GE CEO to meet with Japan industry minister to offer support

Friday, April 1, 2011 3:20 PM

TOKYO, Apr. 1, 2011 (Kyodo News International) -- The head of General Electric Co., the U.S. manufacturer of reactors at the crisis-hit Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant, will hold talks on Monday with Japanese industry minister Banri Kaieda to offer support to Tokyo in tackling the ongoing emergency, Japanese officials said Friday.

Jeffrey Immelt, chairman and chief executive officer of the U.S. conglomerate, will meet with the minister together with Hitachi Ltd. (NYSE:HIT) President Hiroaki Nakanishi. The Japanese firm is a supplier of reactors to Tokyo Electric Power Co. (OOTC:TKECY) , which operates the atomic power station crippled by the March 11 killer quake and tsunami.

Immelt is also expected to visit the office of the operator known as TEPCO, the officials said.

GE has said it will offer technical assistance to the Japanese government and TEPCO by mobilizing more than 1,000 engineers of Hitachi-GE Nuclear Energy Ltd., a joint venture of the two companies.

The U.S. maker has also offered to provide 10 gas turbine generators to help Japan tackle an energy supply shortage following a request from TEPCO.
