TOKYO, June 3, 2022 – (JCN Newswire) – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (MHI Thermal Systems), part of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group, received accolades in two categories of the 2022 “Demand Side Management Awards” competition sponsored by the Heat Pump & Thermal Storage Technology Center of Japan (HPTCJ), an organization that promotes the adoption of heat pumps and thermal storage systems by awarding prizes for particularly exceptional technologies that contribute to the leveling of the electrical load. “MSV2” series of high-efficiency air-cooled heat pump chillers adopting “e-3D scroll” compressor (1) received the HPTCJ President Award in Machinery and Equipment category, and Innovations in Machinery and Equipment. company’s plant heating system and cooling system using an aquifer thermal energy storage system (ATES)(2) received the HPTCJ Promotion Award in the Systems category integrated.
|Demand Management Awards Ceremony|
The MSV2 heat pump chillers, which were launched in the Japanese domestic market to meet the growing refrigeration load demand, were highly praised by HPTCJ for their contribution to electric load leveling. Because they can be installed in multiple units through modular connection, exceptional energy saving proposals can be offered to accommodate various thermal loads. Earlier, MSV2 was awarded the 2020 Energy Conservation Grand Prize sponsored by the Energy Conservation Center, Japan (ECCJ) and supported by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry .
The ATES system, an air conditioning system that uses unused stored geothermal heat, has won numerous accolades for its proven significant energy savings and potential environmental performance to maintain a zero underground heat balance over a full year. The system is in service at MHI Thermal Systems Kobe Works, located on the grounds of MHI Kobe Shipyard & Machinery Works. The HPTCJ award marks the system’s third commendation, following receipt of the 2019 Environmental Award from the Japan Society of Civil Engineers and the 2021 ECCJ Grand Prize for Energy Conservation.
MHI Thermal Systems is a market leader in air conditioning and refrigeration equipment, with products and technologies that meet contemporary needs. The importance of the company was demonstrated again last year with the receipt of a total of four awards for innovative technologies that contribute to energy conservation and environmental protection. Now, with the addition of the two HPTCJ awards, we renew our strong commitment to developing products and technologies that will help the world save energy. By leveraging our collective technological capabilities enabled by our group-wide product synergies, we will strive ever more vigorously to achieve optimal thermal solutions to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
