TOYO Awarded Biomass-fired Power Plant Project in JapanJun. 4, 2018

Toyo Engineering Corporation (Toyo-Japan, President and CEO Haruo Nagamatsu) has been awarded a contract for a project to construct a 50-MW-class biomass power plant jointly with Obayashi Corporation. This plant will be built in Kamisu-shi, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan for Obayashi Kamisu Biomass Power Generation Corp.

The objective of this project is to construct a dedicated biomass-fired power plant using wood pellets as primary fuel. This power generation facility is a highly efficient biomass-fired plant based on the reheat system (*). Working with Obayashi Corporation, TOYO will carry out the EPC turnkey contract on a full turn-key basis that includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for a power generation unit.

TOYO has positioned the infrastructure field centered on power generation plants as one of its core businesses, actively working on thermal power plants and photovoltaic power plants. Renewable energy is expected to continue to play an important role in global warming mitigation, and TOYO will contribute to helping create a low carbon society by expanding our approach to biomass power generation with this project as a foothold.

(*) Reheat system: Steam, after expansion through high pressure steam turbine, is sent back and reheated in the boiler, then resent to the low pressure steam turbine for further expansion. This system realizes high power generation efficiency.
