11 Dec 2017 - Kawasaki, Japan/ Chennai, India - Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation
(Toshiba ESS) and Toshiba JSW Turbine and Generator Pvt. Ltd. (Toshiba JSW) today
announced reaching a major milestone in its power systems business: the shipment of turbines
with a cumulative of 200,000 megawatts output capacity.
"The total represents the achievements of Keihin Product Operations, Toshiba ESS's
long-standing main manufacturing base in Yokohama, Japan, and of its only manufacturing
facility outside of Japan, Chennai-based Toshiba JSW. The new record was established by
shipping a 600MW ultra-supercritical steam turbine from Keihin to Doosan Heavy Industries
& Construction Co., Ltd., the main contractor, for EVN Vinh Tan 4 Thermal Power Plant
extension project in Vietnam."
Commenting on the record, Mr. Toru Shibagaki, General Manager of Keihin Product
Operations, said: "I'm very proud of this achievement. Our highly efficient turbines and
generators support us in providing total energy solutions that contribute to the realization of a
low-carbon society and stable electricity supply. Our next target is 300,000MW and beyond."
Expressing his delight on achieving this milestone, Mr. Yoshiaki Inayama, Managing
Director, Toshiba JSW stated, "We established as our manufacturing hub and export base for
thermal power equipment in India with an aim to become World's No. 1 EMPCS
(Engineering, Manufacturing, Procurement, Construction and Services) company. We are
perfectly matched to meet the demand from India and the neighboring countries, the Middle
East and African countries."
Toshiba manufactured its first turbine in 1927, a 23 kW machine. Other achievements along
the way to today's record include the 1966 supply of turbine for Matsukawa geothermal
power station, Japan's first geothermal power plant, and the 1987 development of the world's
very first ultra-supercritical steam turbines, which were installed in Chubu Electric Power
Company's Kawagoe Thermal Power Plant Units 1 and 2.
In 2009, Toshiba integrated the thermal power engineering functions of Toshiba India Pvt. Ltd. into Toshiba JSW Turbine and Generator Pvt. Ltd., a manufacturer of turbines and generators
based in Chennai, in India's Tamil Nadu state. The company, which then became Toshiba
JSW Power Systems Private Limited in January 2014, delivers full EPC solutions for thermal
power plants, and is drawing on these comprehensive capabilities to expand its business in
India and the surrounding region. Toshiba JSW shipped the first "Made-in-India"
super-critical steam turbine rotor from Chennai in August 2015.
