Japanese rail firm JR East has upgraded a kerosine-fired generation unit to use gas at its Kawasaki in-house power complex to work towards its net-zero emissions target by 2050.
JR East started commercial operations of the 21.1MW gas-fired unit in Kanagawa prefecture on 1 June. The No.1 unit had a 14.4MW capacity when it used kerosine as feedstock. JR East is studying the possibility of using hydrogen as a generation fuel at the existing No.2 and No.3 city gas generation units, along with carbon capture, utilisation and storage technology to reduce its emissions.
The company operates four power plants at Kawasaki with a combined capacity of 80.7MW, with two using natural gas and others using piped city gas as a generation fuel. Japan's city gas supplies typically comprise 90pc methane, supplied through LNG imports, 5pc LPG and 5pc ethane. The JR East Kawasaki's No.5 21.1MW gas-fired power plant is currently being built.
