JGC Wins EPC Contract to Build One of Japan’s Largest Biomass Power Plants

Muroran Biomass Power Generation GK is planning a biomass power generation plant in Muroran City, Hokkaido, Japan. The EPC contract for the same is awarded to JGC Corporation – which is a lump-sum turn-key contract.

Expected to have a capacity of 74.9 MW – the Muroran City biomass power plant will be one of the largest biomass-fueled power generation plants in Japan.

Utilizing renewable energy feed-in tariffs (FiT), the plant is said to be built in the idle land owned by TonenGeneral Sekiyu K.K.  The plant will be fueled by palm kernel shells and is estimated to be commissioned in autumn, 2019.

As per the contract, JGC will be responsible for uploading the feedstock, as well as its storage and transport, and the supply of other necessary equipment together with the power generation unit.
