December 15, 2014Order for Phase 2 of Bangpa-in Cogeneration Plant
December 15, 2014 - Following a successful bid in international bidding, SHINRYO CORPORATION (“SHINRYO”) has received the order to build Phase 2 of the Bangpa-in Cogeneration Plant in Thailand.
The Bangpa-in Cogeneration Plant is being built at Bangpa-in Industrial Estate in Ayutthaya Province, roughly 50km north of the Thai capital of Bangkok.
The client in this project is Bangpa-in Cogeneration Limited※1, and the company contracted to manage the construction work is Bangpa-in Cogeneration's parent company, Ch. Karnchang Public Company Limited.
Phase 1 of the project was contracted to SHINRYO, which completed construction in June 2013. We believe the award of Phase 2 to SHINRYO testifies to the high regard in which our track record in Phase 1 is held.
Phase 2 adopts a natural-gas combined-cycle power-generating system, consisting of two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam boiler and one steam turbine. Its power output is 114MW and steam is supplied at a rate of 20t/h (at pressure of 19bar and temperature of 209°C).
The project forms part of the “small power producers” (SPP)※2 plan drafted by Thailand’s state power company, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). As with Phase 1, the objective of Phase 2 is to supply 90MWh to EGAT’s electricity grid for 25 years. The construction agreement was officially signed on November 20, 2014. Construction will begin in February 2015 and is due for completion in June 2017.
The contract was awarded to a consortium of SHINRYO and its Thai subsidiary, Thai Shinryo Limited (“the Consortium”), on a full turnkey basis. The Consortium is responsible for all aspects of the construction project from design through procurement of equipment and materials to construction and test operation.
The Consortium has built four cogeneration plants in Thailand, including its debut project, a plant supplying energy to Suvarnabhumi International Airport, and Bangpa-in Phase 1. Bangpa-in Phase 2 marks the fifth cogeneration project awarded to the Consortium in Thailand.
※1Bangpa-in Cogeneration Limited is a subsidiary of CK Power Public Company Limited, a power-generation holding company owned by Ch. Karnchang Public Company Limited.
※2The Small Power Producers (SPP) program is a program launched by the Thai government in 1992 with two objectives: 1) to increase the efficiency of energy use by incentivizing small-scale operators and utilizing by-products and recovered energy from existing energy sources, and 2) to reduce the import and consumption of petroleum.
Bidding Process and Program Operation : The bidding process for SPP projects differs from competitive tender. Operators submit project proposals in response to a request for bids from EGAT. Projects that satisfy certain standards are approved to go ahead as SPP projects. Electricity fees and other conditions of electricity sale are specified by EGAT at the time of the request for proposals and are applied to the winning operator.
When the SPP program is applied to an SPP operator, EGAT guarantees that it will purchase up to 90MW. The operator is free to sell the remaining electrical power and heat (steam, chilled water) independently to businesses in the industrial estate and other customers.

Sept. 18, 2014The development of the Formaldehyde Removal System
Sept. 18, 2014 - SHINRYO CORPORATION ("SHINRYO") is pleased to announce the release of the "Formaldehyde Removal System" on September 10 2014. We introduce below excerpts of the press release data.
Realizing a safe working environment through our unique airflow control technology and high-performance removal machine
- ・U Flow System: An easily-operated airflow system which suppresses the dispersion of formaldehyde
- ・MediECO-FA: Formaldehyde removal machine offering top-level removal performance
- ・The technology listed above realizes a safe working environment with outstanding removal performance, operability and energy saving
＜Background and System＞
SHINRYO CORPORATION ("SHINRYO") has developed 2 types of unique technology: U Flow System, an airflow system which suppresses dispersion, and MediECO-FA, a formaldehyde removal machine. In addition to improving the working environment, this technology fulfills a broad range of needs including improved operability, energy saving, and reduction of environmental load. In the pathology laboratories and autopsy rooms of hospitals and pharmaceutical research institutes, the carcinogen formaldehyde is released into the room during cutting and procedures such as using formalin for tissue fixation of organs, washing organs with water, and taking photographs for records. Such procedures are frequently performed for long periods of time, creating a high risk that workers will inhale formaldehyde which is emitted during the procedures. In regards to such conditions, the Ordinance on Prevention of Hazards Due to Specified Chemical Substances was revised in 2008, with control parameters for formaldehyde being set at 0.1 ppm or lower. Currently, the improvement of the working environment is a task of urgent importance.
U Flow System (airflow system which suppresses dispersion) ＜Patent No. 5476433＞ / (Figure 1, Photograph 1)
U Flow System is a localized exhaust system which utilizes a U-shaped airflow. It is intended for use with work platforms. High concentration air stagnating in the vicinity of the formaldehyde emission source is discharged by the localized exhaust system over the work platform. Furthermore, low concentration area which is within control parameters and stagnates under the work platform is discharged by the U-shaped airflow. These two measures suppress the dispersion of formaldehyde while realizing a safe working environment and easy operability. U Flow System is highly acclaimed for its operability. A total of 20 units have been installed as of July 2014. A working environment within control parameters has been realized at all installation locations.

Photograph 1: U Flow System (overview)
MediECO-FA (formaldehyde removal machine) ＜Patent No. 5385101; International Publication No. WO2013/057791 A1＞ / (Figure 2)
MediECO-FA is a wet removal machine composed of a chemical solution supply unit and a formaldehyde removal unit. Safe chemical solutions using food additives are dripped into the Washer media (a polyethylene terephthalate filter that heightens the contact efficiency of the passing airflow and chemicals) inside the formaldehyde removal unit. When the air containing formaldehyde passes through the Washer media, the formaldehyde is removed by the adsorption reaction of the chemical solution and formaldehyde.
The most distinctive feature of MediECO-FA is the formaldehyde removal performance. When formaldehyde concentration at the inlet is 0.1 ppm, a removal efficiency of 90% or higher is maintained from 370 to 1,100 hours (approx. 2 to 6 months when assuming an 8-hour work day and 22 work days per month) depending on the capacity of the chemical solution tank. Compared to conventional removal technology, MediECO-FA maintains a high removal rate for a long period of time. This reduces maintenance costs and realizes a safe working environment. It also enables construction of circulatory removal (refer to Chapter 4 for details) ventilation systems which were previously difficult to implement.
We offer 3 types of MediECO-FA according to air throughput (3,000m3/h type, 6,000m3/h type, 12,000m3/h type). The machine has received high acclaim for its removal performance and energy saving properties. A total of 6 units have been installed as of July 2014. A removal rate of 90% or higher has been realized at all installation locations.

Example of ventilation system using the 2 technologies
In addition to product sales, SHINRYO utilizes our experience gained as a total environmental engineering company to provide added-value ventilation systems with benefits such as enhanced energy savings. Furthermore, by utilizing our CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) analysis developed through more than 20 years of research and development, we offer planning for ventilation systems which consider air current and other comfort factors in addition to formaldehyde concentration.

Aug 29, 2014"Doctor Air: Children visiting day 2014!" held
August 29, 2014 - SHINRYO CORPORATION ("SHINRYO") held its "Doctor Air: Children visiting day 2014!" event in the Research and Development Center (Tsukuba) on August 1.
On the day, 83 children, mostly elementary and junior high school students, and their parents, the Company's employees, gathered from every corner of the country with the total number of visitors reaching as many as 150. The aim was to teach the participants about various issues involving air, nurturing, so to speak, "doctors of the air science".
During the event, we conveyed the Company's know-how to the participants in an easy-to-understand way, making sure it can be later put by the children to good use in their independent research projects they need to do for schools. We conducted four experiments/hands-on experiences, that is, (1) Creating cold water and air, (2) Removing smells, (3) Seeing the airflow, and (4) Learning how sounds are heard.
On the day, the Company's Vice President also attended the event, handing out the "Doctor Air: Children visiting day " certificates to each of the participants at the end of the proceedings.
The children visiting day events have been held from 2011 every year to give an opportunity for the children of the Company's employees to learn more about their fathers' and mothers' work, and, by forging a deeper understanding of the jobs among the family members, making our employees feel pride in what they do.
The initiative of children visiting days is a great way to create fond memories of summer vacation for the employees, their spouses and their children, and the Company shall continue holding these events annually as a part of its CSR activities.
Outline of the four experiments/hands-on experiences offered
(1) Creating cold water and airIn order to make a room cool, it is necessary to make some cool air. In the experiment, the participants cool the water down using an ice thermal storage demo machine, then cool the air down using this water, and have the mechanism explained to them.
(2) Removing smellsIn order to create a comfortable environment, it is also important to remove disagreeable smells. In the experiment, the participants use activated carbon to remove smells of curry powder, cinnamon, powdered wasabi, and softening agents, and have the mechanism explained to them.
(3) Seeing the airflowIn order to create a comfortable environment, it is necessary to control the flow of air. Using air guns and smoke, the participants experience airflow and have its importance explained to them.
(4) Learning how sounds are heardIn order to create a comfortable environment, it is necessary to make undesired sounds as small as possible. The participants play musical instruments in an anechoic room and a reverberation room, and after experiencing the difference of how sounds are heard in each environment, study about the mechanism of each room.

July 4, 2014Short-term Overseas Trainee System for New Employees
July 4, 2014 - SHINRYO CORPORATION ("SHINRYO")'s order book for overseas projects is growing rapidly. In response to this growing demand, the Company has already launched technical seminars abroad, assigning researchers from SHINRYO's Central Laboratory to serve as instructors in each location. (See "On-site Engineering Guidance at Overseas Bases Shifts into High Gear," SHINRYO News, June 30, 2014.) Today SHINRYO has announced that all employees will participate in training overseas as part of their new-employee training regimen. The directive applies to all new employees inducted in or after April 2014.
Until the new directive, engineering employees underwent seven months of training at project sites in Tokyo Metropolitan area, while administrative employees accepted five months of on-site training. Under the newly introduced "short-term overseas trainee system for new employees," an overseas training stint of about one week is added.
SHINRYO's overseas expansion began in 1972, as mounting orders for overseas projects drove the Company's full-fledged entry into the international market. Beginning in Southeast Asia, the Company established numerous branch offices and local affiliates as it steadily expanded overseas operations. Today the number of overseas SHINRYO employees stands at 1,800, easily surpassing the number of Japanese staff seconded overseas.
Amid a constantly shifting operating environment, SHINRYO has long believed in the value of developing employees' talents through the experience of working overseas. With this goal in mind, SHINRYO has developed a number of overseas training programs. These include transfer plans for personnel stationed at overseas bases and a system for dispatch of support staff from divisions in Japan to the overseas various projects.
The purpose of the new system is to strengthen SHINRYO's ability to respond to overseas project opportunities. By gaining work experience on-site, trainees learn at first hand about conditions at overseas Group locations and gain a deeper understanding about living and working overseas. At the same time, trainees enjoy opportunities to build personal networks with overseas local staff, bringing Japanese and overseas staff together in a more close-knit organization.
In this year's short-term overseas trainee system for new employees, 60 new employees will be dispatched to multiple worksites in Singapore, Vietnam and other countries from August to October 2014. Ahead of the program's official introduction, all new employees inducted in April 2013 (50 individuals) were assigned to one of two groups and sent to observe sites in Hong Kong and the Philippines (see photo). By observing the Group's overseas activities at first hand, the new employees completed their first-year training.
The Company plans to roll out other training programs going forward. In addition to the short-term overseas trainee system for new employees, SHINRYO plans to introduce an "overseas practicum system." This program will provide between one and three years of hands-on experience working overseas locations, targeting employees who have been with SHINRYO for four to eight years but do not yet have overseas work experience.
June 30, 2014On-site Engineering Guidance at Overseas Bases Shifts into High Gear
June 30, 2014 - SHINRYO CORPORATION ("SHINRYO") has decided to shift its technology training program into high gear, by dispatching researchers from the Central Laboratory to serve as instructors at overseas Company locations. The aims of this program are several-fold. First, the Company is determined to respond effectively to its growing order book for major overseas projects. Second, SHINRYO seeks to strengthen the ability of its employees, as well as locally hired employees of SHINRYO's overseas affiliates, to put the Company's portfolio of unique technologies to work.
Since 1972, when SHINRYO led the industry in advancing into overseas business, the Company has expanded these operations with steady determination, winning orders for numerous large-scale projects. Focusing on Southeast Asia and the Middle East, these projects include comprehensive orders for electrical, HVAC and heat-source installation in subways, airports, plants and other infrastructure. Today the Company employs some 1,800 staff worldwide except Japan, primarily in Southeast Asia. With consultations on large overseas projects expected to multiply steadily, SHINRYO is urgently confronted with the need to reinforce its ability to respond to technological issues and improve its technology for quality control.
Against this background, in March 2014 SHINRYO began rolling out a series of technology seminars, beginning at PT. SHINRYO INDONESIA and SHINRYO SINGAPORE PTE LTD and continuing in May at Thai Shinryo Limited and SHINRYO (MALAYSIA) SDN. BHD. The seminars provide an overall introduction to the operations of the Central Laboratory as well as the Company's technologies for preventing corrosion, noise and vibration.
These technologies to defeat corrosion, noise and vibration are the Central Laboratory's own technologies, developed over many years of steadfast effort. They were selected as the first themes for the technology seminars in response to mounting overseas demand for them in quality-control applications.
At the seminars conducted so far, a total of 126 employees participated at four Company locations. Seminars addressed measures against a variety of issues, including corrosion in stainless steel, corrosion from contact between metals of different types, noise propagated through pump-line systems, and noise from packaged outdoor units. In addition to seminars conducted at offices, participants attended visits to local construction sites, where they discussed specific technical problems at each site.
Future seminars will be conducted after thorough planning and preparation, to promote the deployment of other core technologies from the Central Laboratory and the application of worksite rationalization technologies developed by the Laboratory.
