Jera starts gas power unit at Anegasaki station
Jera has started commercial operations at its combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) Anegasaki thermal power station new unit 1, it said on February 1.
The plant has a generating capacity of approximately 650 MW and will contribute to a stable electricity supply, Jera said. Last year, Jera decommissioned four gas-fired units at the Anegasaki station in the Chiba prefecture. These units were built between December 1967 and September 1972.
Jera is building three new gas-powered units at the station. Unit 2 and unit 3 are expected to come online in April and August, respectively. Old units 5 and 6 are operating as usual.
