It now uses a first-of-its-kind power generation system.

Mitsubishi Power has finished its renovations of the Otake Geothermal Power Station operated by Kyushu Electric Power Company in Japan.

A new power generation system has been installed which uses a "double flash and dual pressure" method, a first of its kind in the country.

This allows for more efficient operations and maximizes utility of geothermal resources that increase the energy output by 2MW.

Commercial operations at the newly renovated geothermal power plant have started earlier this month.

According to a press release, the renovations, which started in May 2019, finished two months ahead of schedule.
