Mitsubishi plans energy centre

One of the largest companies in the world has announced a £100 million
investment in a green energy centre for the UK.

Mitsubishi is establishing an engineering centre in Scotland for research
and development of offshore wind technology.

The firm expects to create up to 200 jobs at its Centre for Advanced
Technology in Edinburgh. Mitsubishi is also acquiring an Edinburgh
University spin-off, Artemis Power, safeguarding 25 jobs.

The move was welcomed by Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, who said:
"Scotland is a leader in the development of clean green energy and boasts a
world-class research and development base that is pioneering technologies
that will have a global impact on combating climate change."

The deal was made by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) through its
subsidiary, Mitsubishi Power Systems Europe (MPSE), and announced at a press
conference in the Scottish capital.
