Yanmar Energy System Co., Ltd.
In addition to the decreased demand for FAME, the customer was concerned about cases in Europe where there was a risk of dioxin contamination in SVO when added to the feed. Long-term operation with stability has been a challenge for the SVO power generation business. However, we started from repeating trial operation using different types of recycled power generation systems and managed to tackle various problems one by one. This attitude helped us gain the customer's trust and ultimately led to the introduction of large-scale power generation systems.
We helped our customer overcome challenges related to operation by leveraging the strengths of Yanmar Group, such as by establishing a task team which included experts in engines that use low-quality fuels, and through verification of data by remote monitoring. We believe our mission is to pursue initiatives that sustain society through SVO power generation, and to help our customers succeed in their aspirations for local SVO production and consumption.
