Japan to Construct Combustion Power Plants – Power Technology

Power Technology reported today that Japan has collected enough wood waste from the rubble of the March 11, 2011 earthquake to fuel 5 new power plants.

Japan to Construct Combustion Power Plants – Power Technology.

Based on some gross assumptions, the 5 million tons of wood waste they’ve collected will fuel five 10 MW power plants for 12-15 years.

Assumptions include:  the wood waste has an average heating value of 6,800 Btu/lb (20% moisture), net plant heat rate is 14,000 Btu/kWh and plant capapcity factors will be better than 80%.

Power Workshop

I will be presenting a seminar on how to calculate key performance indicators for combined cycle power plants at this year’s ASME Power Conference. 

For more information on the conference – including how to register for the workshop, see ASME’s website.

Looking forward to seeing many of you next month!
