Andritz to supply PowerFluid CFB boiler for 75 MW biomass power plant in Japan

Austria-headed international technology group Andritz AG has announced that it has received an order from a Joint Venture between Toyo Engineering Corporation and Nippon Steel Engineering Co., Ltd., Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system.

According to a statement, 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 GK. Commercial operations are scheduled to begin in mid-2023. The value of the order has not been disclosed.

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 the supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant will be fired with wood pellets and palm kernel shells (PKS) as the main fuels and will have a power generating capacity of around 75 MW.

The order is the seventh in 30 months for the supply of a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler by Andritz to the Japanese market which “confirms Andritz’s comprehensive expertise and acknowledged competence” in the biomass-fired fluidized bed boiler sector.
