Contributing to Safety and Security as well as Environment-friendly Operation by Visualizing Gas Leaks
In recent years, growing risk of incidents and/or fires that originate as a gas leak events due to deterioration of plants in Japan has become a social issue needing to be addressed. At the same time, given the advance of an aging society coupled with a low birthrate, the number of skilled maintenance operators is also declining. This has created a need for continuous monitoring that does not rely on labor skills but can secure the operation safety during gas leak repairs. Konica Minolta provides a solution that enables early discovery and handling of abnormalities through continuous plant monitoring. Using Konica Minolta’s optical technology and image processing technology to visualize the sourcing point and concentration level of gas leaks enables maintenance operators to conduct appropriate maintenance operation of the plant regardless their maintenance skill levels.
In fiscal 2019, Konica Minolta was awarded a full-scale development project for the next three years after passing a careful stage-gate assessment by Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). Through this project, Konica Minolta will contribute to the realization of sustainable society by vigorously devoting itself to this and other social implementation.
