Provision of Energy Begins in the On-site Energy Supply Project for Luckytex (Thailand) Mill No.2

December 26. 2016

Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd.
Osaka Gas Co., Ltd.

NS-OG Energy Solutions (Thailand) Ltd. (“NSET”), a 70-30% joint venture between Nippon Steel & Sumikin Engineering Co., Ltd. (“NSENGI”; Representative Director and President: Shinichi Fujiwara; Head Office: Shinagawa-ku, Tokyo) and Osaka Gas Singapore Pte. Ltd. (“OGS”; CEO: Tetsuji Yoneda), a subsidiary of Osaka Gas Co., Ltd. (“OG”; Representative Director and President: Takehiro Honjo; Head Office: Chuo-ku, Osaka City), completed construction work related to the on-site energy supply project* for the TORAY Group’s local subsidiary in Thailand Luckytex (Thailand) Public Company Limited (“LTX”) Mill No.2, and the supply of energy to LTX Mill No.2 commenced on December 1. An opening ceremony was held on December 19, with full-scale operation of the installed facilities also begun. NSET has received five cogeneration project orders to date. This is the first commencement of on-site energy supply through the NSET cogeneration project.


In this project, a cogeneration system that utilizes a gas turbine and a one-of-a-kind high-efficiency exhaust heat recovery boiler (developed by NSENGI) will supply electricity and steam for 15 years to achieve energy efficiency and reduce costs. This is a “one-stop energy service” business model in which NSET procures the fuel gas, constructs and operates the cogeneration facilities and even caries out power supply and demand management, including the sale of surplus electricity.


In terms of environmental friendliness, this project significantly reduces energy usage and CO2 emissions (20% less than current amounts), and it is expected to have a large positive impact as a measure for the prevention of global warming. Furthermore, the cogeneration system will contribute to the stable operation of the mill since it can serve as a stand-alone emergency power source during grid power outages.


NSENGI and OG will continue to leverage their rich experience in the construction, operation and maintenance of cogeneration systems to provide environmentally- and economically-superior energy-engineering solutions, thereby assisting the efforts of customer companies for the realization of a low carbon society. The two companies will also expand their businesses in Thailand.

*This is a project that carries out cogeneration facility design and construction as well as provides services to run (including maintenance and operation) the cogeneration facility.
