PC160LC-8: Komatsu adds a new “Dash 8″ to their Crawler Excavator Range

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Vilvoorde – Komatsu announces the launch of the PC160LC-8, the latest addition to their “Dash 8″ range of crawler excavators. With a maximum weight of over 18 tonnes, the PC160LC-8 is ideal for general earthmoving and construction sites. It offers an unrivalled machine management system, increased operator comfort, improved safety, low fuel consumption with excellent productivity, and a low environmental impact. It is available in a wide range of configurations, with a number of different arm lengths, two styles of boom, and in a special, factory built, Low Ground Pressure variant(0.2kg/cm2 ).

The PC160LC-8 includes all the renowned features of Komatsu’s Dash 8 excavators, with high operator comfort, exceptional levels of safety, and top productivity. A choice of 5 main working modes lets the operator optimise the performance of the PC160LC-8 to perfectly suit the task at hand, regardless of the combination of equipment that is used. The variable “Economy” mode gives a strong performance for levelling or for loose material excavation with the best balance between productivity and fuel consumption. Alternatively, when only extreme high power will do – for instance in bulk earthmoving, the PC160LC-8’s “Power” mode delivers truly exceptional productivity.

Inside the cab, noise level is at 68dB(A) a class leading low, and many standard fit features enhance operator safety and comfort. An automatic climate control system, with controls integrated to the wide-screen TFT monitor panel, allows the convenient setting of preferred working conditions. The heated air suspension seat featuring a supportive high back joins helps to create an exceptionally comfortable working environment. To further increase ease of use and versatility, all PC160LC-8 machines are equipped with one additional hydraulic circuit, with sliding proportional thumb switch control, as well as a factory installed quick coupler circuit.

The PC160LC-8 features Komatsu’s unique roll-over protection cab, specifically developed for hydraulic excavators. Komatsu invested over 1 million Euros to test this proven life saving feature and to make sure that the cab’s integrated tubular steel skeleton offers exceptional protection to the operator in the event of a machine roll over. To further increase the safety of persons around the working excavator, the PC160LC-8 is also fully equipped as standard with a travel alarm, anti-slip steps and a rear-view camera.

The latest version of KOMTRAX™, Komatsu’s exclusive satellite-based machine management and monitoring system, is factory fitted on all PC160LC-8 machines. Machine data, including working time, workload and fuel consumption, is easily accessible over the internet. Owners or fleet managers are informed of the machine’s operational status, without having to attend the site in person. KOMTRAX™ can be configured to send an email to a designated person, for instance when the machine shows a caution alert or if it is activated outside an engine lock period. .

Supporting the high standard specification of this machine, Komatsu offers a range of optional extras for the PC160LC-8, such as factory installed diesel particulate filter, automatic greasing system and additional working lamps, allowing the owner to match the machine to specific business requirements.

MHI to Establish Subsidiary in Singapore to Strengthen Global Operating Structure of Machinery & Steel Structures Business

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Tokyo – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) will establish MHI Industrial Engineering & Services Private Ltd. (MIES) in Singapore effective October 1, which will handle the company’s machinery and steel structures business. MIES is aimed to function as a marketing and service base for environmental and chemical plant projects in the Southeast Asia and Middle East regions, where market expansion is expected over the long term. The new company will also serve to execute part of EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) projects, such as procurement activities. Future plans call for MIES to broaden its business scope from environmental and chemical plants to other product areas and become a regional business base for other operations in machinery and steel structures.

MIES will undertake a variety of engineering projects, including gas and oil production facilities, flue-gas desulfurization systems and carbon dioxide (CO2) recovery systems, in addition to its primary focus on chemical plant projects. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Singapore Private Ltd. (MHISP), a wholly owned subsidiary of MHI, will hold 100% of MIES’s capital, which will be S$2.4 million (approximately \150 million) upon establishment but is subject to future increases in step with business expansion. MIES will initially launch operations with 11 employees, with plans envisioning an increase to about 50 within four years. Takato Nishizawa, Deputy General Manager of MHI’s Machinery & Steel Structures Headquarters, will concurrently serve as Managing Director of MIES.

The markets for environmental and chemical plants are basically in expansionary trends along with economic growth and population increases in the emerging countries. Competition in these markets is intensifying, however, due to the significant ascendancy of Korean companies – with Chinese companies expected to catch up in the future – and rivalry among engineering companies in Japan, Europe and the U.S. To respond to these market conditions, MHI has been faced with the urgent task of maintaining and enhancing its ability to deal promptly, dynamically and locally with customers in areas ranging from project development to construction and completion of plants. It was against this backdrop that MHI opted to establish the new company in Singapore.

MHI Receives FEED Order for CO2 Capture Plant from E.ON UK

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Tokyo, Japan- Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI), in consortium with Foster Wheeler Energy Limited of the UK, has received an order from E.ON UK plc, to support the front-end engineering design (FEED) for a post-combustion carbon dioxide (CO2) capture plant proposed as part of E.ON’s planned new supercritical coal-fired power station in Kent, England, UK. The order comes on the heels of the earlier pre-FEED phase awarded by E.ON UK in June 2009. It follows the recent announcement by the UK Government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change that E.ON has progressed to the next stage of it’s competition comprised of a FEED study. E.ON UK is one of two groups competing in the UK Government’s competition to build one of the world’s first industrial-scale carbon capture and storage demonstration plants.

E.ON plans to build a CCS facility at its proposed new Kingsnorth Power Station in Kent. The planned new 1,600 MW (megawatt) supercritical coal-fired power generation plant will replace the existing coal-fired units. E.ON plans to separate, recover and compress the CO2 from the coal-fired flue gas and to store it within a depleted gas reservoir in the North Sea.

The overall FEED activities will further develop the proposed CO2 capture and compression project at Kingsnorth and will involve engineering and design studies, following which the competition winner will be selected by the UK Government.

MHI’s CO2 recovery technology is known as the KM-CDR Process™. It uses the company’s proprietary KS-1 solvent for CO2 absorption and desorption, which MHI and the Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc. developed jointly. MHI’s KM-CDR Process requires considerably lower energy consumption than other technologies and its performance has been highly evaluated. To date MHI has delivered seven commercial plants for CO2 recovery from natural gas-fired flue gas – besides two plants are currently being designed and constructed – making MHI the leader in large-scale CO2 recovery facilities.

In the area of CO2 recovery from coal-fired flue gas, which contains more impurities, MHI has already conducted small-scale demonstration testing for CO2 recovery from coal-fired flue gas at 10 tons/day from 2006 through 2008, and confirmed uninterrupted stable operation. The company is also constructing a 500 tons/day demonstration plant for Southern Company, which is targeted to begin operation in 2011.

For its participation in the CCS demonstration project calling for CO2 recovery from the flue gas of a coal-fired generation plant, MHI looks to propose a reliable and economically viable technology that is applicable to large-scale CCS for coal-fired plants. Simultaneously it aims to vigorously pursue business expansion in this area while also contributing to global efforts to reduce greenhouse gases.

MHI to Produce Gear Cutting Machines in China, Applying New “Shared Factory” Scheme

Friday, August 6th, 2010

Tokyo, Japan – Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) is planning to launch production of gear cutting machines in China at a facility that will simultaneously serve as a production base for other company business. MHI has determined to build a new plant on the premises of Changshu Ryoju Machinery Co., Ltd. (CRM) in Changshu, Jiangsu Province, an existing local production base for the company’s rubber tire machinery; the new facility will serve both for production of gear manufacturing equipment and for expanded production of rubber tire machinery. Adoption of this “shared factory” scheme will enable the company’s gear machinery business to launch local production swiftly and cost-effectively. Production of gear cutting machines at the new plant is slated to commence in March 2011. The initiative will mark the implementation of MHI’s first shared factory scheme for launching overseas production.

MHI decided to launch production of gear cutting machines in China in expectation of large demand from Chinese automobile manufacturers, where output has been expanding rapidly. MHI will initially manufacture its best-selling GE15A Dry Cut Gear Hobbing Machine at the new plant. By securing the same technological features and high quality as in corresponding machines being produced in Japan, the company intends to expand sales to manufacturers of high-precision, small-size gears for automobiles, motorcycles, decelerators, etc. The company looks to produce 40 units during the first year, and 100 units by the fourth year.

In addition to being equipped with various gear cutting machine manufacturing equipment, including assembly and measurement-related facilities, the new plant will also have a showroom to exhibit the machine as well as to accommodate test-cutting requests from potential customers. Plans call for construction to begin this month and be completed next February. To expand production of rubber tire machinery, besides the equipment installations in the new plant, a 5-face machining center will be installed in the main CRM plant.

CRM is an affiliate of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (China) Co., Ltd., the regional headquarters established in Beijing to oversee MHI’s business in China. Production at CRM got under way this past March. Supported by China’s rapid advancements in motorization, production has been expanding smoothly, to the extent that further production capability is now needed. The aim of MHI’s Machine Tool Division, which has been seeking to establish a local production base in China, meshed with CRM’s plant expansion plan.

Sharing of factories simultaneously used for other company business operations enables efficient location of production bases and also trims the time and costs required for setting up a new company. At the same time, the shared factory scheme also enables enhanced local procurement capability by commoditizing supply chains and stabilization of business by absorbing the impact of sharp demand fluctuations for specific products through production of multiple product types.

MHI sees production of gear manufacturing equipment at CRM as a pilot case of its shared factory scheme. Going forward the company intends to apply the scheme to promote further enhancement and expansion of its overseas production plants.
