SMC encourage the development of technologies that aim to create a decarbonized society. Here, we show our technologies related to renewable energy and new materials with low carbon emissions and long service lives.
Solar power generation
SMC provide comprehensive services for solar power generation, ranging from drawing up proposals and planning to design and construction. We support a wide range of systems, from mega-solar installations on the ground to roof installations.
Float systems for solar Power Generation
SMC developed a floating system with the power-generating photovoltaic cells floating on bodies of water, such as ponds.
The system is expected to generate more power than land installations since water surfaces have fewer obstacles that block sunlight and the water produces a cooling effect.
Wind turbine tower construction
A technology for constructing 200m high towers for wind power generation without the use of large cranes. The nacelle is installed prior to tower construction. Afterwards, the tower is incrementally added and joined using self-climbing equipment before blades are installed.Detail
SMC developed a new kind of concrete with the following five features.
Low shrinkage: Both drying shrinkage and autogenous shrinkage, which cause cracks, are nearly zero.
Low heat generation: The heat generated during curing is extremely small, leaving almost no thermal cracking.
Low carbon: It can be produced without the use of Portland cement.
Highly fluid: The high fluidity helps prevent defects due to poor filling and saves on labor (improves productivity).
High strength: High strength concrete (70 N/mm² or more) can be used to build high-rise structures.
