                      Hitachi Awarded Order from Inner Mongolian Government in China for Two 600,000kW Steam Turbines for Major Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant
                      #
                      Hitachi, Ltd.(TSE:6501) and ITOCHU Corporation(TSE:8001) today announced that it 
                      has received an order for two 600,000kW steam turbines to be installed in a major coal-
                      fired thermal power plant operated by China Hebei Power Company in Inner Mongolia. 
                      
                      The power plant will be built in the City of Tokato, Inner Mongolia, which is located 
                      near the coal-rich Jungal coal fields approximately 450 kilometers west of Beijing. The 
                      facility is strategically positioned to serve the expected rise in demand for electricity 
                      from Hebei province. In the future, China Hebei Power Company will build three power 
                      plants A, B, and C in Tokato equipped with six 600,000kW turbines for a combined 
                      capacity of 10.8 million kW. The area will thus be home to the largest power generation 
                      facilities in China, and part of the output will be supplied to Beijing via high-voltage 
                      cables. 
                      
                      The contract awarded to Hitachi for two 600,000kW turbines represents the first stage 
                      of construction for the Takato A Power Plant and is a strategic project in China's Ninth 
                      Five-Year Plan. Scheduled to begin operation in 2003 or 2004, the power plant is 
                      funded by a US$400 million loan from the World Bank in 1997. 
                      
                      Hitachi won this contract in a competitive bid with leading power equipment 
                      manufacturers from around the world. Hitachi has been involved in technological 
                      alliances in the power generation field in China since the early 1990s. Hitachi won this 
                      contract not only for the high quality and efficiency of its equipment but also for the 
                      work it has done with Dong Fang Power Company, one of the largest power companies 
                      in China, to help it lower its operating costs. 
                      
                      The market for coal-fueled thermal power plants is growing as demand for larger-scale 
                      and more-efficient facilities rises. Hitachi and Itochu will continue working to win new 
                      orders for thermal power facilities in China.
