Status of MHI Production Bases, Etc.
as of August 10, 2011
No major production bases in the MHI Group sustained significant damage as a direct consequence of the disaster, and all facilities are currently operating normally. Although some difficulty is being experienced in securing necessary parts and other supplies, we are checking suppliers’ situation and making every effort to obtain the needed items.
Based on the results of environmental radiation monitoring data disclosed by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in the period of August 4 through 7, the Nuclear Safety Commission of Japan has confirmed that the levels of radiation detected in the regions MHI’s various production bases located are not of a degree that would adversely affect people’s health. The company will continue to pay close attention to successive monitoring results and other relevant information issued by related authorities and institutions, in order to ensure that customers can continue to use our products in full confidence of their safety.
As a whole, we expect that impact of supply condition on production at these plants will be minimal.
Concerning our factories serviced by TEPCO -specifically, the Kanazawa and Honmoku plants of the Yokohama Dockyard & Machinery Works, and the Sagamihara Machinery Works- as well as the Mitsubishijuko Yokohama Bldg. and our Head Office Building in Shinagawa, we foresee some degree of impact on our operations this summer as measures will be implemented to conserve energy usage. Further information regarding this matter will be posted on this website when available.
