Andritz has received an order from Hitachi Zosen Corporation (HITZ), Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system. The boiler will be part of a new biomass power plant to be built in Tokushima in Tokushima Prefecture, Shikoku Island, some 500 km southwest of Tokyo, for the Tokushima Tsuda biomass power plant. Commercial operations are scheduled to begin in early 2023.

The PowerFluid boiler to be supplied by Andritz features the lowest emissions, high efficiency and availability, as well as highest fuel flexibility. It forms an essential part of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant fired with wood pellets and palm kernel shells as main fuels will generate around 74.8 MW.

This is the sixth order in a row for supply of an Andritz PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler for the Japanese market.
