Opportunities in the Japanese plant engineering sector

Dramatic changes in Japan's energy and electricity markets open up opportunities for UK companies in the plant engineering industry.

Opportunities in the Japanese plant engineering sector

The Japanese energy market is going through a dramatic reform at the moment. Markets across all energy related industries are opening up to new competition. This represents opportunities for foreign companies to win business in this area for the first time in Japan.

All of Japan’s nuclear reactors still remain offline and the likelihood is of only 2 re-starting in 2015. Japan has had to fulfill a vast energy production deficit by other means. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) demands are increasing globally with Japanese demands showing their highest records ever. Plant engineering firms in Japan are increasing their capability in this area and looking overseas for foreign expertise, technologies and collaboration.
