World's Largest Hydrogen Plant May Be Built in Fukushima
Tokyo, Sept. 29 (Jiji Press)--Toshiba Corp. <6502>, Tohoku Electric Power Co. <9506> and Iwatani Corp. <8088> said Thursday that they will conduct a feasibility study on the development of a major hydrogen energy system in Fukushima Prefecture.
The envisioned system will have a hydrogen production facility with a capacity equivalent to 10,000 kilowatts, the world's largest, the companies said.
The government plans to build a major renewable energy base in the northeastern Japan prefecture, battered by the 2011 nuclear crisis at Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings Inc.'s <9501> Fukushima No. 1 power plant, and produce hydrogen there by using solar, wind and other renewable energies.
The government also plans to use Fukushima-produced hydrogen for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles during the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics.
The three companies will conduct the feasibility research under a deal awarded by the state-affiliated New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization.
