"The Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Europe London and Duisburg teams will in future operate as a single entity, MHPS-EU. Combined, they can support their customers with comprehensive know-how within the thermal power generation fields." This is very much Mr. Klitzke's core belief. The company will continue the thermal power plant business (principally in gas and coal-fired technology) and will also have a stronger offering to customers in energy plant construction brought about by additional products, leaner structures and more efficient project management. Some 2,000 staff are employed in MHPS-EU companies in EMEA area.

Mr Klitzke is confident in his approach to the task. "We can meet a wide variety of customer requirements from small-scale to large scale gas turbines, construction and after-sales service, delivering truly state-of-the-art utility power plants. This is the great strength we have in the MHPS Group." Mr Klitzke added that MHPS-EU in EMEA area has excellent business references, a highly motivated workforce and as a regionally aligned and European-managed company would support its customers in Europe's changing energy landscape while exploring new opportunities in more developing energy markets in Eastern Europe and North Africa. "The EMEA unit is an important mainstay in achieving our aim of becoming No. 1 globally in the construction of thermal power plants."
