MES: Diesel Engine Production at Record-high

Thursday, April 17, 2008
Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES with president Mr. Yasuhiko Katoh) attained the output horsepower of the Mitsui-MAN B&W Low Speed Marine Diesel Engine manufactured at its Machinery Factory of Tamano Works amounting to record-high 4.52 million hp (by 200 units) in the fiscal year of 2007, which exceeds the previous record of 4.01 million horse power (by 195 units).
Since the technical agreement with B&W, Denmark (presently MAN Diesel) in 1926 on the production of diesel engine, MES has been producing engines with excellent performance records as a leading engine manufacturer of the world. The annual production this fiscal year is expected to reach 4.74 million horse power, the highest record ever.
To cope with the growing demand of marine diesel engine these days, MES extended its production factory adopting assembly line production (tact system) at the north side of the existing No. 1 machinery factory in the Tamano Works in November 2005 to increase its production capacity to 4 million horse power. Furthermore the extension of heavy machinery C building was also completed in March 2007 also in Tamano Works to establish annual production capacity of 5 million horse power.

MES is also strengthening the after-service sector of the engine business including the newly developed Marine Diesel Engine Performance/Life Expectancy Diagnosis System of marine diesel engine (product names “e-GICS” and e-GICSW) to which the communications satellite and internet are fully utilized, and is committed to ensure the high quality customer service.
