EPC contractor named for 49MW biomass plant in Japan
Showa Shell Sekiya K.K., an energy company currently developing a biomass-fired power plant in Japan, has awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract to JFE Holdings.
No financial terms of the new contract were disclosed. The plant itself will cost around 16 billion yen (€121.6 million) to build.
The plant will be built south of Tokyo in Kanagawa prefecture. Ground will break in May next year, with operations expected to begin at the end of 2015. It will use woody biomass and palm kernel shells to generate 49MW of renewable power.
