Pratt & Whitney Power Systems (or PW Power Systems), which designs, builds, furnishes and supports aero-derivative gas turbine and geothermal power systems, changed its name to Mitsubishi Power Aero. In May 2013, United Technologies Corporation sold PW Power Systems to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. Mitsubishi Power is a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
“As electrification expands and the demand for reliable energy grows globally, the role of aero-derivative on-demand power has become even more critical. The socioeconomic cost of power shortages is significant and rising, and power system complexity is increasing due to factors such as rapid expansion of renewables, extreme weather events, electrification of transportation, energy storage, and alternative fuels, including hydrogen. The flexible power generation solutions provided by Mitsubishi Power are essential to helping customers balance their diverse energy requirements,” read the press release.
“We are utilizing Mitsubishi Power supply chain assets around the world to support new equipment manufacturing as well as aftermarket services,” said Mitsubishi Power Aero President and CEO Raul Pereda in a press release. “Our Engineering teams are collaborating to make our gas turbines more competitive, including applications with hydrogen fuel, remote monitoring, and TOMONI artificial intelligence. The financial resources of the broader group also allow us to offer more flexible commercial solutions to our customers. We are eager to collaborate with our customers to deliver power when the world needs it most.”
