Azbil Corporation Was Selected for "Energy-Saving Survey Project by IT" in
ASEAN Countries Supported by METI
TOKYO -- June 29, 2012
Azbil Corporation (TOKYO:6845) has announced that it has reached an agreement
with Pendinginan Megajana Sdn Bhd in Malaysia (hereinafter, Megajana) to
conduct an energy-saving survey of Megajana's district cooling facilities in
Cyberjaya, a suburb of Kuala Lumpur, using Azbil's technology for optimum
operation of utility facilities.
This energy-saving survey is an activity based on the "Asia Knowledge Economy
Initiative" which the Japanese government proposed at the ASEAN Economic
Ministers Meeting in 2008 as a mid- to long-term framework for Japan-ASEAN
cooperation. The "Asia Knowledge Economy Initiative" aims to contribute to
building a sphere of higher knowledge economy in Asian countries by utilizing
technological innovation by IT and providing the experience and know how
cultivated in Japan, while also responding to the future development of IT and
the demand for a low-carbon society in Asia.
The energy-saving survey for this agreement was entrusted to the Japan
Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) by
Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) for fiscal 2012's
"Support for IT utilization aimed at fostering a knowledge economy in Asia
(promoting Green IT)." Azbil, a member of JEITA, will conduct the
energy-saving survey for Megajana. For the survey, Azbil will install
measurement devices as needed, collect and analyze operation data and propose
energy-saving solutions, with the aim to contribute to energy conservation and
CO reduction in Malaysia. The survey result and proposal for achieving
optimum operation will be provided at the end of November.
Azbil's technology for optimum operation of utility facilities realizes
significant energy saving and CO reduction for utility facilities supplying
electricity, steam, cold water, hot water, compressed air, etc. for factories
and buildings. This technology, which requires no new and expensive devices,
can maximize efficiency of the entire utility facility by coordinating and
optimizing operations of the entire existing utility facility with control
technologies. The results of this technology in Japan show it is possible to
achieve a 2% to 5% cut in total energy consumption.
Founded in 1906. Azbil Corporation pursues "human-centered automation," which
aims to contribute to people's safety, comfort and fulfillment and also to
global environmental preservation. In April 2012, Azbil Corporation has
changed its name from Yamatake Corporation.
