Japanese firm Toshiba Corporation has unveiled plans to build a thermal, hydro and renewable power engineering centre at its Keihin Product Operations in Yokohama. The new site will facilitate Toshiba's engineering, design, procurement and production control services.

Toshiba anticipates growing demand for power generation systems in the global market, particularly for thermal and hydro power generation equipment in the emerging economies. Upon completion in January 2014, it will house 1,500 engineers and will operate 24 hours a day. The building, a five storey, steel frame structure, is designed to withstand natural disasters and to secure assets and business continuity.

Toshiba is promoting power systems and related operations as key strategic businesses and reinforcing its capabilities in these areas with upgraded facilities. The company established a new nuclear power engineering centre at its Isogo facility in Yokohama in November 2009 and is currently constructing a smart community centre in Kawasaki that will start operation in October 2013.

The new engineering will collaborate closely with Toshiba's Fuchu Complex in Japan and overseas manufacturing operations in India and China.
