Our Business / Thermal Power StationsCoexistence with Nature
Considering the impact to the surrounding environment, measures against noise/vibration and industrial waste, for the landscape preservation and such are incorporated to protect the surrounding environment.
〇 Measures against noise/vibration
Measures against noise and vibration such as proper placement of buildings and equipment, adoption of equipment for lowering noise/vibration, installation of silencer/sound barrier are implemented.
〇 Measures against industrial waste
Manuals tailored to the business form of the thermal power station are prepared to ensure proper disposal of waste. In addition, we actively promote effective use of waste by-products such as coal ash generated by operating thermal power stations.
〇 Measures for the landscape preservation
Regarding measures for the landscape preservation at the power stations, we are trying to harmonize with the local landscape while taking cost in consideration. For example, we have implemented landscape simulation for the chimneys and the main building, and selected the shape, color and such.
We are also actively involved in greening and are striving to preserve the environment by planting trees on the power station site and such to harmonize with nature; the site currently has turned into a forest with many insects.
