Kawasaki Heavy Industries

Kawasaki started out as a shipbuilding company, originating in Tokyo in 1878 when Kawasaki Tsukiji Shipyard was established. The company has diversified significantly since then, and is now incorporated under Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd (KHI) with a company portfolio including motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles, industrial plants, robotics, trains, and aerospace equipment and aircrafts.

The next venture for KHI is into the marine energy industry, having signed up to a berth at the Fall of Warness tidal test site in October 2011. KHI began developing a  sea-bed mounted horizontal axis 1MW machine tidal stream energy converter in-house in 2010.

KHI are utilising a number of UK companies in the design and manufacture of their device and are looking at assembly and fabrications services based in the UK for the next stage of the project.
