Mitsubishi Power Systems will place a new manufacturing facility in Georgia’s industrial “megasite” near Savannah and bring a $325 million investment and 500 jobs with it.
Gov. Sonny Perdue announced the deal Monday afternoon. Mitsubishi will build advanced steam and gas turbines at the site, and service turbines and other equipment for power generation. Construction begins this year, Perdue’s office said, and the company will begin hiring in early 2010.
The company will locate on 119 acres near Pooler that is part of the Chatham County Industrial Site.
