Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger: Two MGS Diesel Generator Sets Delivered for Hotel in Shanghai
— Equipment Being Used at the Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland,
Built in an Abandoned Quarry in the Songjiang District —
TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine & Turbocharger, Ltd. (MHIET), a Group
member of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI)(TOKYO:7011), has
delivered two MGS (Mitsubishi Generator Series) diesel generator sets
for backup emergency use at Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland, a
hotel opened on the site of an abandoned quarry in the Songjiang
District of Shanghai. The delivery was made through the Group’s Chinese
subsidiary Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (MHISH) to
Shimao Group, a major property development firm for Intercontinental and
Hilton Hotels in China. This is the fifth delivery of MGS sets to the
company for a cumulative total of ten units, reflecting the high
reliability of Japanese quality and the product appeal.
Intercontinental Shanghai Wonderland is a five-star resort hotel built
into a huge 90-meter deep quarry, with two above-ground floors and 16
floors below ground level. Construction took over nine years. The hotel
has 336 guest accommodations including rooms below the water level with
views of tropical fish, as well as facilities that make full use of the
deep quarry, including an underwater restaurant, balconies with
spectacular views of waterfalls, and a cliff slide. The two newly
delivered units (MGS1200B) each have generating capacity of 1,000
MGS systems incorporate diesel engines manufactured by MHIET in
Sagamihara, Japan, together with generators and auxiliary equipment from
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine System Asia Pte. Ltd. (MHIES-A) in
Singapore, and MHI Engine System Vietnam Co., Ltd. (MHIES-V) in Vietnam.
They are widely used as stand-alone generators on islands and at other
locations where construction of large-scale power plants is difficult,
and for backup emergency use in buildings. Owing to their quality and
reliability, MGS systems have been extremely competitive in Asian
markets compared to American and European models. The two newly
delivered units were manufactured by MHIES-V.
In China, stable economic growth is driving a wide range of construction
projects, from data centers to large-scale factories and commercial
facilities, both in metropolitan areas such as Beijing and Shanghai, as
well as regional cities. Accordingly, demand for backup emergency power
systems in these facilities is also growing.
Going forward, MHIET, together with its parent company Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries Forklift, Engine & Turbocharger Holdings, Ltd. (M-FET), will
prioritize China as an important market for MGS diesel generator sets,
and seek expansion in new orders on the strength of these systems’
exceptional track record. We will also focus on improving after-sales
service for previously supplied units, in order to further increase
