From the standpoints of energy security and the prevention of global warming, nuclear power generation is important and will soon embark on a new era. Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., was established in 2007 by Hitachi, Ltd., and the General Electric Co. of the U.S. as a means of participation in the nuclear energy business. Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., having inherited the technologies and the experiences of both companies, each with a half-century of experience in the nuclear energy business, is working for progress in that field while promoting highly reliable manufacturing practices. Furthermore, through synergistic collaboration with GE Hitachi Nuclear Energy in the U.S., we offer global services of consistently high quality, ranging from research and development to design, manufacturing and construction, as well as the maintenance of advanced boiling water reactors （ABWR）, fast reactors, nuclear fuel cycle facilities, etc. Hitachi Group’s overall strength, is used to support the reliable,sustainable supply of energy, as part of an effort to build a richer, more comfortable future for people and the planet.
Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., as it pursues the construction of nuclear power generation facilities with a higher level of both reliability and safety, conducts operations in their entirety through a consistent organizational structure. This structure encompasses the planning and design of nuclear systems, the manufacture of main equipment, the construction of power generation plants, and the repair/maintenance of operating plants. Moreover, we actively support the use of cutting-edge technologies by promoting the implementation of ABWR, robotics, and the construction and development of new materials and radioactive-waste disposal systems.
Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy, Ltd., together with Hitachi Group companies, offers products and services that excel in terms of reliability, safety and cost-effectiveness. This is achieved through a consistent organizational structure encompassing the nuclear fuel, the nuclear fuel cycle and, of course, the power generation plant. Additionally, we are mobilizing our collective efforts and resources toward R&D, pursuing continuous improvement in the technological sophistication and economic efficiency of light water reactors—which currently predominate in nuclear power generation—while aiming to the future when fast reactors will be put into practical use.
