WELTEC BIOPOWER and FT BIOPOWER at the environmental fair N-Expo in Tokyo

WELTEC BIOPOWER and its Japanese partner FT BIOPOWER will exhibit at the environ-mental trade fair N-Expo in Tokyo. The experienced manufacturer will present its proven plant technologies, services and processes for the energetic utilization of biogas from sewage sludge, waste and agricultural residues.

WELTEC and FT BIOPOWER have already been working together successfully since 2019. Until recently, FT BIOPOWER was still operating under the name „Katonoki“. Now that the company has evolved and experienced higher demand on the topic of biogas, the change of name was only a logical conclusion. One of the joint projects was the construction of a plant in Urahoro on Hokkaido, the northernmost of Japan‘s main islands.

In earthquake areas, such as the Japanese plant site, the design challenge lies in the specific statics of the stainless steel tanks, which are adapted to the tectonic location. With the experience of the manufacturer WELTEC BIOPOWER, the plant was specifically designed with the geological conditions in mind.„The plant was completed in 2022, and today we can draw a first conclusion: January and February are the coldest time of the year in Hokkaido. At night, temperatures can drop to -20°C. Normally, the digester temperature in our competitor‘s plant decreases and the power generation drops. However, the output of the Urahoro plant remains at almost 100 percent,“ explains Vladimir Bogatov, Area Sales Manager for the Asia-Pacific region.

Visitors to the N-Expo in Tokyo from May 24 to May 26, 2023, can get more information about all energy plants from WELTEC BIOPOWER and its Japanese partner FT BIOPOWER at booth U503.
