LJUNGSTRÖM - ARVOS K.K. has been awarded a contract by IHI Corporation for the supply and delivery of two Ljungström® Air Preheaters for a coal-fired power plant to be built in Kobe, Japan.


This contract is for Ljungström® air preheaters on two new boilers to be supplied by IHI to the large coal-fired power plant, to be constructed in Kobe city, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan. Each Ljungström® air preheater will be supplied to two 650 MW boilers. The air preheaters are of the same size as the one supplied in 2002, which is the largest size of air preheater in Japan.
