Hitachi Review

Highlight

While nations around the world consider what constitutes the best mix of electric power sources given the adoption of renewable energy, and with both developed and emerging economies facing their respective workforce and equipment challenges, electric power infrastructure needs to remain in continuous operation with safety as its top priority. To support the energy infrastructure, Hitachi supplies solutions that improve the value of power systems to customers by making the best possible use of ICT based on highly reliable plant control technology built up over time. This involves working closely with customers to assess what is happening in the workplace and identify challenges in order to use ICT to implement total solutions for the electric power business that extend from improving the operational efficiency of equipment and optimizing maintenance to speeding up business operations.
