Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd (MHPS) has opened a representative office in Hanoi, Vietnam's capital city.
The establishment of this new base is targeted at attracting expanded orders for thermal power generation systems and air quality control systems (AQCS) from Vietnam, a country currently pursuing robust plans for expanded thermal power plants.
The representative office in Hanoi will progressively strengthen its capabilities in gathering information relating to local development plans, especially relating to gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC), coal-fired, and AQCS installations, and in disseminating pertinent information to customers.
The newly established base was officially opened as the Hanoi Liaison Office of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Asia Pacific Pte. Ltd. (MHPS-AP), a wholly owned MHPS subsidiary situated in Singapore.
To celebrate the opening, a ceremony was held on 4 November attended by Phuong Hoang Kim, Deputy Director General of the Vietnamese Ministry of Industry and Trade's General Directorate of Energy; Katsuro Nagai, envoy of the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam; local representatives of the power and energy industry and trading companies. Representatives from MHPS included President and CEO Takato Nishizawa; Executive Vice President Ken Kawai, who is in charge of the company's Business Headquarters; and Executive Vice President Masao Ishikawa, who is MHPS-AP's Managing Director and CEO.
The establishment of the new base and unification of information functions in Hanoi were decided in order to enhance the company's information gathering capability and to strengthen its ability to provide information to local customers, to proactively seek out promising new orders.
Going forward, through the new Hanoi representative office, MHPS will respond meticulously to Vietnam's robust demand for power generation and contribute to the country's economic development, with thermal power systems fully harmonious with the environment.
