Start-up is scheduled in 2021. The PowerFluid boiler will form part of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant, using wood pellets as the primary fuel, will generate around 50 MWel of power, enough to power approximately 110,000 households.
The Kamisu project is the second order for an Andritz PowerFluid Circulating Fluidized Bed boiler for the Japanese market. Andritz is one of the leading global suppliers of power boiler technologies and systems for generating steam and electricity from renewable and fossil fuels, with a large number of very successful references worldwide.
