Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding is a Japanese company.

Established in 1917 as the Shipbuilding Division of Mitsui and Co with the first shipyard at Tamano.

In 1937 the shipyards became a separate entity of Mitsui, Tama Shipyard.

The company changed to Mitsui Shipbuilding and Engineering Co., Ltd in 1942 and finally to the current name in 1973.[1]

1995 Mitsui Engineering and Shipbuilding acquired a 75 percent share in Babcock's energy division, which made large boilers for power stations and steam generators[2].
