Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Join Forces to Revolutionize Power-Generator Systems Industry
In a groundbreaking move, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (TOKYO: 7011) have definitively agreed to integrate their power-generator systems businesses through a joint venture. The two renowned companies, who had initially reached a preliminary agreement on December 26, have now solidified their plans to transfer their respective power-generator systems businesses to a proposed joint-venture company, with both Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries as shareholders. The integration is set to take effect on April 1, 2024.
The purpose behind this strategic integration stems from the urgent need to combat climate change and achieve carbon neutrality globally. As countries ramp up efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and transition to renewable energy sources, the demand for electricity, especially in emerging markets, continues to rise. This transition also calls for reliable and flexible power infrastructure to address the variability of renewable energy.
Recognizing these challenges, Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries have come together to consolidate their businesses, technologies, and assets. This integration aims to enhance market competitiveness and strengthen the partnership between the two companies like never before. By pooling their resources, they aspire to expand their power-generator systems business worldwide and contribute significantly to building a carbon-neutral world.
With this momentous collaboration, Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries are poised to revolutionize the power-generator systems industry, providing innovative solutions that align with the evolving energy landscape. The establishment of a preparatory company will mark the initial steps towards the joint venture, with final details expected to be concluded by the end of December 2023.
This strategic move by Mitsubishi Electric and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries signifies their unwavering commitment to sustainable energy solutions and their dedication to addressing the challenges posed by climate change. Together, they aim to reshape the power-generation sector and drive the world closer to a cleaner and greener future.
