E-Factory

Throughout the entire process, from product development to contract management, to production and to maintenance/repairs, the company applies the E-Panasia System to ensure thorough management of all projects, and the company has also adopted cutting-edge technologies and automation equipment for its manufacturing systems.
This helps the company strive towards the goal of maximizing customer satisfaction by keeping manufacturing errors to a minimum, optimizing its manufacturing process, and cutting costs.

R&D Highlights
Water Quality and Environment Area

With the ratification of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) Ballast Water Management Convention to preserve the global marine ecological environment, the deployment of ballast water treatment systems is being accelerated for all ships worldwide with the goal of completion by September 2024.
PANASIA has successfully developed its proprietary ballast water treatment system called GloEn-Patrol™. The system combines filter and UV sterilization technologies. PANASIA is now moving on to develop custom systems that address various market needs and trends, including: ship types, routes, operation types, and new ships.

Air Quality Area

When sulfur oxides contained in the fuels of engines for ship propulsion and power generation are emitted to the atmosphere by fuel combustion, they can cause acidic rainfall or respiratory diseases in humans by irritating mucous membranes in the gaseous state.

In response to intensifying regulations on exhaust emissions, PANASIA has developed a total solution. The solution involves increasing convenience in system setups and downsizing systems. Consequently, PANASIA has successfully developed a SOx scrubber system called PaSOx™ that works in favor of existing vessels. In response to intensifying regulations on exhaust emissions, PANASIA has developed a total solution. The solution involves increasing convenience in system setups and downsizing systems. Consequently, PANASIA has successfully developed a SOx scrubber system called PaSOx™ that works in favor of existing vessels.

In 2015, the IMO, International Maritime Organization, limited the content of sulfur in fuel to under 0.1% used in the Emission Control Areas (ECA). In any area other than the ECAs, the sulfur content is limited to under 3.5%. Starting in 2020, the organization will lower the limit to 0.5% and gradually expand the regulation to other areas.

Furthermore, nitric oxides in exhaust gas are the leading cause of air pollution, which in turn results in ozone formation, photochemical smog, and respiratory diseases. Such nitric oxides can be generated at levels exceeding environmental standards from community energy systems (CES), landfill gas generators, food waste treatment systems, and small-sized combined heat and power systems installed at apartments with centralized HVAC systems.

To cope with these challenges, PANASIA has developed a SCR De-NOx System (PaNOx™, PaNOx™ Marine) to remove nitric oxides in exhaust gas and has successfully localized the system. This system is required to be installed on all ships by 2016, when the International Maritime Organization (IMO)’s Tier III entered into force. Using its expertise in its tested offshore systems, PANASIA designed this system to minimize the space its setup occupies onboard.

Shipbuilding Business Area

In the shipbuilding technology sector, there is growing demand for high precision, stability, integration, and automation in cargo ship measurement technologies as ships get bigger.
Now the crucial considerations are: measurement accuracy for expensive cargo such as petrochemicals and LNG, as well as stability in promptly providing data on dangerous goods handled at high or ultrahigh temperature and high pressure.
PANASIA has developed proprietary key systems and materials and has implemented government projects to meet such demand in the shipbuilding industry. The company is focusing on the research and development of localized, high-quality marine systems and materials.

Water Treatment Area

PANASIA utilized its technology and expertise it has built in the shipbuilding industry to develop GloEn-Filter™ which ensures efficient management of water resources and preserves water quality.

In the offshore plant business, in particular, where tested technology and quality come before prices due to safety reasons, the degradation of cooling efficiency and rising energy costs are emerging problems. These problems are caused by scale, corrosion, and eutrophication in coolant used in engines, generators, and heat exchangers. To prevent such problems, PANASIA’s GloEn-Filter™ helps eliminate suspended solids in water effectively, improving cooling efficiency and reducing energy costs.

In addition to the offshore plant applications, PANASIA’s GloEn-Filter™ was also designed to efficiently eliminate process water used at industrial plants, irrigation water vital to agriculture, golf courses and landscaping, suspended solids and foreign bodies produced in water pipes used for everyday and manufacturing purposes.
