The EX ROVR Plant Inspection Robot
The EX ROVR explosion-proof inspection robot was created by taking a remote-controlled mobile robot that Mitsubishi Heavy Industries began developing in 2014 for use in flammable gas atmospheres and deploying some practical modifications. MHI is on track to finish development of the second-generation ASCENT model in time for its release in 2022.
Ene-Conductor: Heat Source Control System
The Ene-Conductor is a total solution for the chiller control system of centrifugal chillers and associated equipment. By enabling the entire heating and cooling source system to be controlled by a single package while exercising optimum control over the entire system, the Ene-Conductor maximizes chiller performance. The Ene-Conductor delivers overall electricity savings of around 65% compared to existing turbo chiller systems, helping to conserve energy and reduce CO₂ emissions.
District Heating and Cooling System Solutions
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems' centrifugal chillers are used in a variety of facilities around the world according to their size and needs, including in district heating and cooling systems and factory air-conditioning systems that operate day and night. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Thermal Systems, Ltd. (“MHI Thermal Systems”) is able to propose optimal control systems for district heating and cooling plant applications using customized centrifugal chillers and an optimized service menu to fulfill the customer’s needs.
