Letter From The President


Kawasaki Heavy Industries, established in 1878 as a ship builder, has a history of more than 130 years of manufacturing integrated engineered products. Its business has expanded to include the manufacturing of ships, railway rolling stock, aircraft, and many types of industrial plants, steel structures, general machinery, motorcycles and gas turbines. Its products are found on the land, in the sea, and in the air. By constant attention to production efficiency and through exclusive technologies development internally, Kawasaki continues to develop technologies related to transportation innovations, national land and marine resources development, space development, environmental controls, new energy development and biotechnology development.

In the field of gas turbines, Kawasaki was the first manufacturer in Japan to build jet engines for aircraft in 1943. Kawasaki has manufactured and delivered over 8000 turbines ranging from 200kW to 18MW to our customers around the world since 1974. Kawasaki turbines are manufactured in a state of art facility in Japan, where the latest aircraft engines are also built under the strict quality control.

Kawasaki Gas Turbines-Americas (KGT-A) was established in 1999 as a 100% subsidiary of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. (KHI), Japan, to support and offer better service to our clients in the U. S. and in Pan American countries. Kawasaki offers;

  • Gas turbine generator units for Cogeneration applications (process heat and electric power) ranging from 1.5MWe to 50MWe with better economic performance.
  • Up to 5MWe gas turbine generator units for Standby Power applications, available with dual fuel (gas and liquid fuel) capability for exceptionally reliable starting/synchronizing, enabling continuous operation with pipeline gas (if necessary) without the need for constant refueling of diesel fuel tanks, such as during and after severe hurricanes, tornados, and floods.

Kawasaki listens to its customers and constantly strives to ensure that customer satisfaction is always our top priority. It's just one of our significant differences.
