ViewRay and ITOCHU Corporation Enters into Distributor Agreement

ViewRay announced that it has entered into an exclusive distributor agreement with ITOCHU Corporation to sell its MRI-guided radiation therapy system for the treatment of cancer in Japan. ViewRay's technology, the MRIdian (me-rid-i-an) system, is the MRI-guided radiation therapy system that images and treats cancer patients simultaneously. The MRIdian system is designed to improve the accuracy of cancer treatments through a patented combination of simultaneous Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and radiation therapy delivery. With continuous soft-tissue imaging, clinicians can more clearly see the cancer target, monitor where the actual radiation dose is being delivered, and adapt to changes in the patient's anatomy – all in real time, providing a more precise and personalized cancer treatment option.

Mazda Motor Corporation Reaches an Agreement with Itochu Corporation to Turn its New National Sales Company in South Africa into a Joint Venture

Operations began at the company in October 2014. MSA will carry out a third party allocation of new shares worth ZAR 30 million (approximately JPY 300 million) to Itochu and form a joint venture company with the aim of further strengthening sales in South Africa.

Itochu Corporation Launches Lithium-Ion Storage Battery System for Domestic Use

Itochu Corporation has launched lithium-ion storage battery system for domestic use, developed and commercialized by NF Corporation, a manufacturer of industrial instruments. The product is scheduled to go on sale from December, 2014 collaborating with ITOCHU ENEX Home-Life companies nationwide through ITOCHU ENEX Co. Ltd., which has a strong sales channel for regular households. Upstream, ITOCHU is involved in the development, manufacture, and marketing of lithium resources projects and major battery components (cathode and anode materials). Downstream, for example in the marketing of the storage battery system, it is promoting the lithium-ion battery business as an eco-friendly business activity, developing a value chain utilizing the group's network and working to create new value. The addition of an energy storage system for domestic use to the existing portable model and for industrial application launched last year extends product lineup, responding to diverse customer needs and a range of applications, thereby helping to stabilize Japan's electricity supply and contributing to the improvement of anti-blackout measures. Major features of the system include: grid connected system with direct connection to distribution board; large capacity and long-term reliability; and can be linked to other equipment. When the system senses a power failure, electricity is transmitted automatically inside the home, allowing electrical appliances throughout the home to be used without being limited to electric outlet for specific load. The system can provide 7.0 kWh (rating capacity 6.6 kWh) electricity, which is able to cover approximately 60% of the daily power consumption of an average domestic setting., and employs long lifespan lithium ion batteries (expected 10,000 charge-discharge cycle, over 10 years of use). The storage battery system can be linked to almost all domestically manufactured photovoltaic power generation systems and some fuel cells (Ene-Farm). By charging surplus electricity generated by solar power during the day and utilizing cheaper night-time electricity stored in the storage battery, electricity costs can be cut and energy used effectively.
