Tsubaki Examples of Use by Industry and ApplicationProducts for electric power generation

InfrastructureProducts for electric power generation

Tsubaki products are playing active roles in the field of renewable energy, such as wave power, hydroelectric power, wind power, biomass energy, and solar power.

Wave power generation

For a project by Ministry of the Environment*, Tsubaki products were integrated in a wave power generating unit installed by Mitsui E&S Holdings Co., Ltd.

*Technology development/verification projects for CO2 emission reduction, and for a compact and high-efficiency wave power generating system (in fiscal 2013 to 2015)
