IHI Corp., a major heavy industry company, announced Wednesday that its subsidiary, IHI Power Systems Co., is falsifying data on the performance of engines used in ships and trains. The company has presented falsified fuel economy figures to its customers to make performance appear higher than it actually is.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is investigating the matter in detail.

According to the announcement, IHI had falsified data on 4,361 engines for ships, trains and other vehicles shipped since 2003.

A special investigative committee will be set up, consisting of external experts, including lawyers, to determine the cause and take measures to prevent recurrence.

IHI sincerely apologizes for violating everyone’s trust and causing great inconvenience and concern.
