カワる、サキへ。Changing forward

In the 120 years since our establishment, Kawasaki has supported the lifestyle of people around the world in many visible ways and invisible ways.

However, the world is also now changing at a previously unprecedented speed. We wish to remain as an innovative creator, always changing, seeing one step ahead and transforming fast enough to keep up.

Changing forward.

We put into words our idea to consistently change and accept any challenges and our commitment to society as it changes as we proceed to step forward.

With this ideal at heart Kawasaki will continue to lead this changing world.

DEEP OCEAN

Around the world, pipelines are laid and stretched out over the seabed.

Kawasaki makes the inspection and maintenance of those pipelines possible to be done by SPICE, a robot that swims in the depths of the ocean.

Through the development of SPICE, Kawasaki keeps broadening new possibilities in the deep ocean, and also the potential for humanity.

Autonomous Underwater Vehicle “SPICE”
SPICE is an autonomous unmanned submersible robot. To provide a stable supply of energy to the world, it will maintain and inspect pipelines in harsh marine conditions, under the 3,000m deep ocean.

HYDROGEN ENERGY

Creating our future - a hydrogen-based society

The dreams of each and every one of us dedicated to the research and development of hydrogen energy can together help move the future forward.

Kawasaki contributes to a more affluent future society and the global environment by building a hydrogen supply chain to provide a stable supply of clean energy.

Changing forward

“Production”, “Transportation”, ”Storage”, and “Utilization” of Hydrogen
When cryogenically cooled to -253℃, hydrogen changes its phase to a liquid state, shrinking to 1/800 of its original volume. At its reduced volume, storage and transportation efficiency increases dramatically, enabling a much greater distribution of hydrogen.
By combining the experience and expertise in cryogenic technologies, Kawasaki will keep pursuing the mission of establishing a hydrogen energy supply chain.

MOTORCYCLE

Motorcycles that brighten up your life.

At Bonneville Speed Week, the famous festival of speed, our Ninja H2 demonstrated its incredible power and potential as the world’s fastest motorcycle.

Kawasaki celebrates and contributes to people’s beautiful lives through motorcycles which pursue speed.

Changing forward

Motorcycle Ninja H2
The Ninja H2 is our ultimate motorcycle, manufactured using our cutting-edge technologies and craftsmanship. Its supercharged engine, enabling mind-bending acceleration, was developed with Kawasaki’s gas turbine technologies. Its aerodynamic devices, needed to help stabilize the machine at speed, were produced with our aircraft manufacturing expertise.

ROLLING STOCK

Rolling Stock—essential for people’s mobility

At our annual Model Railway event held at our company museum, Kawasaki Good Times World, shiny-eyed children share their ideas for dream trains.

Kawasaki contributes to realizing a more prosperous society by manufacturing safe, fast and comfortable rolling stock.

Changing forward

Series E5 Shinkansen for JR East
The series E5 Shinkansen is a high-speed rolling stock manufactured and developed by Kawasaki and other companies for JR East. It was produced aiming to achieve a top operating speed of 320km/h. Its front car has an extended nose to reduce the micro-pressure waves generated when entering a tunnel (also known as piston effect). With such cutting-edge technologies, the series E5 has realized faster yet quieter comfort for its passengers.

MEDICAL EMERGENCY

Life in an emergency

A helicopter soars into the air. Doctors rush to the site requiring emergency medical care and stay with the people in urgent need of help.

Providing air ambulances to safely transport doctors in the shortest time, Kawasaki will contribute to society to ensure secure lives.

Changing forward.

Multipurpose Helicopter BK117
The BK117 is the first domestically produced helicopter developed by Kawasaki jointly with MBB in Europe (currently Airbus).
The BK117 plays an active role as a helicopter for emergency medical services, firefighting, disaster relief, and journalism. The aircraft offers excellent versatility that has resulted in many deliveries to local governments and other organizations.

ENERGY

Electricity in our lives

At night, forgetting the time, a young boy eagerly reads from a book.

The light he reads by is generated by the gas turbines and gas engines responsible for supplying the region in which he lives with power.

By expanding our products and services into regions with an unstable supply of power, Kawasaki will contribute to the good of the planet.

Changing forward.

Gas Turbine L30A
Gas turbines are power generators characterized by being eco-friendly and offering excellent combustion efficiency. The L30A is Kawasaki’s largest, state-of-the-art gas turbine. It is often used in a cogeneration system to generate both power and heat.
Gas Engine KG-18-V
Gas engines are power generators characterized by high operational stability, excellent generation efficiency and low emissions to benefit the environment. The KG-18-V has achieved the world’s best electrical efficiency of 49%, as well as NOx emissions of less than 200ppm (O2=0% conversion), and has been especially well received by medium and small scale power producers.

MEDICINE

Medicines in a human life and health

A baby stares up with an innocent, naive gaze.

The health and growth of the infant is supported by robots that work to create medicines.

Kawasaki has introduced robots into medical and pharmaceutical field, reaching out a reliable hand for the others and in the process contributing for the good of the planet.

Changing forward.

MS005N Medical and Pharmaceutical Robot
The medical and pharmaceutical robot MS005N is active in the creation of pharmaceuticals. With 7-axis drive, precisely accurate movements and an all-stainless steel construction to maintain thorough sterilization, it is both a piece of industrial machinery and as beautiful as a work of art.
