Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas, Inc. (MPSA) has announced that itÊ¼s Board has now approved the construction of a Gas Turbine manufacturing and assembly facility at the new Savannah Machinery Works in Pooler, GA. This will be the first Mitsubishi industrial frame gas turbine manufacturing facility outside of Japan. Construction of the new expansion is set to commence in early 2011.
Mitsubishi gas turbines are in operation worldwide providing clean, efficient power to millions of
residential and commercial customers. The factory will provide Mitsubishi G and J class gas turbines for customers in the Western Hemisphere and beyond, with the assembly of units commencing in 2012.
“With this expansion, Mitsubishi continues to bring positive returns to the people of Georgia, and remains a major contributor to the stateÊ¼s innovation economy,” said Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.“ I am excited that Georgia is home to a leading global manufacturer for the energy industry, and I applaud the companyÊ¼s firm commitment to Georgia.”

manufacturing complex, Mitsubishi has already completed the gas turbine component manufacturing facility, and is on schedule to complete a large service and repair facility in 2011. When complete, the repair facility will provide services for valves, turbine rotors, and generators which are critical for
