Background on Plant

In November 2014 Maeda Corporation announced plans for a 112 MW-plus biomass power station that would be co-fired with wood chips and coal. The projected cost is 30 billion yen. It is planned for the Tohoku region.[1][2]

In June 2017 Maeda announced that the plant will switch from coal-biomass mix-fuel to biomass mono-fuel combustion. Maeda attributed the switch to the rapid increase in the number of planned coal-fired plants in the country and “reconsideration of the plan to reduce environmental impact under current Japanese energy conditions”.[3]
