New Energy and Environment
Technology that accelerates the arrival
of next-generation infrastructure
A future can only be expected for “environmentally-friendly” power generation facilities relying on natural sources of energy if durability can be achieved. Efficient power generation is supported not only by high quality converters, but also by high quality power transmission and storage.
As a pioneer in cable and pipe conduit products, “Furukawa Electric Group” is able to offer superior standards in equipment design.
