Eighth PowerFluid CFB boiler order to Japan for Andritz
Austria-headed international technology group Andritz AG has announced that it has received an order from Toyo Engineering Corporation to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler with a flue gas cleaning system for a biomass power project in Japan – the eighth delivery in 36 months by Andritz for the Japanese market.
According to a statement, 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 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 50 MW.
This is the eighth order in two and a half years for the supply of an Andritz PowerFluid CFB boiler for the Japanese market, which “confirms Andritz’s comprehensive expertise and acknowledged competence” in the biomass-fired fluidized bed boiler sector.
