Japanese company Toyo Engineering has won a contract from Obayashi Kamisu Biomass Power Generation to construct a 50MW-class biomass power plant jointly with Obayashi Corporation in Kamisu-shi, Ibaraki Prefecture.
Under the contract, Toyo Engineering will construct a dedicated biomass-fired power plant that will use wood pellets as primary fuel.
The facility will be a highly efficient biomass-fired plant based on the reheat system where steam, after expansion through high pressure steam turbine, will be sent back and reheated in the boiler, then resent to the low pressure steam turbine for further expansion, resulting in high power generation efficiency.
Toyo Engineering will carry out the EPC turnkey contract on a full turn-key basis, which includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for a power generation unit.
The construction is scheduled for completion in 2021.
