Rengo Kanazu Mill Completes Steam Turbine Generator Facility and Commences Electricity Sale

Rengo Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Kita-ku, Osaka; Chairman, President & CEO: Kiyoshi Otsubo) announces it has newly installed a steam turbine generator at its Kanazu Mill (Awara-shi, Fukui Prefecture).

The new facility was installed to maximize the potential of the existing boiler for better efficiency in energy consumption, and at the same time start a new business in selling electricity. Compared to before, the rated output has been significantly increased, and besides meeting all the electric power requirements of the mill, it contributes to the energy needs of an area facing the continued stoppage of nuclear power by selling electricity to the local power company, as well as forwarding electricity for use at Rengo’s Yodogawa Mill (in Fukushima-ku, Osaka).

Rengo actively promotes the optimization of energy consumption in its manufacturing process, aiming to create packaging of greater value with fewer resources, keeping resource and energy saving in mind with its concept of “Less is more.”
