About MES

  • About BWSC_MES

BWSC became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Japanese company Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. (MES) through its Danish subsidiary MESCO Denmark A/S in 1990.

MES is listed on the Tokyo stock exchange, and the Group’s activities include the manufacture of industrial plants, ships, diesel engines as well as gas and steam turbines.

Since 1926, MES has been one of the largest senior licensees and principal producers of MAN B&W 2-stroke engines for the marine market.

Through the acquisition of BWSC, MES created a channel to sell their engines to stationary power plants in addition to the marine market.

MES and BWSC have cooperated on several large 2-stroke power plant projects, among others:
  • Macau in 1985, 1989 and 1993
  • Bahamas in 1990 and 2005
  • Mauritius in 1995 
  • Malaysia in 1998
  • Guam in 1997
  • Crete in 2002
  • Cyprus in 2007.
MES and BWSC have also cooperated on the construction of 3 barges (floating power plants), two for the island of Mindanao in 1992, and one for Sri Lanka in 1999.

On the renewable energy front, MES and BWSC have jointly built 2 biogas plants in Japan.

For the 2016 financial year, the MES Group, which BWSC is a part of, had a turnover greater than USD 7 billion and approximately 12,700 employees.
