Japanese firms plan consolidation of hydroelectric power generation system business

Hitachi Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. announced that they have entered into a basic agreement calling for the three companies to consolidate their hydroelectric power generation system operations.

Discussions toward this end have been under way since last year, when a basic agreement regarding the hydropower business consolidation was reached.

The three companies agreed to establish a preparatory company in May 2011 as a subsidiary of Hitachi and to transfer their hydroelectric power generation system operations to the preparatory company by way of simplified company split, a press release states.

Against this backdrop, Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric and MHI reached a common recognition that the most effective means to strengthen and expand related business would be to pool their respective operating resources and engage jointly in hydroelectric power generation system operations, a press release states.
