As a leading environmentally conscious corporate group, NYK kicked off its newest environmental campaign, the NYK Cool Earth Project, in April 2008 and has been taking the initiative in environmental issues. In December 2008, NYK started at-sea testing of photovoltaic arrays installed on a pure car carrier (PCC). This marks the first time that a photovoltaic system has ever been connected directly to a vessel's main power line. The system has been operating successfully, and NYK is continuing its efforts to develop energy-saving vessels and reduce CO2 emissions.
