Creating the Future of the Earth with Our Comprehensive Energy Technology
The Nagasaki Works was established in 1857 as Nagasaki Yotetsusho and since then has developed as a central facility for the manufacture of many kinds of machinery. The Works has played a key role as an industry leader in terms of both quality and quantity. The Works presently has an extensive track record in Japan and overseas in the production of thermal and geothermal power plants, and also strives to proactively develop new fields such as fuel cells and integrated coal gasification combined cycle power plants.
At the request of the Tokugawa Shogunate Government, a group of Dutch engineers led by Hendrik Hardes started construction of Nagasaki Yotetsusho (predecessor of Nagasaki Shipyard & Machinery Works).
