RENOVA's Ishinomaki Hibarino biomass power plant commenced operation on 28 March this year.
The facility has a generation capacity of 75.0 MW and is fueled by wood pellets and palm kernel shells.
Preparations for the unit were made by Ishinomaki Hibarino Biomass Energy G.K., which is jointly funded by RENOVA, Prominet Power Co., Ltd., a wholly owned subsidiary of Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd., United Purpose Management, Inc. and Mizuho Leasing.
The biomass plant is located in Ishinomaki’s Hibarino area, which Miyagi Prefecture has been reclaiming and landscaping since 1997 as an industrial site.
Further development and revitalisation of the port are also expected in the future, with the number of vessels visiting Ishinomaki Hibarino wharf expected to increase significantly due to procurement of fuel.
Drawing on the lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami that occurred in 2011, the plant is equipped with design and safety measures that fully anticipate the height of a tsunami in the event of an earthquake.
Going forward, RENOVA said it will operate the power plant while prioritising coexistence with the local community and safety.
"We will seek to contribute to the achievement of a decarbonized society in cooperation with local residents and other stakeholders," said the company.
