Japan’s JERA plans two LNG power plants

Japan’s Jera is aiming to build two 650 MW LNG-fueled power plants at its Chita thermal station in the Aichi prefecture.

JERA, a joint venture of Tokyo Electric and Chubu Electric, said Tuesday it submitted a primary environmental impact consideration document to Japan’s industry ministry and local authorities.

This is the first step in four phases of the environmental impact assessment process.

Furthermore, the plan involves decommissioning existing units 1 through 5 and constructing new units 7 and 8.

Under the plan, the firm will decommission units 1 through 4 by March 2022 and unit 5 by March 2027. This means shutting 3.1 GW of capacity in total.

Additionally, the world’s biggest corporate LNG buyer plans to retain the existing 854 MW unit 6.

If the firm decides to go ahead, the two new units would start operations in August and December 2027, respectively.

They will have a gross thermal efficiency of about 63%, helping reduce emissions, JERA said.
