We are developing high-value added new business centered on “Ships/Nonferrous metals” and “New energy/Environment”.
As a linchpin of Sojitz Kyushu Corporation and the Sojitz group, the Nagasaki branch is focusing its business on promising fields related to high-value added ships, new energy facilities, nonferrous metals and the environment.
With our two pillars, machinery-related commercial rights and non-ferrous metal-related rights, we, the Nagasaki branch, are aiming to further expand and to permanently develop our business in both fields, focusing on competitiveness, profitability and growth potential as well as eco-friendliness and social responsibility.
With Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., and Mitsubishi Power, Ltd. as our primary clients, we sell facilities and equipment for thermal power plants and plant facilities, ship equipment and aluminum castings and forgings for high value-added ships (LNG carriers, LPG carriers, passenger ships, ferries and special ships), naval vessels and torpedoes.
In addition, we are also engaged in import and domestic sales of turbochargers, marine turbines, marine boilers, special equipment, machinery and materials for propellers, which are the major products of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co., Ltd.
We also handle sales of Cryostar's gas compressors, Kongsberg-Maritime's LNG tank level gauges (radar type) for high value-added ships built by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (LNG carriers, LPG carriers, passenger ships, ferries and special ships), Marioff's water mist fire extinguishing systems and other key equipment for passenger ships. We also sell special products made of aluminum, electric propulsion systems, etc. for naval vessels and torpedoes.
Sales of Gas Compressors for LNG Carriers and LNG Fuel Carriers
We are a sales agent of Cryostar, a company based in France. For LNG carriers, Vapor Return Compressors which are indispensable to the loading and unloading of cargo at LNG terminals for tank operations, as well as LNG Vaporizers, Gas Heat Exchangers, etc. have been widely adopted. Also, to comply with recent environmental regulations, Dual Fuel Engine Compressors are adopted by many customers as propulsion systems for ships that are fueled by LNG which meets CO2, SOx and NOx emission controls. In addition to the conventional steam turbine engine, Dual Fuel Engine Compressors ensure the safe consumption of boil-off gas resulting from volatilization in the cargo tank. Cryostar is now the leading manufacturer, supplying its systems to more than 80% of the LNG carriers in the world.
Sales of Automation Control Systems for Offshore Ships and LNG Carriers
We are a sales agent of Kongsberg Maritime, a leading manufacturer of ship control system based in Norway. Its Dynamic Positioning Systems (DPS) such as DP, K-Pos, K-Thrust, K-Chief Integrated Automation System (IAS), and K-Bridge Integrated Bridge System (IBS) have been adopted by many customers all over the world. Especially, it holds the industry's largest market share for offshore ships, LNG carriers and passenger ships. We will try to grasp the customers' needs, and positively expand sales activities to satisfy their needs in the promising fields of offshore ships, LNG carriers and passenger ships.
Taking advantage of our own long-established global network, including domestic and Asian routes, we are exporting/importing as well as selling domestically various nonferrous metal raw materials such as copper, titanium and aluminum.
