Andritz wins boiler deal for new Japanese biomass plant

Austria-headquartered energy technology group ANDRITZ has won an order from Japan’s Hitachi Zosen Corporation to deliver a boiler with a flue gas cleaning system to new biomass plant.

The Tokushima Tsuda plant will be built in Tokushima Prefecture on Shikoku Island, some 500 km southwest of Tokyo, and commercial operations are scheduled to start in early 2023.

It will run on wood pellets and palm kernel shells as the main fuels and will generate around 74.8 MW of power.

ANDRITZ will supply its PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler, which it said features low emissions, high efficiency and availability, as well as fuel flexibility.

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

This order is the sixth in a row ANDRITZ’s PowerFluid boiler for the Japanese market.
