Just a VTOL testbed, no aircraft.
 
Thanks my dear overscan,

and may I ask you,was that company designed any aircraft projects
after WW2 ?.
 
This wasn't in any sense an aircraft project - it was a research project of a mobile working platform for accessing high locations by Shohei Niwa and Masayuki Suzuki, from the Department of Aeronautical Engineering, Nagoya University. Hitachi Zosen supplied the ducted fans.
