TOKYO -- May 7, 2013

Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that the digital
instrumentation and control (I&C) system for nuclear power plants in China,
developed jointly by Mitsubishi Electric and China Techenergy Corporation Ltd.
(CTEC), has begun commercial operations. The system is installed in the first
unit of the Fujian Ningde nuclear power plant constructed by China Guangdong
Nuclear Power Holding Co., Ltd. (CGNPC), and is the first of 14 digital I&C
systems for which Mitsubishi Electric and CTEC received orders in July 2007 as
part of the first commercial collaboration between China and Japan in the
field of nuclear power.

The digital I&C system enables overall control and monitoring of the nuclear
power plant for safe operation and efficient power generation. The system
comprises a main board for controlling plant operations, non-safety control
cabinets, safety-protection cabinets and related software equipped in each

Mitsubishi Electric and CTEC carried out designing, assembly and testing. The
system was delivered in January 2011. Mitsubishi Electric is coordinating the
project as the consortium leader and is manufacturing the safety-protection
cabinets, while CTEC is manufacturing the non-safety control cabinets. The
installed I&C system has approximately 180 cabinets, 112 of which Mitsubishi
Electric supplies.

In July 2007, Mitsubishi Electric and its consortium partner CTEC received an
order for six digital I&C systems for CPR1000-type nuclear power plants in
Liaoning and Fujian Provinces from China Nuclear Power Engineering Corporation
Ltd. (CNPEC), an engineering subsidiary of CGNPC in cooperation with
Mitsubishi group companies, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi
Corporation. This was followed by an order for four systems for plants in
Guangdong and Fujian Provinces in 2009, an order for two systems for plants in
Guangxi Province in 2010 and an order for two systems for plants in Guangdong
Province in 2011. Of the 16 CPR1000 nuclear power plants in China, 14 will use
digital I&C systems developed by Mitsubishi Electric and CTEC.

Nuclear power capacity in China is expected to increase from 13GW at present
to 58GW by 2020, and then 200GW by 2030. More than 60 new nuclear power plants
are planned to be operating by midcentury.

CGNPC, a major electric power company, owns seven of China's 16 operating
nuclear power plants and 15 of 29 additional plants under construction. The
company plans to build approximately 10 within the next five years.

Mitsubishi Electric aims to further strengthen its nuclear power business
overseas and win more orders for digital I&C systems.
