MHPS to restructure its equipment manufacturing base in Japan

Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) will be restructuring its Japanese thermal power generation equipment manufacturing base. The company will relocate its gas turbine business to its Takasago works in Hyogo area, while large steam turbines and water turbines will be consolidated at its Hitachi facility in Ibaraki area. MHPS also has plans to relocate its nuclear power turbine manufacturing to the Hitachi works. In addition, the company will be moving its small-to-medium sized industrial business to the Nagasaki works in Nagasaki City and to Yokohama-based MHPS Industries. The restructuring  is likely to create a consolidated structure that will effectively utilise resources that are currently spread across different sites and combine them with manufacturing functions. This is expected to be completed by the end of the 2017 fiscal year.
