Efficient biomass for Japan

13. February 2020

 

The international technology group ANDRITZ has been awarded a contract in Japan to supply a PowerFluid fluidised bed boiler including a flue gas cleaning system. The boiler, which is being installed some 200 km southwest of Tokyo, is part of a new biomass power plant for feeding green energy into the public power grid. The power plant is fired by wood pellets and palm kernel shells as the primary fuels and will deliver around 75 MWe of electricity.


 

ANDRITZ to supply a further high-efficiency PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler for a biomass power plant in Japan

 

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 Gamagori in Aichi Prefecture, Honshu Island, some 300 km southwest of Tokyo, Japan. Commercial operations are scheduled to begin in 2023. The PowerFluid 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 will generate around 50 MWel of power.

This is the eighth order in two and a half years for supply of an ANDRITZ PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler for the Japanese market, and it confirms ANDRITZ’s comprehensive expertise and acknowledged competence in the biomass-fired, fluidized bed boiler sector. ANDRITZ is one of the leading global suppliers of power boiler technologies and systems for generating steam and electricity from renewable and fossil fuels, with a large number of very successful references worldwide.

Revolutionary drilling technology

Working together with other European partners, the Montanuniversität Leoben has developed a revolutionary drilling technology to enable geothermal energy to be used for generating electricity and heat. It achieves this by combining conventional roller chisel technology with water jet cutting technology. This doubles the drilling speed while at the same time reducing costs by about 20%. As opposed to the majority of other renewable energy sources, electricity produced from geothermal energy is suitable for base load power generation. More →
