                      April 1, 2005
                      TOKYO, Japan, April 1, 2005--- Hitachi, Ltd. (TSE: 6501 / NYSE: HIT) today announced that it has received six orders for the installation of Flue Gas Desulphurisation Plants ("FGD") in Spain and Portugal. Hitachi's contract is worth approximately 90 Million Euros. This is the first full turnkey FGD order for Hitachi in Western Europe.

                      The contract follows an EU directive which has set emission value limits for sulphur oxide (SOx), nitrogen oxide (NOx) and dust, and will be applied from 1 January 2008. Utilities are required to take appropriate measures to reduce emissions from new and existing power stations. One such measure is to install an SOx removal system (FGD) and Hitachi's FGD system will remove more than 90% of SOx from emissions.

                      The six FGDs are for Abono II (Spain/556MW), Soto III (Spain/350MW), and Sines I-IV (Portugal/314MW, 4 Units). Following installation, commercial operations at the power stations will start to be rolled out from August 2007.

                      The orders are from Spanish electricity company, Hidroelectrica del Cantabrico, S.A. and from Portuguese electricity company, Companhia Portuguesa de Produção de Electricidade, S.A. of the Energias de Portugal (EdP) Group with a consortium partner, Cobra Instalaciones y Servicios, S.A.

                      These new orders follow a deal with Poland's Kozienice Power Plant FGD (200MW 4 Sets) awarded in June 2004. The FGD will be designed and supplied by Hitachi's subsidiaries, Babcock-Hitachi Europe GmbH and Babcock-Hitachi K.K. (Japan).

                      Mr. Shigeharu Mano, President & Chief Executive Officer of Power Systems Group, Hitachi, Ltd., said: "Our success in winning these mandates is based on a combination of our state-of-the-art technology which delivers high efficiency, reliability and availability, and experienced professionals working within a flexible organisational structure, utilising our group company, Babcock-Hitachi Europe GmbH. We are committed to expanding our presence in this market by providing high quality and relevant environmental products.
                      Our proven track record and worldwide experience of building turnkey power generation facilities makes Hitachi a leading total solution provider to meet the industry's growing need to address power generation and environmental protection."
