Fujitsu pilot will help Thailand monitor industrial pollution
Fujitsu of Japan is offering to allow the Thai government to use its innovative environment monitoring system to ease pollution at Map Ta Phut industrial estate through a pilot project.
The information and communications technology (ICT) equipment supplier said it will show the Thais how the technology can be applied to control pollution in the food and energy sectors.
"We're planning to use our local Thai operating unit as a springboard to expand business to Indochina," Masami Yamamoto, the president and representative director of Fujitsu Ltd, told the Bangkok Post after a session at the World Economic Forum.
Fujitsu is in talks with the ICT Ministry and the National Science and Technology Development Agency concerning use of the company's sensor to monitor the environment at five locations in Map Ta Phut, which is located in Rayong province southeast of Bangkok.
Mr Yamamoto said Fujitsu is considering relocating its production bases and supply chains to various countries to reduce risk from natural disasters.
The company plans to adopt a more global supply chain management as well as multi-supply chain systems to help it rebound faster from unexpected situations.
