Japan's Taiheiyo Cement will construct a biomass-fired unit with 75MW in Ofuna Factory, Iwate prefecture. The new unit is understood to burn domestic and imported biomass fuel.

At the site, a several power units had been operational, but some of them were damaged when the Great East Japan Earthquake hit the country in 2011. Thus, the new unit is considered as a replacement of the old power unit. Plus, since it will be built on the premises of the factory, Iwate prefecture decided there would be no need for environmental assessment procedures.
