Daisuke Murata appointed as MD, Toshiba JSW Power Systems

Toshiba JSW Power Systems (Toshiba JSW), a joint venture between Japan's Toshiba Group and India's JSW Group appointed Daisuke Murata as its new Managing Director. He graduated from the University of Tokyo with a degree of Bachelor of Engineering, and joined the Toshiba Group in 1994. For three decades, he worked on engineering and manufacturing of large equipment for power sectors and later was responsible for business development utilising new technology. During this period, he gained valuable knowledge and experience in design and procurement of the generator, production planning and control of the turbine and generator, technical leading and management of the new businesses, and application of new technology such as heavy ion therapy systems and superconducting.

His illustrious experience and expertise earned him the position of Technology Executive of Keihin Factory, Toshiba Energy Systems and Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS), the parent company of Toshiba JSW in 2020. In 2021, he was appointed Head of the new business unit in the Power Systems Division of Toshiba ESS.

Commenting on his appointment as MD, Toshiba JSW, he said, “Toshiba is dedicated to promoting sustainable development worldwide. At Toshiba JSW, we possess the expertise and experience to deliver high quality power generation equipment and maintenance services to power plants, aimed at enhancing efficiency, minimising downtime and reducing carbon emissions. In my new role at Toshiba JSW, I aim to bolster the Make-in-India programme and Export-from-India initiatives by expanding our business presence in overseas markets including Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa. By fully utilising our world-class manufacturing facility in Chennai and the Global Engineering Centre in Gurgaon, we will provide high quality products and services, supported by excellent installation supervision by our certified Indian technical advisors to our customers in India and globally.”

Toshiba JSW is committed to improve and modernise the power sector, accelerating the transition towards a carbon neutral society. The company offers high efficiency equipment and service to existing power plants which can help in reduction of CO2 emissions and keeping high availability. Recently, it demonstrated its comprehensive service capabilities by restoring a unit to limited capacity power generation within a short span of three months following unplanned shutdown due to low pressure (LP) turbine damage. The company also offers effective solutions for ’preventive maintenance’ by way of advanced digital IoT solutions like EtaPROâ for power plants which further help in improving the efficiency and reliability of power generating assets.

In addition, in cooperation with Toshiba ESS, it continues to provide Carbon Dioxide Capture Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) solutions, which helps  separate and capture CO2 from its source such as thermal power plants. The captured CO2 can later be used in a different form for a different purpose. Currently, Toshiba JSW engineers are undergoing extensive training and preparing for taking up the work for CCUS in the future.

“Toshiba JSW operates a state-of-the-art heavy engineering manufacturing facility located in Chennai, which boasts modern high-precision machines and fabrication facilities. Our facility is perfectly suited for manufacturing, assembly, and testing of large-sized precision components for thermal power and other industries. We offer comprehensive solutions to our clients through the Japanese quality management system, ensuring all their manufacturing needs are met under one roof. We have already manufactured products for other industries and additionally are in extensive talks with potential customers to offer our facilities for contract manufacturing for power as well as other industries,” he further added.

Toshiba JSW Power Systems is a joint venture between Japan's Toshiba Group and India's JSW Group. A long-standing partner to India's evolving energy requirements, the company offers high quality maintenance services to power plants that can enable and accelerate transformation to help decarbonise energy generation.
