Diesel engine maker Yanmar to partner with generator manufacturer Himoinsa
Yanmar and Himoinsa to provide solutions for energy markets including cogeneration
On April 27, 2015, diesel engine maker Yanmar and electricity generator maker Himoinsa announced a partnership, including Yanmar to acquire 70% of Himoinsa, to strengthen their solution business for energy markets including cogeneration.
Both Yanmar and Himoinsa are privately held companies, so the amount of information released is quite thin, however we can expect this partnership to help Himoinsa to strengthen business in Asia, where Himoinsa is active since 1999 and currently achieves about 20% of business, while Yanmar will be able to strengthen business particularly in the Hispanic parts of the world.
On the technical and product side, we can expect a range of jointly developed products.
Yanmar has supplied diesel engines for Himoinsa generators since 2006.
