The 1,070-megawatt Taketoyo Thermal Power Station Unit 5 has started operations, JERA said in a statement on 5 August.

Located in Aichi Prefecture, the unit is a “high-efficiency coal-fired power station that uses an ultra-supercritical power generation system.

It also co-fires woody biomass fuel which helps reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to lessen environmental impact, JERA said.

“JERA will continue to move steadily forward in replacing aging equipment with state-of-the-art power stations as it works to contribute to the stable supply of electricity and to reduce CO2 emissions,” JERA said.

JERA is involved in the replacement work in the plant through its subsidiary JERA Power Taketoyo G.K.
