 Hirono IGCC Power GK have been established for the construction and operation of the world’s most advanced coal-fired power plants in Fukushima, Japan by Mitsubishi Corporation Power Ltd., a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation, along with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, and Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings, Inc.

 IGCC is more efficient than the highest standard in conventional pulverized coal firing systems, so that CO2 and soot emissions per generated energy are reduced. Therefore, IGCC is advantageous in the environmental measures including global warming. In addition, IGCC has merits such as making low ash melting point coal which is difficult to use for conventional pulverized coal firing systems available.

 Hirono IGCC Power GK will construct and operate a 543 MW IGCC plant, which in to JERA Co., Inc.’s Hirono Thermal Power Station in Hirono-machi, Futaba-gun. We make an effort for coexistence and co-prosperity with the local area through IGCC.
