    In 2018, in addition to our well-established remote monitoring services for private power generation facilities using the internet via VPN, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger, Ltd. (MHIET) started new services for marine engines including ship-to-shore communications using cellular telecommunications and ship-to-ship communications in the sub-GHz band. We have thus promoted the use of IoT applications. With this background, we are currently developing a simple, low-cost monitoring system that can provide various services through cloud servers for customers of marine engines, customers that we were unable to reach out to until now. Also under development is an automatic remote control system for customers of private power generation facilities in response to electricity system reform.
