MHPS Completes World-class Combustion Test Facility for Boilers Used in Thermal Power Generation Systems
-- Integrating Combustion Technologies of MHI and Hitachi --


Yokohama, October 22, 2014 - Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) today completed the construction of a combustion test facility for boilers used in thermal power generation applications. Located on the premises of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd.'s (MHI) Nagasaki Research & Development Center, the new facility is equipped with the cutting-edge measuring/monitoring systems and has one of the world's largest capacities: 4 tons of coal combustion per hour. By integrating the combustion technologies of MHI and Hitachi, Ltd. (including those formerly held by Babcock-Hitachi K.K. (BHK)), the new combustion test facility was built to achieve more advanced combustion technologies - the core factor in boiler business - in terms of lower emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), less unburned combustibles, lower excess air ratio, etc.
