Tepco starts up last LNG-powered unit at Kawasaki thermal power station

Tepco starts up last LNG-powered unit at Kawasaki thermal power station

Japanese utility Tepco informed that it has started operations at its LNG-powered Kawasaki Thermal Power Station Unit 3 at Group 2 with a 710 MW generation capacity. 

During construction, the factory assembly scope for the heat recovery boiler was reviewed and increased the use of off-line setups, Tepco said in its statement.

Kawasaki thermal power station started commercial operations as a coal-fired thermal power station in 1961, shifted its fuel to naphtha in 1972 and to LNG in 1984 to tackle with pollution problems.

In 1996 the company revealed a replacement plan and began construction of an LNG thermal power station. The Kawasaki thermal power station began commercial operations of its first unit in June 2007.

With putting the latest LNG-powered unit in commercial operation, Tepco has replaced all six units at the power station.
