Mitsubishi Electric ships milestone 2,000th turbine generator

Wednesday, Oct 10, 2012

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that it has shipped its milestone 2,000th turbine generator, a 682,000 kVA unit, to a thermal power plant owned by Dominion Virginia Power, a subsidiary of Dominion Resources, Inc., in Warren County, Virginia in the United States.

Mitsubishi Electric, the leading company in the Japanese generator market, has continuously expanded its global market since it started manufacturing turbine generators in 1908. The company completed a large expansion of its generator factory in Kobe in March 2012, increasing production capacity in order to be equivalent to the growth of world-wide electric power demand. Owing to the expansion, the factory has also become capable of producing world's largest-class (2,000MVA) generators.
