panels, which controls carbon dioxide emissions and power usage and is promoted by the Ministry of Economym Trade and Industry.
We introduced a system at the Ito Seaside Gas Station that combines solar power generation systems (4.95KW), storage batteris(lithium ion batteries), LED lighting, and EMS(*2), pooling electricity from solar power into the batteries. It is possible to cut electricity during peak hours by using the pooled electricity during the daytime, and this battery power from solar power can be used in the event of a disaster power outage. Based on the lessons from the past disaster, we have prepared a system that can respond to non-operational tanker planed and will allow us to make a societal contribution towerd the regional disaster location.
