Sekisui's Cross-Wave: Shows the Way in Water Conservation
"During my one and half decades stint with general constructor in Japan, I executed large number of projects with 100% success rate and also pushed the sales of product to new height. Now after joining Sekisui, I am going all out to use my vast experience and expertise to institutionalize its hi-tech product, unique and cutting edge technology through the knowledge driven water holding and conservation solution, which has been fully integrated with the finest water saving techniques together with ensuring quick project delivery mechanism through our bases stretching across Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and Delhi,” says Global Project Manager, Sekisui Techno Molding, Mr. Yoichi Takahashi, in an extensive interactive session with Jeet Singh & S.K.Rizvi.

Dwelling in details on the technical attributes of the Cross-Wave material, he added that the Cross-Wave system is very strong, tough and light weight plastic material, which is stacked in layers one on the other and in the process it locks itself uniformly leaving no space for water leakage with uniform water holding capacity with zero level of failures and accident to date. Since it is a light weight material as compared to other products available in the market, it is very easy to transport and simple to install for varieties of civil engineering purposes without any concrete requirement ensuring quick installation qualities as 1,000m3 could be installed in about two weeks.

Installation Technique
To ensure foolproof installation first of all the sheet is pasted underneath ensuring zero level of water leakage and then plastic material is stacked. In totality, the entire process including spreading and pasting the protective sheet, stacking Cross-Wave plastic material product adjusting space and covering with the protective sheets is really very simple. In view of large void ratio, the over ground space could be utilized for various useful purposes as it can easily withstand 25 tons truck load and 45 tons fire extinguisher tender weight and can smoothly move over the surface of the plant. In addition, the space can be put to use for parking vehicles, gardening, Moreover, the entire installation could be achieved manually without using any equipment and involves no repairing work after installation, which in turn again saves lot of time and energy. The polypropylene material used in installation has excellent physical and chemical properties and is eco-friendly as no pollution is caused either to the water stored or to the environment. In addition, the entire system is very simple to maintain and has a life span of over 50 years with high class recyclable qualities as well, he insisted.

Elaborating further on the functioning of the Cross-Wave system, he said claiming that the technique has unique water holding material for rainfall accumulations and easy to be installed within underground reservoirs and it has been certified by the ARSIT, as a Japan's new technology product for ground water conservation purposes. The ground water space created by the Cross-Wave process can effectively control flood of rivers and drainages, besides providing a mechanism through which stored rain water can easily and wisely be put to use for day to day requirements for different purposes including daily life usage, industrial or during hours of crisis including emergencies to extinguish fires.

Applications
Explaining detailed view of its applications, he said to address concerns including the vibrant Indian economy, global warming and above all the drastically depleting ground water table, the Indian government is focusing on green building concept and in such a scenario the Cross-Wave rain water harvesting, ground water holding, flood control and water conservation technique offers huge opportunities across the country. In view of this, the company has set up its distributorship and dealership centres in Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore and Mumbai and as the company is getting increased demand and encouraged response from prospective customers both from the government and private sector players, Sekisui is planning to expand its dealership network to other parts of the country very shortly.

With increased focus on green building and reversing the climate change, the Indian government has decided to push water use efficiency by 20% till 2017 to meet the projected 50% water shortage till 2030. Similar policy initiatives are also currently being implemented in China where policy makers have pledged to reduce the water demand supply mismatch to a half by 2030. The emerging scenario in both these countries has opened up huge business opportunities to the Sekisui's water conservation system, he concluded.
