Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is integrating its sector that deals with power systems with that dealing with general machinery.
The result will be the new General Machinery and Special Vehicles sector. The merger will combine the company’s business units and bring together the sector for 4 000 kW to 15 000 kW stationary engines with engines under 4 000 kW to form the new sector.
This internal change is due to a rise in demand in the engine market for distributed power generation. The company expects a simultaneous expansion in the market for gas engines due to the shale gas development. MHI hopes that by concentrating its resources in this way it can better respond to the current rise in market demand and the needs of its customer needs.
