DUISBURG (March 1, 2022) – Mitsubishi Power, the power solutions brand of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, is strengthening its presence in the Nordic region with the establishment of a new office in Gothenburg, Sweden as of 1 February 2022. The company has also appointed industry veteran and power systems expert Michael Hoven to head, lead and develop the region.

These steps reinforce Mitsubishi Power’s commitment to serve customers’ ambitious goals to become fossil-free and carbon-negative with solutions that provide reliable heat and power while reducing emissions. Mitsubishi Power’s wide-ranging portfolio of technologies and services provide an excellent fit to support these goals.

Carlos Gonzalez Peton, CEO of Mitsubishi Power Europe, Ltd, further emphasizes Mitsubishi Power’s intent to support the Nordic region in the energy transition, saying, “Our aim is to accelerate the power industry’s shift to decarbonization by expanding our mandate beyond traditional power generation, to help create sustainable, climate-positive cities. With some of the best engineering minds and industry-leading solutions, we are well-positioned to support and accelerate the Nordic region’s energy transition ambition, with solutions that can be extended to the current infrastructure, as well as new technologies that will realize the region’s clean power ambitions.”

“The Nordics have taken an early lead in the energy transition race. With a heavy focus on renewable power and great system flexibility, the region will play a pivotal role in wider European net-zero ambitions. I am excited to be part of an engineering and tech giant that will help re-shape the region's energy transition dialogue,” says Michael Hoven.

The Sweden office will enable customers to access Mitsubishi Power’s expertise and its complete array of integrated service offerings. “Having established our branch office in Sweden, we will be able to serve our customers better and respond to their needs more swiftly, flexibly and efficiently. At the same time, we can support our on-going projects to secure best-in-class results for our customers,” says Andreas Rupp, Head of Sales at Business Unit Service.

Mitsubishi Power recently announced a contract with Stockholm Exergi, the largest local district heating, cooling, and electricity provider, to modernize the combined heat and power (CHP) plant - Kraftvärmeverk 1 (KVV1) at Värtaverket, Stockholm, and enable it to handle biofuels and reduce emissions.

In addition to a strong service and plant optimization portfolio, Mitsubishi Power provides green energy technology solutions such as fuel switch and heat pump systems, battery energy storage and hydrogen solutions, to help customers achieve their commitment towards carbon neutrality.
