International technology group Andritz has received another order from Toyo Engineering Corporation in Japan to supply a 50-MWe PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler on EPS basis.

The boiler will be part of the biomass power plant in Tahara-shi, Aichi Prefecture, in Japan. Start-up is planned for 2025.

The Andritz PowerFluid boiler will be integrated into a biomass-fired power generation facility that will be fuelled by wood pellets. With its high efficiency and state-of-the-art technology, it is the perfect solution to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets and contribute towards carbon neutrality in Japan. The biomass power plant will be capable of supplying power for roughly 110,000 households in Japan.

This order once again confirms Andritz’s strong partnership with Toyo Engineering Cooperation. Andritz is proud to be part of this remarkable project and make another important contribution towards the Japanese power industry’s move from fossil fuel to renewable energy resources.
