MHI-MS Licenses Electrostatic Precipitator Technology to Tecpro Systems of India 
Tokyo, June 17, 2013 - (JCN Newswire) -  Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Mechatronics Systems, Ltd. (MHI-MS), a group company of Mitsubishi Heavy
Industries, Ltd. (MHI), has concluded an agreement with Tecpro Systems Limited
(Tecpro), an Indian firm mainly engaged in material and ash handling systems
and balance of plant (BoP) equipment, under which MHI-MS is to provide
electrostatic precipitator (EP) technology to the Indian licensee. The
licensing arrangement targets collaborative and proactive exploration of local
demand for high-performance EPs, which are now marking growth in tandem with
India's increasing number of new coal-fired power plants and ironworks. 
Under the agreement, MHI-MS will provide Tecpro with technology related to EP
engineering, procurement and construction (EPC). With this advanced technology,
Tecpro aims to accommodate a wide variety of EP needs in India, including such
applications as coal-fired boilers for power generation or industrial uses and
incorporation into production processes at ironworks. 
Tecpro's head office is located in Chennai. Since its establishment in
1990, the company has achieved steady business expansion by aggressively
introducing overseas technologies: for example, coal unloading and conveying
systems and large-size blowers. The company has established a solid position in
its Indian market as an EPC company in the BoP field, having already delivered
numerous systems and equipment on a turnkey basis to local power plants and
Based on its Twelfth Five Year Plan (2012-2017), India is currently
undertaking many power plant and ironworks construction projects. In tandem
with the new plant constructions, environmental protection regulations are
expected to be strengthened, resulting in increasing demand for
high-performance EPs. MHI-MS has for some time sought to establish a solid EP
business foothold in India; Tecpro meanwhile has been pursuing business
expansion. The intentions and needs of the two companies have thus meshed and
led to the licensing agreement. 
MHI-MS is a wholly owned subsidiary of MHI launched in October 2009 through
the merger of five companies, all fully owned by MHI. MHI-MS performs a full
gamut of operations relating to water treatment and dust collection systems,
urban development products and test/inspection systems, from development,
design and manufacture to installation and after-sale servicing. In the area of
EPs, MHI-MS has secured its technological expertise from MHI, based on the
latter's vast delivery records in Japan around the world since the
Going forward MHI-MS will continue its quest for global business expansion
through the establishment of close relationships with local partners in focused
markets overseas and the provision of locally optimized technologies and
