Supply of PV module manufacturing equipment

NPC Incorporated has provided PV module manufacturing equipment in more than 50 countries and contributed to the dissemination of renewable energy for over 25 years.

Now we are focusing on providing high-end, custom-made equipment for the PV manufactures in the US, which is the second largest PV market in the world.

Inspection service for solar power plants

We provide inspection and maintenance service to solar power plants in Japan.

This is to contribute to dissemination of solar systems by supporting safe and profitable operation of solar power plants.

Reuse of PV panels

Even if dismantled due to disasters, etc., solar panels may still be reusable depending on their condition.

We send back such panels to market using our network with solar power plants established though provision of inspection service.

Recycling of solar panels

Solar panels contain metals and glass integrated in a way that they are hard to be separated for recycling.

Solar panel recycling is an urgent issue, for which research and development are in progress all over the world.


・Supply of solar panel disassembly equipment (for recycling)

For this issue, we have developed the first solution in the world called “separation method using a heated blade” .

A heated blade separates glass and metal layer, which improves recycling rate of an end-of- life solar panel.

We also developed a Semi-automated Frame & J-Box Separator which can be transported on a truck for on-site separation.

We provide various solutions for environmental issues through innovation using our accumulated experience and flexible mindset.

Separation method using a heated blade

heatedblade eng

Separates glass and metals (cell) with a blade heated up to approximately 300℃ that melts EVA.

This method improves the recycling rate of glass and metals, which is highly evaluated in Japan and overseas.

・Disassembly service for solar panels

We provide intermediate treatment of solar panels discarded in Shikoku area with our own disassembly equipment using “separation method using heated blade”.  Solar panels from other areas are sent to partner companies for recycling and/or proper disposal.

Stable production and supply of vegetables

Stable supply of vegetables is becoming a growing issue due to climate change.

We provide stable supply of safe vegetables that are grown in our plant factory using artificial light.

In-house power generation system using used solar panels reduces environmental footprint in the vegetable production.
