 [View Image]

On March 11, 2011 at 2:46 pm, an M9 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Japan triggered a huge tsunami, flooding 650 km of coastline, destroying many cities and towns and claiming the lives of over 18,000 victims. With footage filmed at the centre of the disaster, the documentary “3/11 – The Tsunami” will give a first-hand look into people’s experiences on that day and the hardships they were faced in the aftermath.

 

The footage filmed in 2011 and 2012 by NHK and eyewitnesses in the disaster-hit areas have been collected and edited together in chronological order to convey the impact of this unprecedented disaster, which crushed buildings and cars and led to nuclear meltdowns at the Fukushima Daiichi power plant.

 

Episode 1 focuses on the first three days while episode 2 covers the first year after the disaster. The series also serves as a valuable lesson: In the event of a powerful tsunami, what action can be taken to survive?

“It is our pleasure and honour to work with HKBTS to transform their extensive building rooftops into highly-effective solar energy generating fields. Despite social unrest and the outbreak of COVID-19, the project was brought seamlessly to completion.  The NEFIN-HKBTS partnership is exemplary of the flexibility, expertise and operational skills of NEFIN as well as the trust that HKBTS has in us.We are proud to share this piece of positive news to kick off 2021.” said Clara Kwan, COO of NEFIN Group.

The 316 solar PV panels installed can generate approximately 152,559 kWh annually, offsetting 78 tons CO2 emission per year. The scale of this installation would be equivalent to planting 1,297 trees for the earth.

“A Green and Glossy Gospel: God’s creative love is extended to all God’s creations, calling God’s followers to bear the responsibilities for nature and to testify to the reconciliation and peace of the universe.” commented by President Cho of HKBTS.

“NEFIN has successfully completed several projects around Asia in 2020, amidst the challenges of the pandemic. One of the NEFIN’s beliefs is that the effort to achieve carbon neutrality should not be halted as a result of current temporary setbacks. With another challenging year ahead, enterprises should be prepared for future climate challenges, which may be sooner or least expected, like the COVID19 pandemic,” commented Mr. Glenn Lim, CEO of NEFIN.
