Currently under construction in Taiki, Mie Prefecture, Japan, the Takihara Log Fuel Boiler Power Station scheduled for startup the first half of 2020 features a new system that will burn whole logs up to 2 meters (6 ft.) long. The Japanese startup Let’s Company, based in Kuwana, Mie Prefecture, developed the boiler system and is also building and will manage the new 1.99 MW plant. According to Let’s Co. President Hideo Kawashima, the new boiler design manages the steam produced from burning green logs to create higher thermal efficiencies than other systems while eliminating many raw material handling and processing costs.
The new technology has already been proven in demonstration tests at one of the biomass power plants already operating in Mie Prefecture, company officials say. Let’s Co. is planning to sell power generated at the new plant to Chubu Electric Power Company, under Japan’s feed-in tariff system for purchasing renewable energy.
