The erex Group currently possesses four biomass power stations, which makes us the leading biomass power generation company in Japan. We began operating our Japan’s largest scale biomass power plant in January 2020 located at Buzen-shi, Fukuoka-ken and Ofunato-shi, Iwate-ken. In addition, a new operation will begin in Uruma-shi, Okinawa-ken in July 2021 and Sakaide-shi, Kagawa-ken in 2024. The total output of these 6 biomass power plants will be approximately 350 Megawatt. The power stations which we are deploying throughout Japan are operated through joint investment from various partner companies. The daily operations of the power plants are conducted while making environment related reports to the local governments and cooperating with local partners, such as port related companies and shipping companies.

We are planning to build one of the world largest biomass power plants.
