Lake Mary, Florida-based Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Americas Inc. (MHPS Americas) recently announced the incorporation of Glastonbury, Connecticut’s PW Power Systems (PWPS) into its global operations serving the energy industry with innovative gas turbine technology.
Bringing engineering and aero-engine capabilities to the alliance, PWPS was initially acquired by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd. (MHI) in May 2013 before its full integration with MHPS in August 2017.
“Integrating PWPS into MHPS Americas broadens our product portfolio and allows us to realize synergies between our various manufacturing and service centers in the United States, while also leveraging the global sales and service capabilities of MHPS and PWPS,” MHPS Americas CEO Paul Browning said in a press release. “We’re also excited to leverage PWPS’s gas turbine power plant turnkey capabilities, and their industrial gas turbine parts and repair capabilities.”
Employing more than 2,000 individuals at its Florida site, MHPS produces aeronautic, gas and steam-powered machinery, and other heavy-duty equipment in the Americas along with AI and low-carbon technologies. Its output includes geothermal turbines, generators and environmental control systems.
As well as sustaining headquarters at the Lake Mary plant, MHPS bases its technology center out of Basking Ridge, New Jersey; operates additional plants in Pooler, Georgia, and Orlando, Florida; and maintains its government relations branch in Washington, D.C.
