Group, Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc., Toyota Motor Kyushu Inc. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., and Hitachi, Ltd.

    Besides the above, we have been in business to lend large size compressors necessary for drilling wells at plants for geothermal power plants, which are considered to be one of the main clean energy sources. We take pride in our contribution to the CO2 emissions reduction through our business.

    Our major business lies in machine sales, but at the same time we have plans to invest in and create promising businesses, as we, along with Kyushu Electric Power Co., Inc. and Sojitz Corporation, have invested in a power plant construction project in Vietnam.

    Furthermore, we are promoting efforts in renewable energy fields (e.g. solar energy and wind power) to contribute to regional creation and maintenance of the global environment through the renewable energy business.
