District Heating and
Cooling Systems

Since 1970, Shinryo has been advancing its district heating and cooling (DHC) technologies to become the leading DHC Contractor in Japan. These efforts reflect our environmentally friendly corporate policy and contribute to society, urban life and all mankind.

Our DHC plants are designed with the following objectives;

  • Energy efficient
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Stable and reliable energy supply

Our projects are operational at over 80 sites in Japan, and since 1996, our first Asian DHC project" the KLIA CGS/DCS plant" has been supplying chilled water to various Kuala Lumpur International Airport facilities. Today, our DHC operations extend to plants in Singapore, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates.

Asia is increasingly turning to large scale heating and cooling systems for multiple buildings in order to achieve the objectives of reducing air pollution, saving energy, countering global warming, as well as making efficient use of new energy resources. Drawing upon the experience and technologies developed over the years, Shinryo has been involved in a number of district heating and cooling projects. All of these projects have been designed to provide a stable and cost-effective energy supply whilst respecting the environment in the process.
