MITSUBISHI HEAVY INDUSTRIES AND SUHAIL BAHWAN GROUP INVEST IN WIND ENERGY STARTUP ALTAEROS ENERGIES
Thursday, August 27, 2015

TOKYO - Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd (MHI) and the Suhail Bahwan Group (SBG) have invested in Altaeros Energies, a Massachusetts-based technology company, to support the design and production of its Buoyant Airborne Turbine (BAT) renewable energy and communication platform.

MHI and SBG bring deep strategic expertise in developing and executing large technology projects for industrial and government customers around the world. The Altaeros BAT offers a multi-purpose platform to supply power, telecommunication, and other sensing and security services to remote and off-grid customers.

"There are over one billion people that live without access to reliable electricity and three billion who do not have access to the Internet. We are honored to partner with MHI and SBG to deliver a product that can tackle this global challenge," said Ben Glass, CEO of Altaeros.

The BAT delivers a consistent power output from a containerized platform that is convenient to ship and install at remote sites, helping to significantly reduce reliance on diesel fuel for off-grid communities, disaster relief centers, island nations, and remote industries. The BAT is composed of a helium-filled shell that lifts a wind turbine to harness stronger and more consistent winds 600 meters (2,000 feet) above ground, roughly three times higher than the tallest existing tower-mounted wind turbines.

MHPS DELIVERS FIRST BOILER TO MEDUPI POWER STATION IN SOUTH AFRICA
Monday, August 31, 2015

Source: MHPS

YOKOHAMA - Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd (MHPS), in cooperation with Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe GmbH and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Africa (Pty) Ltd, has completed installation and delivery of the first boiler to be supplied to the Medupi Power Station (located in Lephalale, Limpopo Province) of Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd, a utility company in the Republic of South Africa.

The boiler is the first of 12 units to be installed at Eskom's Medupi and Kusile (located in Nkangala, Mpumalanga Province) power stations, among the largest coal-fired power stations in South Africa. Going forward, the remaining 11 boilers will be sequentially delivered to support the two power stations' combined 9,600-megawatt (MW) high-efficiency power generation: 4,800 MW (six 80 MW boilers) per station. The Medupi and Kusile power stations are slated for completion in 2019 and 2020, respectively.

The Medupi Power Station, after receiving the first boiler, has now begun commercial operation.

The boilers being installed in the Medupi and Kusile power stations feature supercritical pressure technologies that enable more efficient power generation than conventional coal-fired power plants. The result is a significant reduction in emissions of CO2.

South Africa is currently taking steps to strengthen its power generation capacity to cope with the country's rapid industrial expansion. When the Medupi and Kusile power stations are both completed, Eskom's power supply capability will increase by 20 percent from the current level, an achievement expected to make a huge contribution to the South African economy.
