International technology company Andritz has received an order for a PowerFluid circulating fluidised biomass boiler from Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES)
The boiler will be installed in a new biomass power plant to be built on the Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES) shipyard in Ichihara in the Chiba Prefecture, some 30 kilometres to the east of Tokyo, Japan. The plant is expected to commence operating in the third quarter of 2020.
The supply agreement comprises the engineering work, delivery, erection work, and start-up of the fluidised bed boiler, including a flue gas cleaning system with high-dust SCR and auxiliary equipment. The equipment and technologies supplied by Andritz are essential parts of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid.
The biomass power plant fired with palm kernel shells and wood pellets will generate around 50 MW of power, serving approximately 100,000 households with clean energy from renewable sources.
Andritz is one of the leading global suppliers of boiler technologies and systems for generating steam and electricity from renewable and fossil fuels, with a large number of very successful references worldwide.
