ZAGREB, 12 July 2021 – Croatian electrical, transport and energy company KONČAR, has landed its first ever contact in Japan.
KONČAR, which turned 100 years old this year, has announced that it has made a huge breakthrough in the Asian market.
Following negotiations which lasted over two years, KONČAR Generators and Motors (GIM) signed a deal to design, manufacture and supervise three generator assemblies for two different small hydro power plants (SHPPs) in Japan.
“The first stage of the project will be completed after the synchronous generator with nominal power of 5.2 MVA (240 min-1) in SHPP Shin Sakagami has been successfully commissioned, whereas the second stage of the project will be completed after the synchronous generator with nominal power of 5.2 MVA (240 min-1) and the asynchronous generator with nominal power of 0.546 MW (366 min-1) at SHPP Shin Utsubo have been commissioned,” the company said in a statement.
This contract is the continuance of KONČAR GIM’s successful collaboration with an Austrian turbine manufacturer, and over the following three years, the two companies should justify the trust placed in them by Japanese consultants.
“Because this is the first time Japanese investors have chosen a turbine manufacturer based in u Europe, KONČAR GIM will not only represent itself, but will also act as a pioneer in opening the market for other European manufacturers in future,” the statement concluded.
In 100 years of doing business, KONČAR has delivered products and services to almost 130 markets worldwide and this is the first time it will deliver to Japan.
KONČAR is recognised around the world as well as being a synonym for high level of quality and reliability.
