Valmet will supply a biomass power boiler and a flue gas cleaning system to Tahara Biomass Power LLC in Tahara, Japan. The new CFB (circulating fluidized bed) boiler will enable the customer’s power plant to achieve a stable power supply at high thermal efficiency while significantly reducing CO2 emissions. This is already the sixth received order for Valmet’s CFB boiler to the Japanese market since 2016.

The order was included in Valmet’s orders received for the third quarter of 2021. The value of this kind of order is typically around EUR 70 million (approx. 59.15 crores). The installation work is scheduled to start in 2023, and the plant will start commercial operation in 2025.

The project will be delivered in cooperation with the Japanese company JFE Engineering Corporation. JFE Engineering will be the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contractor for the Tahara Biomass Power Plant.

“We are proud to supply one of the largest biomass-fired boiler plants in Japan with a maximum biomass combustion capacity. This is also our sixth boiler plant order in a row with JFE Engineering Corporation, which is proof of our long and trustful cooperation,” says Jari Niemelä, director, Boilers and Gasifiers, Energy business unit, Valmet.

Valmet’s delivery includes a biomass-fired 112 MWValmet CFB boiler and a flue gas cleaning system. The annual output of the Tahara biomass power plant will be 770 million kWh, and the main fuel to be used is wood pellets. All the electricity generated will be supplied to the grid companies based on the feed-in tariff scheme in Japan.

 

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
