Machinery, Energy & Project
The Machinery, Energy & Project Division is engaged in the machinery business and the energy and 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, analytical instruments, textile machinery, and other equipment around the world. In addition to establishing a new business foundation using DX and creating new businesses in CASE fields such as battery products, we are also striving to reduce CO2 emissions from manufacturing centered on energy-saving environmental diagnosis to achieve a carbon neutral society.
In the energy and infrastructure solutions business, we are undertaking efforts such as renewable energy development toward achieving a carbon neutral society and infrastructure development that contributes toward the creation of a sustainable society.
The division is expanding renewable energy power generation businesses around the world, including wind, solar, hydroelectric, geothermal, and biomass. We provide competitive renewable energy through further power development, including virtual power plants (VPPs*) and decentralized power sources, while not only promoting development in Africa and other emerging countries but also strengthening our power generation business, such as through offshore wind power initiatives. We also provide necessary solutions to mitigate our customers' negative environmental impact, including the switching of ship fuels to LNG and supplying high-quality and clean fuels such as biodiesel. In Miyazaki Prefecture, we are growing cedar container saplings through a partnership with the Miyakonojo Forest Owners Association for promoting the circular usage of forest resources.
Concerning infrastructure development, we are helping emerging countries solve social issues. In areas where we have a strong presence—the Middle East, Africa, and other regions with emerging countries—we are developing infrastructure in many segments, such as through business proposals, finance, basic engineering, equipment procurement, and construction, while also providing operation of infrastructure, including airports, seaports, and water-related facilities.
Against the backdrop of the profoundly changing external environment, such as change in automotive industrial structures due to vehicle electrification, the rapid expansion of renewable energy markets toward achieving a carbon neutral society, and diversified needs in Middle East, Africa, and other emerging countries, the division strives to achieve sustainable growth by taking on challenges in new business domains and solving customers' problems with an awareness of the need to solve social issues, while making the revenue base of its current business leaner and more formidable.

Fiscal year ended March 31, 2022
With the goal of enhancing Indonesia's export capabilities and lowering logistics costs in the country, in December 2021 we took on operations of the automobile terminal at the Patimban New International Port, which had been provisionally managed by a state-owned enterprise. By managing the sea port in a manner that makes it internationally competitive, we hope to contribute to further development of Indonesia's economy.
