Shin Nihonkai Ferry Co., Ltd. Website http://www.snf.jp/english.html

*1 Waste Oil and Bilge Concentrator BILCON-X:
This is a system to concentrate waste oil contain water and oily bilge water efficiently by humidification and evaporation method (low temperature humidification) that are generated at vessels. It significantly reduces a cost and workload to treat and unload waste oil and oily bilge water. In addition the humidification and evaporation method is completely closed-system and it does not discharge any processed waste oil and concentrated water to the ocean from a vessel. It helps a vessel to reduce an impact on the environment.

September 2016 The World's first LNG Fueled PCTC(Pure Car and Truck Carrier) equipped with Volcano Oil/Gas Combination Burner Vignis-mini was delivered.

The World's first LNG Fueled PCTC(Pure Car and Truck Carrier) , which was built by Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. at the Nantong COSCO KHI Ship Engineering Co., Ltd. (NACKS) shipyard in Nantong, China, was delivered.
Volcano Oil/Gas Combination Burner*1 "Vignis-mini" is installed in this LNG Fueled vessel.
Volcano "Vignis-mini" is also installed in her sister vessel which was delivered on November 2016.
LNG Fueled vessels are expected to increase as one of solutions for more strict Environmental regulations.

*1: Oil/Gas Combination Burner: This Burner's Dual-combustion-mode combusts the combustible BOG and vaporized gas when bunkering and docking on LNG fueled vessels.
In this operation, those gas can be efficiently used as the fuel for a boiler.
On LNG Fueled vessels, redundant BOG and vaporized gas should be processed by incineration or reliquefaction safely.

ON SEPTEMBER 3rd, 2008, VOLCANO CO., LTD CELEBRATED THE 80TH ANNIVERSARY OF ITS FOUNDATION.

Message from President

We wish to thank you all for the last 80 years, and look forward to your continued support.

It was in September 1928 that the founder of our company Mr. Benji Okihara developed the first Japanese-made low pressure air jet oil burners and established “the Osaka Heavy Oil Furnace Company.”
In 1943, the company was reorganized to a joint stock company “Osaka Heavy Oil Furnace Manufacturing Co.”
In 1963, the company's name was changed to the present name of “Volcano Co., Ltd.”

We have the pleasure to announce that on September 3rd, 2008 the company celebrated the 80th anniversary of its foundation.
I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone and especially to our clients for their continued warm support of our achievements.
At the same time, I pay my respects and thanks to each member of staff in this long history of the company for their courageous and wise actions as well as the efforts rendered.

Through the 80 years of devotion to the combustion/heat decomposition technology, in amazingly evolved industries in Japan, Volcano has been playing an important role in the modernization of Japanese industries and in the growth of the shipping and shipbuilding industries with the expansion of the worldwide logistics operations, and also in promotion of a comfortable and prosperous recycling-based society where importance is placed on the environment and energy conservation.

Especially from the beginning of 21st century, much attention has been given to the issue of a food shortage owing to a population increase, tightness of energy resources and global environmental conservation.
With this background, it is expected in the industries that the combustion related field will develop such sophisticated products that the four parameters of high efficiency, energy saving, low environmental load, and recycling are well balanced and closely integrated with a high quality service that is capable of backing them up.
Towards the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation, to meet their expectation, Volcano is determined to strive for the development of new combustion technology as “Clean-Tech”

Engraving on our mind as the combustion engineering company that this very memorable the 80th anniversary is an important entrance to a challenging new era, we are desirous of further success by responding to the needs of the new era.
I would be most grateful to you all for your cooperation and warm encouragement to continue over the coming years.

Masaaki Okihara
President

Message from President

It was in September 1928 that the founder of our company Mr. Benji Okihara developed the first Japanese-made low pressure air jet oil burners and established Osaka Heavy Oil Furnace Company, the predecessor of the present Volcano Co., Ltd.

Since its inception, Volcano’s combustion technology has advanced and its applications have diversified to include [Burning Units and Systems] producing efficient heat energy with low emission rates for powering and heating process plants, and [Environmental Protection Plants] for disposing of complex pollutants by the incineration technology of heat decomposition. These products backed up by the [Technical Client Service] have been widely adopted in amazingly evolved industries in Japan.,

Through these installations, Volcano has been playing an important role in the modernization of Japanese industries and in the growth of the shipping and shipbuilding industries with the expansion of the worldwide logistics operations, and also in promotion of a comfortable and prosperous recycling-based society where environment and energy conservation are demanded to be pursued.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest gratitude to everyone and especially to our clients for their continued warm support of our achievements.

In the combustion related field in the 21st century, the industries expect to have such sophisticated products that the three parameters of efficiency, energy saving and low environmental load are closely integrated, with a high quality service capabilitybacking them up.

Toward the 80th and further toward the 100th anniversary of the company’s foundation, to meet the expectation of the industries, Volcano is determined to strive for the development of new combustion technology to further contribute to the future recycling?based society demanding economically and environmentally optimized energy use for every heat source.

I would be most grateful to you all if your cooperation and warm encouragement would continue over the year to come.

June, 2005
By merging of the Inspection Section of the Production Headquarters, the Quality Control Office raised to the Quality Assurance Department.

March 2005.
Completed the joint development program of the next-generation type ultra-low NOx gas burners for industrial boilers with Osaka Gas Co., Ltd.

We succeeded in the development of the next-generation type ultra-low NOx gas burners “FX-G series” in order to cope with a possible tightening of environmental regulations in urban areas, and put them on the market.
This burner itself offers the Nox emission of less than 30ppm, which is the lowest level in Japan and sustaining a high turndown ratio of 10:1. In addition to this environmentally friendly features, the high turndown ratio of 10:1 leads to higher boiler efficiency and lower fuel consumption.

The origin of the company name “VOLCANO”

As you already know, the name came from the “volcano” of English language.
If the word is changed to adjectives, “volcanic” or adverb, “volcanically”, the meaning changes slightly, namely, “violent” or “fiercely”.
The name relates to the fire god “VULCUN” that appears in the Roman Myth. At the north-east side of the famous Sicilian Island, there is a famous VULCAN island among many Aeolian Islands. This was the origin of Volcano of English.
The first president of our company used this Volcano as the registered trade name of the low pressure heavy oil burner we initially developed.
However, its pronunciation slightly differs from that of English. We imagine that our first president pronounced the English name Volcano differently, probably in Roman letters.
