At the Hitachi Group, the preservation of ecosystems is a major pillar in our efforts to achieve a sustainable society. We believe that supplying fresh water, which is essential to all life, and caring for the environment in which it is found is a crucial element in this undertaking.
One example is the creation of watering holes in arid deserts, making survival easier for animals who live there.
The Hitachi Group is providing the project to protect the endangered Arabian Oryx with a solar-powered desalination plant.
The Palm Jumeirah island is an artificial island currently under construction off the coast of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project is managed by Nakheel Properties, a real estate developer with ties to the local government.
Both Hitachi and Hitachi Plant Technologies were engaged in construction of various systems for the local monorail system, which serves as the principal means of transportation between the island and the mainland.
