Marunouchi boasts one of Tokyo’s lowest rates of building damage and fires following earthquakes. Recognized as a Business Continuity District (BCD), highly resilient Marunouchi is designed to ensure prompt recovery from suspension of business operations in the event of a disaster. Urban planners do everything they can to keep the district safe and secure. Learn more about BCD at http://www.mec.co.jp/e/safety/
In the Otemachi-Marunouchi-Yurakucho district, the backbone of Japan’s economy, an underground Super Tube infrastructure provides a stable and secure power supply even during disasters.
Marunouchi employs multiple measures to ensure a highly stable energy supply. Its midpressure gas pipelines withstand disasters better than standard city gas pipelines, as proven in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake and East Japan Great Earthquake.
Marunouchi district’s heating and cooling system employs conduits from plants built deep in the earth to reduce seismic shock. The district heating and cooling system is monitored 24/7 by special staff to respond immediately in times of disaster.
