Andritz to supply a fluidized bed boiler for biomass power plant in Japan
Andritz has received an order from Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO), Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid Circulating Fluidized Bed boiler with flue gas cleaning system for a new biomass power plant to be built in Takaoka in the prefecture of Toyama, on Honshu (main island) west coast some 250 km to the west of Tokyo, Japan for a subsidiary of Equis Bioenergy K.K.. Start-up is scheduled in 2021.
The PowerFluid boiler to be supplied by ANDRITZ features lowest emissions, high efficiency and availability, and highest 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 as primary fuel will generate around 50 MWel of power.
The Toyama project is the third order in a row for supply of an ANDRITZ PowerFluid Circulating Fluidized Bed boiler for the Japanese market.
