International technology group Andritz has received an order from Toyo Engineering Corporation, Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system. The boiler will be part of a new biomass power plant to be built in Niigata East Port in Niigata Prefecture, Honshu Island, some 300 km north of Tokyo, Japan. Commercial operations are scheduled to begin in 2024.
The PowerFluid (CFB) boiler with reheating system to be supplied features low emissions, high efficiency and availability, as well as high fuel flexibility. It forms an essential part of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant fired with wood pellets and palm kernel shells will generate around 50 MWel of power.
Andritz is proud to be part of this remarkable project with Toyo Engineering Corporation and to make an important contribution towards the Japanese power industry in the transition from fossil fuel to renewable energy resources.
