Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. acquires Minority Quota of Mercurio S.r.l. Corporate Capital


Kawasaki Gas Turbine Europe GmbH (“KGE”) announced today that Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd, KGE’s parent company based in Japan and the leader of Kawasaki Group (“Kawasaki”), has acquired a minority quota of the corporate capital of Mercurio s.r.l. (“Mercurio”), an engineering and services company based in Verbania, Italy, engaged in the design, construction, commissioning and maintenance of energy production plants, in particular high-efficiency cogeneration plants, and fiberglass machineries manufacturing and processing to further develop and strengthen their long-term partnership to further expand the both companies’ businesses in the energy-efficient solution field in Europe.

Ever since concluding an agreement on business collaboration between KGE and Mercurio in 2016, the partnership between Kawasaki and Mercurio has included marketing, engineering, after-sales support, and maintenance services by Mercurio for Kawasaki gas turbines and gas engines in the Italian market. The partnership has rapidly developed Kawasaki’s energy-related business over the years and has been characterized by continuous growth in numbers and mutual trust.

By strengthening their bonds and aligning the strength of Kawasaki's various products, including high-efficiency gas engines and gas turbines as well as hydrogen-fueled gas turbines, with Mercurio’s dedicated focus and expertise as an engineering and services company with an entrepreneurial culture, the business and capital alliance between Kawasaki and Mercurio is expected to accelerate growth for both companies in the energy-related industry in the whole Europe.

Furthermore, Kawasaki will continue to pursue reliable energy supplies, environmental load reductions, and efforts toward realizing a low- and zero-carbon-emission society while striving to address a diverse array of market needs precisely.

Kawasaki Vision for the Future

Today, our society is mostly dependent for energy on fossil fuels such as petroleum or natural gas.
This is causing the serious environmental problem of global warming and the risk of natural resource depletion. “Hydrogen Energy” offers a solution for securing a stable energy supply and the preservation of the global environment.

Hydrogen has been referred to as the “Ultimate Clean Energy.” It can be used like petroleum as fuel to power automobiles, and like natural gas to generate electricity.
Besides, unlike fossil fuels, hydrogen does not emit carbon dioxide when combusted to produce energy.
We will be able to continue to drive cars and use electricity with hydrogen.
Our daily lives will not change. But thanks to hydrogen energy, our society can be changed dramatically.

Through hydrogen energy, Kawasaki hopes to bring a new future to the people of the world.
This initiative, which draws on the integrated capabilities of the whole Kawasaki Group, has already started.

Kawasaki gas turbines apply the highly precise manufacturing technologies used in the jet engines of aircrafts. From design to manufacturing to after service, we perpetually use our own technological know-how to refine and evolve the outcome. Unrivaled technological prowess and the people who possess and improve upon it -- they are the foundation of Kawasaki's excellence in quality.

KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH again at this year`s Power-Gen Europe in Cologne! 03.06.2014 - 05.06.2014 Hall 7 booth T34!!!

Power range up to 5 MWe

currently in february 2014 a gas Turbine GPB17D isn in hot commissioning for the Municipality Stadtwerke Bernau. Further, shortly before turn 2013/14 KGE agreed and signed contract for one GPB17D with the company CP Kelco.

More GPB17D`s in 2014 to come...


Power range up to 10 MWe

In this Power range KGE can look at a much more succesful year 2013!

After long but fruitful negotiations finally a Gas Turbine GPB60PLUS with steam injection was sold to the company AWS Group as a pilot for the printing industry.

Following an installation of one GPB80D in 2013 for the food company Cargill Deutschland, one unit GPB80D for the Energy provider Vattenfall in Berlin and 2 more units GPB80D with, last but not least, an option of a third GPB80D for the health care company Fresenius Medical Care in St.Wendel!


We would say - pretty succesful performance in 2013 by KGE.

KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH:  A look back at the year's 2012 successful events !


Power range up to 5 MWe

After  successful commissioning of the first european  Gas Turbine Generator Set GPB17 for Industrielle Werke Basel in March 2012, a further additional successful commissioning for one GPB17D for the company Wernsing Feinkost GmbH in July 2012 took place. In the same company a second GPB17D will be commissioned soon. As well as a further commissioning of a GPB17D for the company J.Rettenmaier & Söhne  will happen soon.

As a matter of fact that the Gas Turbine Generator Set GPB17D is a very strong product in its Power range 2 further contracts for GPB17D shown by the companies Nickelhütte Aue and Stadtwerke Bernau – both projects currently in execution.


Power range up to 10 MWe

As well as in the Power range up to 10 MWe KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH can look back successfully to 2012!

After contract signature and successfully commissioning of one Gas Turbine Generator Set GPB60D recently in Romania for the company PREFAB, there will be another commissioning for one Gas Turbine Generator Set GPB80D for the municipal utilities of Bacau.

Further KAWASAKI Gas Turbine Europe GmbH is proud to get domestic contracts in 2012 for the successful Gas Turbine Generator Set GPB80D from the companies Sasol Wax GmbH, KRONOS Titan 2xGPB80D and BASF 1xGPB80D incl. Heat Recovery Steam Generator, Gas Compressor and balance of plant.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) has announced that it had completed the development of a 30MW gas turbine - Kawasaki L30A as one of World’s highest efficiency model in this class, and has launched in the market worldwide in June 2012 at Power Gen Europe in Cologne/Germany.

Combining Kawasaki's long-cultivated expertise in developing small and medium size industrial gas turbines, delivered over 10,000 units, and its highly sophisticated elemental technology in the area of aircraft engines, the L30A offers the following features:

1)    A world-leading generating efficiency of more than 40%, achieved through such improvements as a higher compressor pressure ratio, newly-developed heat resisting materials, and enhanced turbine cooling technologies.

2)    A proprietary Dry Low Emission (DLE) combustion system for keeping NOx emissions below 15 ppm (O2=15%)—the lowest emission level in the world.

3)    A structure offering excellent maintainability, based on the latest technologies and know-how cultivated through the development of KHI’s current and previous models. By adopting the optimal maintenance cycle proposed by Kawasaki, life cycle costs can be significantly reduced.

In the market worldwide, the issue of energy security became highly evident and the need for the on-site power generation has been increasing, also, such considerably potential demand is highly expected because of an ever-increasing power demand, increasingly stringent environmental protection regulations. The L30A is able to provide a flexible solution for such demands as an ideal gas turbine combined with a waste-heat recovery boiler in a cogeneration and combined heat and power (CHP) plant with steam turbine.

Mit neuer Turbine innovativ Gas geben

Eine lang ersehnte Lieferung erreichte am 18. August den Neubau des Zentrums für Energietechnik der TUD: die neue 600-KW-Gasturbine. Das 12,5 t schwere Aggregat von Kawasaki wurde pünktlich ab 8 Uhr vom Tieflader in seinen künftigen Standort gehoben. Die Turbine ist Kern eines innovativen Kraftwerksprozesses, der im Zentrum demonstriert und untersucht werden soll. Es handelt sich dabei um einen integrierten Gas-Dampf-Prozess mit Wasserrückgewinnung. Die Anlage wird eine wichtige Rolle für studentische Praktika übernehmen und dient auch internen Versorgungsaufgaben im Campus. Sie kostet 1,2 Millionen Euro, die zu gleichen Teilen durch die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft und den Freistaat Sachsen aufgebracht werden.
