Andritz wins deal for Japan biomass plant

International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Hitachi Zosen Corporation to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system to a new biomass plant in Japan.

The plant will be built in Tokushima, Shikoku Island, southwest of Tokyo, and commercial operations are scheduled to begin in early 2023. It will run on wood pellets and palm kernel shells as its main fuels and will generate around 74.8 MW of power.

The PowerFluid boiler to be supplied by ANDRITZ features low emissions, high efficiency and availability, as well as highest fuel flexibility.

ANDRITZ said it forms “an essential part of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid.”

This is the sixth order in a row for supply of an ANDRITZ PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler for the Japanese market.

ANDRITZ is exhibiting this week at POWERGEN Asia in Malaysia. Click here for details.
