The new Environment/Energy Zone will be equipped with a large-size screen measuring 14m across and 2.5m high that will dynamically present the zone's advanced technologies. Among its features will be photographs and computer graphics showing MHI's highly efficient gas turbines, wind turbine blades 80m long installed at offshore wind farms, etc.

The Museum uses actual machinery and equipment, scale models, video presentations and explanatory panels to present easy-to-understand introductions to MHI's state-of-the-art scientific technologies and products.
