Chubu Electric to Transform Thermal Power Unit to Biomass

Posted on : 14 Feb, 2018

Japan’s power utlity - Chubu Electric that provides electricity for the middle Chūbu region of the Honshu island of Japan, has decommissioned two of its thermal power plants.

The two decommissioned thermal power plants are 500 MW Astumi-1 oil-fired power plant in Tahara-shi (Aichi) and two 220 MW gas-fired units (units 1 and 2) at the Yokkaichi power in Yokkaichi-shi (Mie) in Japan).

Out of these decommissioned units, Chubu plans to transform its Yokkaichi-1 unit to a biomass-fired power plant. 

Chubu Electric plans to start construction of the biomass-fired installations in May this year – with commercial operations planned for April 2020. Expected to have an installed capacity of 49 MW, the new biomass fired plant will use wood pellet and palm coconut shells as primary feedstock. 

The Atsumi power plant has 4 units and one of its units - Atsumi-2 (500 MW) was decommissioned in March 2004. The Atsumi-3 and Atsumi-4, uses heavy oil or crude oil as fuel and are still operational.

On the other hand, the Yokkaichi power plant also includes four units: three 220 MW LNG-fired units and the 585 MW Yokkaichi-4 CCGT unit. From now on, only Yokkaichi-3 and Yokkaichi-4 will be operational.
