» TEPCO & Mitsubishi will build two coal fired power plant in Fukushima

TEPCO will build two cutting-edge coal-fired power generation facilities in Fukushima Prefecture with three Mitsubishi group firms.

TEPCO will tie up with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Corp. and Mitsubishi Electric to build integrated gasification combined-cycle (IGCC) stations.

The two facilities with 500,000 kilowatts output each will be constructed in Iwaki city and Hirono town respectively, with the start of operations projected for around 2020. The 1 million kilowatts output in total is equivalent to one nuclear reactor.

TEPCO has been under pressure to introduce energy-efficient facilities as all of its nuclear power plants have been closed since the Fukushima disaster, with no immediate prospects of restarting any nuclear plants given public distrust.
