Jera to restart Anegasaki gas power unit 6
Japanese utility Jera has decided to resume operations at gas-fired Anegasaki thermal power station unit 6 at Ichihara, which is currently under a long-term planned shutdown, beginning in February 2023, it said on October 21.
The 600 MW unit had been under planned shutdown since April 2021 due to deterioration and a drop in utilisation rate. After talks with the government, Jera has lifted the planned shutdown and will operate it as a measure to address additional power supply capacity for this winter.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
In addition, unit 5 is scheduled to resume operations on October 24 to supply auxiliary steam for the restart of unit 6.
Jera said it will move forward to restore the unit from its long-term planned shutdown and will make every effort, in cooperation with related parties, to ensure a stable supply of energy.
