    Expansion of Coal-fired Thermal Power Generation Business in India and Globalization of Indian Manufacturing Base

    Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd.

    The joint venture boiler company L&T-MHPS Boilers Private Ltd. (LMB), and the joint venture turbine/generator company L&T-MHPS Turbine Generators Private Ltd. (LMTG), which were established jointly by Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) and Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to construct high-reliability and high-performance ultra-supercritical coal-fired thermal power plants in India, a country facing constant power shortages, are marking their 10th anniversaries in 2017. Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (MELCO) also participates in LMTG as a contributor. During these ten years, we have received orders for 18 boilers and 15 steam turbines/generators in India, among which 7 boilers and 9 steam turbines/generators have started operation. In the future, we will expand the coal-fired thermal power generation business in India including after-sales service not only for newly-built plants, but also for existing plants and the replacement of aging plants with ultra-supercritical power plants. Furthermore, we are promoting our Selective catalytic NOx reduction (SCR) technology to meet new environmental regulations in India, aiming at the realization of coal-fired thermal power plants with much higher environmental compatibility than ever before. Utilizing the high quality and reliability cultivated in Indian projects, we have also delivered boilers, pulverizers and steam turbines manufactured in India to the markets outside that country such as Japan, the United States, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. We will continue to utilize our manufacturing facilities in India more widely as a manufacturing base for boilers, pulverizers and steam turbines for global markets.
