The boiler will be part of the biomass power plant in Fukuyama, Hiroshima 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 fueled by wood pellets, wood chips and palm kernel shells. 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 Japanese households.

The new CFB project is the thirteenth ANDRITZ advanced CFB boiler for the Japanese market and demonstrates the excellent position ANDRITZ has in the biomass power plant market.

This order once again confirms ANDRITZ’s strong partnership with the HITACHI ZOSEN Corporation. 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.
