AGP Corporation runs a variety of businesses that support airport infrastructure, leveraging its technical expertise. AGP Corporation is the first in Japan to develop a battery-operated ground power unit (GPU), which incorporates Toshiba’s SCiB™ in the battery unit.
A GPU is a vehicle capable of supplying electricity to aircraft parked on the ground. Most mobile GPUs are powered by a diesel engine. As part of its recent efforts to achieve carbon neutrality, AGP Corporation has developed a battery-operated GPU to reduce environmental load, contributing to the achievement of the government-led project “Reduction in CO2 Emissions at Airports.”
Maeda Seisakusho Co., Ltd.
Maeda Seisakusho Co., Ltd. specializes in the designing, manufacturing, sales, and after-sales service of construction equipment, providing special-purpose vehicles for construction sites and public facilities.
Their "spider cranes"--mini cranes equipped with SCiB™ batteries--outperform conventional cranes with diesel engines in the noise level, exhaust emissions, environmental compatibility, and the versatility for indoor application.
Shanghai Hi-tech Control System Co., Ltd. (HITE)
Battery system for Rubber Tired Gantry crane
Shanghai Hi-tech Control System Co., Ltd. (HITE) has adopted SCiB™ in the battery system for Rubber Tired Gantry crane for ports in China, Southeast Asia, the Middle East and other countries.
The regenerative energy stored in the battery when the crane lowers can reuse when the crane hoists or moves the crane body by tires.
The characteristic contributes to the reduction of environmental impacts such as energy-saving and low emission gasses.
Yaskawa Automation & Drives Corp.
Yaskawa Automation & Drives Corp. has been in the business of crane system manufacturing for years, providing those with container crane, transfer crane, and straddle carrier to fulfill the logistics needs of ports in Japan, China and Southeast Asia.
SCiB™ batteries have been adopted for their energy-saving, low-emission crane system, which stores the regenerative power while it lowers the cargo and uses the stored energy while it hoists the cargo.
Self-sustaining solar camera system with LED lighting
Incorporates a thin and lightweight 5S battery pack with long life and reliable low-temperature performance
This self-sustaining solar camera system with LED lighting stores electricity produced by a solar photovoltaic (PV) panel and uses it to power an all-night light and a camera. This system is suitable for use at places where it is difficult to run a mains power line, and can be used at no electricity cost.
A light and thin battery pack is attached on the back side of the solar PV panel. Therefore reduces the risk of battery pack being inundated in case of flood damage.

Solar PV-coupled storage battery system installed on the rooftop of the headquarters building of Daikyo
Daikyo and TELC jointly developed a new storage battery system for use in newly constructed condominiums. This system stores electricity generated by solar PV as well as cheap late-night electricity. The stored electricity is used as a power source for the common area of a condominium or as an emergency power supply in the event of a power outage. The battery system also allows real-time power-state monitoring. (Courtesy: Daikyo Inc.)
Toshiba Elevator and Building Systems Corporation (TELC)
SCiB™ provides uninterrupted elevator operation in the event of a power outage, in a paid option for the Toshiba SPACEL-GRⅡ machine room-less elevator
The optional feature allows uninterrupted elevator operation in the event of a power outage caused by a disaster. The elevator can continue a low-speed operation on battery for up to two hours. Additionally, the elevator does not stop abruptly but instead comes to a slow halt on the nearest floor, and then smoothly switches to battery operation. At ordinary times, the feature provides a hybrid operation with batteries while saving energy by charging the batteries with regenerative power produced during the elevator operation.
Cold roll box
SCiB™ is used in a portable freezer refrigerator for transporting frozen and refrigerated goods
Portable cold roll boxes (CRBs) are used to transport frozen and refrigerated goods from one distribution depot to another. A thin, small battery pack is housed in a narrow space in the CRB. It can be charged in roughly two hours.
