MHI relocates chiller operations

JAPAN: Mitsubishi Heavy Industries has relocated its Japanese air conditioning and refrigeration chiller operation from Takasago to Kobe.

The new large chiller plant encompasses various buildings dedicated to assembly, power supply station, and trial operations, etc. Each is equipped with the latest testing equipment and can produce and assess a wide range of products. The engineering, design and service operations have been moved to new building within the same site, which was completed in March.

The site also houses Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Mechatronics Systems Ltd. (MHI-MS), as well as MHI’s Research & Innovation Centre and ICT Solution headquarters.

With solid domestic demand and significantly higher overseas sales, Mitsubishi Heavy says it continues to pursue energy saving performance and products that adopt environmentally sound refrigerants, and aims to expand its lineup of even more competitive products.
