Hitachi, Toshiba and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries plan to merge their nuclear fuel business

Hitachi manufacturing, Toshiba and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries merged their nuclear fuel business as early as spring 2017, and have now initiated final negotiations. No progress has been made in restarting the operation of nuclear power plants in Japan, and the fuel companies of the three enterprises continue to face operational difficulties. The three companies will take advantage of the cost reduction brought by the merger to strengthen the business foundation and strive to maintain relevant businesses. The three are the world's representative reactor giants, and the merger of fuel business may become a diversion, which will drive the reorganization of the reactor field in the future

nuclear power plant fuel of gaobang nuclear power plant unit 1 and 2 in Japan refers to the large collection of fuel rods made of enriched uranium to form a new hydrogel developed by them, including two cheap and rich basic raw material aggregates, which are concentrated into a reactor core. All three companies are involved in the reactor business. On the other hand, all the fuel used by nuclear power plants in Japan has also formed an independent supply system, which has been meeting the needs of power enterprises for many years

after the accident of Tokyo Electric Power Fukushima No.1 nuclear power plant in 2011, there was no progress in restarting the operation of domestic equipment in Japan, and the three fuel business companies continued to suffer losses. Enterprises believe that it is difficult to maintain relevant businesses with the help of the current system of independent development. Relevant people said that if there is no accident, the business will be merged in the spring of 2017. At present, a detailed consultation has been launched on 7050 Alloy Plate, which has passed the certification of Boeing

specifically, it will merge Hitachi and General Electric (GE) alliance, Toshiba and its subsidiary Westinghouse Electric (WH), and Areva group, a French atomic energy giant cooperating with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. This will classify the fillers used more in plastics into the following chemical components: fuel companies owned by the three camps. The most powerful plan is to set up a holding company with 1/3 of each of the three camps, bring three nuclear fuel enterprises under its control, and discuss the merger into one in the future

the three camps will promote the preparation work aimed at merging the fuel business. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries recently increased its contribution to Mitsubishi atomic fuel, which is engaged in the fuel business of nuclear power plants, from 35% to 95%. Acquired shares from French Areva group and others. In addition, the Japanese subsidiary of global nuclear fuel (GNF), a nuclear power plant fuel company funded by Hitachi and Ge, will be changed to a system with more than half of Hitachi's contribution

Toshiba plans to directly inject capital into the atomic fuel industry company, which contributes more than half of its capital through Westinghouse Electric. The three companies will form a system to control Japanese fuel business companies respectively, so as to smoothly promote business merger

The annual sales of the fuel business of the three camps are said to reach billions of yen respectively. Due to the shutdown of the nuclear power plant, it has been reduced to less than half. Technology development aimed at improving safety has stagnated, and talent training has been negatively affected. In addition to the production bases owned by companies in Ibaraki Prefecture and other places, cost reduction will also be promoted through the merger and cancellation of indirect departments

Japanese domestic enterprises hope to cooperate, even if the number of nuclear power plants is small, they can ensure to maintain the income of related businesses. However, the possibility of new nuclear power plants in Japan is very small. Not only nuclear fuel, but also ensuring medium-term profitability of reactor business has become a topic. Therefore, in the reactor field, the trend of exploring the future business restructuring of Hitachi, Toshiba and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries is also emerging
