Takigami Binary Power Plant
Since the 1970s, Idemitsu has placed an emphasis on geothermal energy. Attracted to the future of this renewable energy source, we commenced the operation of Takigami Power Station 25,000kW as a joint venture with Kyusyu Electric Power Company Inc in Kokonoe town, Oita at 1996. Idemitsu has been supplying geothermal steam to Takigami power station to generate 25,000kW on constant basis and upgraded to 27,500kW equivalent since June 2010.
And Idemitsu has started its operation of Takigami Binary Power Plant which has a capacity of 5,050kW to utilize reinjected hot water from March 2017.
