Austrian Green Energy Boiler for Japan
International technology group Andritz from Austria has received an order from a Joint Venture between Toyo Engineering Corporation and Nippon Steel Engineering Co., Ltd., Japan, to deliver a Power Fluid 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 Omaezaki in Shizuoka Prefecture, Honshu Island, some 200 km southwest of Tokyo, Japan, for the Omaezakikou Biomass Power Plant. Commercial operations are scheduled to begin in mid-2023.
The Power Fluid boiler to be supplied by Andritz 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 as main fuels will generate around 75 MWel of power.
This is now the seventh order in two and a half years for supply of an Andritz Power Fluid circulating fluidized bed boiler to the Japanese market. Andritz sees itself confirmed for its comprehensive know-how and recognized competence in the field of biomass-fired fluidized bed boilers.
