Machinery, Energy & Project
The Machinery, Energy & Project Division is engaged in the machinery business, the energy solutions business, and the infrastructure solutions business.
In the machinery business, the division provides integrated support capabilities for production equipment, mainly for the automotive industry. In its non-automotive business, the division sells industrial machinery, medical and analytical instruments, textile machinery, and other equipment around the world. We are also striving to create new businesses through the establishment of a new business foundation leveraging digital technology, and from the promising CASE fields.
In the energy solutions business, the division is expanding wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, biomass, and other power generation businesses around the world to help realize a carbon neutral society. We are developing virtual power plants (VPPs) and distributed power sources to ensure a stable and inexpensive supply of renewable energy, while promoting development and strengthening our power generation businesses, including offshore wind development, in Africa and other regions with emerging countries. In the biomass business, we are supplying high-quality and clean fuels to provide the necessary solutions to reduce our customers’ environmental burden.
In the infrastructure solutions business, we are helping resolve social issues in emerging countries. In areas where we have a strong presence—the Middle East, along with Africa and other regions with emerging countries—we are working on many aspects of infrastructure development, from business proposals and fundraising to engineering, procurement, and plant construction, while also providing operation of infrastructure, including airports, ports, and water-related businesses. We are also suggesting solutions toward the realization of a carbon neutral society and the reduction of environmental burden in emerging countries. These include the utilization of renewable energy sources, switching ship fuels to LNG, and supplying biodiesel.
The division is engaged in further strengthening the revenue base of its existing business in response to major changes to the external environment, including structural changes in the automotive industry as a result of the transition to a next-generation mobility society, the rapid expansion of the renewable energy market as the result of a shift toward a carbon neutral society, and the diversification of needs in the Middle East, along with Africa and other regions with emerging countries. At the same time, responding to feedback from our customers, we are undertaking self-transformation and business structure reforms to accelerate growth.
Note: The division’s earlier power project business and the energy and plant business fields were reorganized as the energy solutions and infrastructure solutions fields in April 2021.

Strengthening the Renewable Energy Business
The division not only procures and sells various types of machinery and equipment but also provides comprehensive support services from planning, proposals, and technological development to quality control, efficient logistics, installation, and after-sales services, significantly contributing to the building of customers’ production systems.
A wealth of operational data from wind power stations is analyzed to conduct efficient maintenance, which raises operation rates and lowers operating costs. The division aims to leverage its ability to deliver stable, cost-effective solutions to become the No. 1 wind power station operator in other regions as well.
1st Quarter of Fiscal year ending March 31, 2022
With the aim of helping to decarbonize the maritime transport industry, Toyota Tsusho Petroleum Private Limited conducted a trial in June 2021 involving supplying marine biodiesel to NYK Line’s oceangoing vessels at the Port of Singapore. We intend to undertake initiatives that encourage shipping vessels to switch to alternative fuels with a view to helping to establish the regular usage of biofuels.
