Toshiba and IHI form JV for turbine parts

26 January 2011

Toshiba Corp and heavy machinery maker IHI Corp have announced the formation of a joint venture (JV) to build BWR and PWR steam turbine parts for the domestic and overseas markets.

The JV will enable Toshiba to enhance its turbine manufacturing capacity and strengthen its nuclear power plant business supply chain while it will help IHI in extending its operations to major components of turbines, alongside its current manufacture of nuclear reactor pressure vessels and containment vessels.

The new company, Toshiba IHI Power Systems Corp, is located in a 30,000sq m facility within IHI's headquarters office in Yokohama, Japan.

The operations will focus on the manufacture of casings and nozzles, major components of steam turbines for both boiling-water reactors and pressurized-water reactors.

IHI is a shareholder in Westinghouse Electric Company, which is majority owned by Toshiba.
