Providing global infrastructure that meets the needs of each country, region and society, we contribute to the development of local communities and industries across the world.
In the global power infrastructure field, we are engaged in large-scale I(W)PP*1 and power plant EPC*2 businesses, as well as next-generation electric power business development.
*1 I(W)PP: Independent (Water and) Power Producer
*2 EPC: Engineering, Procurement, and Construction
We focus on developing environmentally-friendly infrastructure to contribute to sustainable development, promoting renewable energy generation from hydro, wind, solar, geothermal and biomass.
In IPP/IWPP investment, the Asia and Oceania region is one of Sumitomo Corporation Group’s major strategic regions (the Asia & Oceania, the Americas, the Middle East, Europe and Sub Saharan Africa and other new markets). We carry out both greenfield projects and acquisition projects to optimize our portfolio. Our strengths include our finance and risk management capabilities, as well as our long-term experience in each local market. The investments are jointly managed by Sumitomo Corporation in Japan and Sumitomo Corporation Asia & Oceania.
Anticipating future increases in power demand, we also aim to expand our business related to EPC projects. Our EPC projects include gas-fired combined-cycle power stations and renewable energy fields as represented by geothermal power generation, in which advanced Japanese technologies offer key advantages. Our strengths in the EPC business lie in project management and execution capabilities. Leveraging these strengths, our market presence and extensive track record, we strive to increase our participation in EPC projects.
