Hibiki Kitakyushu power station was a proposed 1,600-megawatt (MW) gas-fired power plant in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.[1]

In 2016, Japan's Saibu Gas postponed the project after Kyushu Electric hesitated to sign a power purchase agreement.[2] As of November 2019, the project has not progressed in more than two years and appears to be shelved.


The map below shows the approximate location of the proposed power station in Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan.
