The third approach is emergency installment of new power supply facilities like gas turbines and diesel generators in some power stations’ sites in order to secure power supply capability.
As additional power supply, new power supply facilities were procured not only in Japan but also from other countries in the world and then urgently installed in the power station sites where applicable in terms of installment space, fuel supply, transmission capacity and etc.
|◆Status of emergent installment of new power supply facilities|
|(Unit of output: MW)|
|Power Station||Rated Capacity (MW)||System Confiquration||Fuel|
|Anegasaki||56||Diesel engine||1.4||4||Gas oil|
|Yokosuka||329.6||Gas turbine||25.3||3||Gas oil|
|Kashima||80.4||Gas turbine||268||3||Town gas|
|Ohi||209||Gas turbine||128||1||Town gas|
|Hitachinaka(*)||253.23||Diesel engine||15||64||Gas oil|
*At the end of March, 2012, the emergency generators at Hitachinaka Thermal Power Plant were abolished.
Numbers of support for these emergent installment of power supply facilities were received from overseas.
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) (South Korea) and EGAT (Thailand) kindly offered the support to provide power supply facilities soon after the disaster.
Diesel engines from HHI were installed in Anegasaki PS site and gas turbines from EGAT were installed in both Kawasaki and Ohi PS sites. These facilities are already under operation.
