As public concern about global warming has grown sharply in recent years, various initiatives and actions that aim to achieve carbon neutrality have been implemented around the world.
Key focal points of such global activities include the expanded use of renewable energy, reduction of CO2 emissions, and more efficient use of energy.
NYK Idemitsu Green Solutions Co., Ltd. has been meeting such environmental needs both in Japan and globally by utilizing its state-of-the-art AI-powered control technology and highly efficient fuel combustion technology, which can also be applied to biomass fuels.
We remain committed to providing innovative green solutions to all customers by constantly creating and delivering novel value and technology to solve the unique problems facing each customer, while striving to bring about a sustainable society.
- Boiler Control Optimization System “ULTY-V plus” Wins Innovative Power Technology of the Year at Asian Power Awards 2023

ULTY-V plus AT boiler fuel control optimization system
Product winning the Innovative Power Technology of the Asian Power Awards 2023
Product winning the Director-General of Agency for Natural Resources and Energy Award of the FY2021 (41st) Outstanding Energy-Efficient and Decarbonizing Industrial Machinery & Systems Awards
The ULTY-V plus AT is designed to reduce fuel consumption by 0.5 to 1.5% by retrofit installation on an existing boiler control system. This completely self-contained system performs self-measurement, self-analysis, and self-diagnosis in a series of operations utilizing AI to achieve the optimum operation of boilers used in power and other plants. The system also has optional functions: (1) an efficiency and economics program, and (2) an efficiency and economics evaluation by brand.
In addition, NYK Idemitsu Green Solutions has been developing other novel technologies such as BAIOMIX, a new product that leverages IoT technology to analyze the operation data stored in ULTY-V plus AT, visualize critical data on plant operations and fuel management, and help achieve optimal mixed combustion ratios in mixed-combustion boiler operations involving biomass fuels.
