TOYO awarded biomass-fired power plant project in Japan

11 October 2018

Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) has been awarded a contract for a project to construct a 50MW-class biomass power plant. This plant will be built in Takaoka-shi, Toyama Prefecture, Japan for Equis Bioenergy K.K.

The objective of this project is to construct a dedicated biomass-fired power plant using wood pellets as primary fuel. This power generation facility is a highly efficient biomass-fired plant based on the reheat system. TOYO will carry out the EPC turnkey contract on a full turn-key basis that includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for a power generation unit.

The reheat system works as follows: Steam, after expansion through high pressure steam turbine, is sent back and reheated in the boiler, then resent to the low pressure steam turbine for further expansion. This system realizes high power generation efficiency.

TOYO has positioned the infrastructure field centered on power generation plants as one of its core businesses, actively working on renewable energy power generation plants such as photovoltaic power plants and biomass power plants. This award also marks TOYO’s second order for a 50MW-class biomass power plants. TOYO will continue to contribute in helping create a low carbon society by expanding our approach to biomass power generation.
