International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Hitachi Zosen Corporation (HITZ), Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid circulating fluidized bed boiler with a flue gas cleaning system. The boiler will be part of a new biomass power plant to be built in Tokushima in Tokushima Prefecture, Shikoku Island, some 500 km southwest of Tokyo, Japan, for the Tokushima Tsuda Biomass Power Plant.
