gas Combined Cycle demonstration plant.
The lump sum turnkey contract calls for the EPC services associated with construction of gas purification and other core facilities for an oxygen blown Integrated Coal Gasification Combined Cycle demonstration plant with a generating capacity of 170MW class.
It is expected that the project would be completed in February of 2017 and located in Chugoku Electric Osaki power station in Hiroshima.
Osaki CoolGen Corporation has received funding from METI METI Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (Japan; formerly MITI)
METI Medical Education Technologies, Inc. to design and construct the first stage, the IGCC demonstration plant.
The oxygen-blown coal IGCC demonstration plant facilities include a coal handling system, oxygen-blown coal gasifier, gas purification unit, sulfur recovery unit, air separation unit, wastewater treating unit, gas turbine combined cycle power generation unit (GTCC), and other associated equipment.
JGC will be responsible for EPC and commissioning work for the gas purification unit, incinerator and sulfur recovery unit, air separation unit, wastewater treating unit, and other associated equipment of these facilities.
The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry The Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (経済産業省 has been promoting research initiative to realize zero-emission coal-fired thermal power generation, by using Integrated Coal Gasification Fuel Cell Combined Cycle technology in combination with carbon capture and storage Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is an approach to mitigating global warming by capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) from large point sources such as power plants and subsequently storing it instead of releasing it into the atmosphere. .
The CoolGen demonstration plant is a part of this initiative. The first stage of the research involves testing IGCC technology in a demonstration plant. The second stage will be to incorporate carbon capture and storage facilities, and the third stage will be to incorporate fuel cells.
