On 12th April 2018, Hitachi Zosen announced that it has completed the construction of a new waste-to-energy (WtE) facility at Neyagawa in Osaka Prefecture. Hitachi Zosen received the ¥11.3 billion contract for the project from the Neyagawa municipal authorities in July 2014.
The facility incorporates two stoker-type incinerators, each with a waste processing capacity of 100 tonnes per day. Electricity generating output will be 4.71 MW, with a power generation efficiency of about 22% expected.
Hitachi Zosen has, for the first time, introduced its new Combustion Sensing Monitor System (Cosmos) at this facility. Cosmos is designed to achieve the stable operation of the incinerator, determining the optimum combustion condition of the refuse incinerator using an image recognition system.
