Andritz: PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler for Hitachi

Andritz has received another order from the Hitachi Zosen Corporation in Japan to supply a 52.7-MW PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed (CFB) boiler on EPS basis. 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. 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.
