Hitachinaka Joint Thermal Power Station Unit 1 has begun its commercial operation. The plant has been developed by JERA Co., Inc. (JERA) through its subsidiary Hitachinaka Generation Co., Inc.
Located on the site of JERA’s Hitachinaka Thermal Power Station, this high-efficiency coal-fired power station uses an ultra-supercritical power generation system (USC) with a generating capacity of 650MW. It also introduces state-of-the-art environmental equipment to mitigate environmental impact.
JERA will continue to employ high-efficiency coal-fired power stations and develop decarbonization technologies as part of its efforts to maintain a stable supply of electricity and reduce CO2 emissions. JERA is the largest power generation company in Japan, producing about 30% of Japan’s electricity.
