Energy Conservation and Renewal
Kinden energy conservation initiatives
Energy conservation diagnosis and equipment diagnosis system
Kinden provides a complete range of integrated services — from energy conservation evaluation and diagnosis, equipment evaluation and diagnosis and trouble investigation to analysis and evaluation of survey results, improvement proposals, improvement design, implementation and inspection. Kinden’s Comprehensive Equipment Diagnostic System, for instance, provides an overall, integrated assessment of equipment energy conservation capabilities and deterioration renewal. It is a total system designed to achieve optimal energy conservation in the interests of streamlining business efficiency and operations.

Comprehensive Equipment Diagnostic Program
Kinden’s Comprehensive Equipment Diagnostic Program is a “total service program” that offers services from studies and diagnosis to energy conservation proposals for the purpose of maintaining equipment systems at maximum operating capability. The ultimate aim? Letting users operate these systems with complete confidence throughout the equipment’s life cycle.
Features of Kinden’s Energy Conservation Diagnosis and Proposals

Japan’s energy conservation control levels have been strengthened as a result of recent amendments to the Japan Energy Law. In particular, precise energy conservation measures and policies are needed in the Operations Division of the industry sector, which will be transferred from a 2nd Class to 1st Class Energy Management Designated Plant. Kinden’s Comprehensive Equipment Diagnostic Program aims at realizing optimum energy conservation measures through the implementation of energy conservation diagnosis and equipment evaluation, and facility management business from renewal proposals, design and implementation to inspection and maintenance.

Renewal Recommendations Based on Comprehensive Equipment Diagnosis

Facility systems renovations make up an important part of Kinden’s renewal services. Based on the principles of facilities management, these renovations are designed to optimize the performance of equipment and systems according to the life cycle of the facilities they operate in.

Renewal operations are an integral field in Kinden’s total systems support service lineup — from on-site field studies to planning, design, implementation and maintenance — as an integrated systems engineering leader. Operations start with the identification and analysis of the problem areas presented by currently operating facilities based on the results of our comprehensive system diagnosis — including deterioration diagnosis, energy conservation diagnosis and trouble investigation. Our engineering specialists use these results as guidelines in determining the proper corrective measures — using our proprietary systems technology to restore existing systems to maximum operating capabilities and develop new and innovative systems custom-tailored to facility needs.
