Japanese company Toyo Engineering has won a contract from Obayashi Kamisu Biomass Power Generation to construct a 50MW-class biomass power plant jointly with Obayashi Corporation in Kamisu-shi, Ibaraki Prefecture.
Under the contract, Toyo Engineering will construct a dedicated biomass-fired power plant that will use wood pellets as primary fuel.
The facility will be a highly efficient biomass-fired plant based on the reheat system where steam, after expansion through high pressure steam turbine, will be sent back and reheated in the boiler, then resent to the low pressure steam turbine for further expansion, resulting in high power generation efficiency.
Toyo Engineering will carry out the EPC turnkey contract on a full turn-key basis, which includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning services for a power generation unit.
The construction is scheduled for completion in 2021.
Toyo has been working on thermal power plants and photovoltaic power plants, positioning the infrastructure field centred on power generation plants as one of its core businesses.
The company has also won an EPC contract from PT Chandra Asri Petrochemical (CAP) of Indonesia and its subsidiary PT Petrokimia Butadiene Indonesia (PBI) for the construction of 43,000 tpa Butene-1 production unit, 127,000 tpa Methyl tert-butyl ether production unit, and 220 tonnes/hour Enclosed Ground Flare.
These facilities will be constructed inside CAP’s petrochemical complex in Cilegon, Banten, on the western tip of Java, Indonesia.
Toyo Engineering will be in charge of a part of engineering and offshore supply services and PT Inti Karya Persada Tehnik, Toyo’s Indonesian subsidiary, will be responsible for engineering, domestic procurement and construction work.
The plant is scheduled for completion in 2020.
Currently, Toyo is executing several projects, including a 400,000 tpa polyethylene production plant for CAP, a 120,000 tpa synthetic rubber plant for PT Synthetic Rubber Indonesia, a joint venture between Michelin and PT Styrindo Mono Indonesia, a subsidiary of CAP.
The company is also executing a project to expand butadiene production capacity from 100,000 tpa to 137,000 tpa for PBI.
