JERA STARTS OPERATING YOKOSUKA COAL-FIRED POWER UNIT AHEAD OF SCHEDULE




JERA, Japan's top power generator, said on Friday its new No.2 coal-fired power unit at its Yokosuka thermal power station, near Tokyo, has started commercial operation ahead of schedule to meet the peak heating demand during the winter season.

The move comes despite mounting criticism from climate activists and some investors over its continued use of power plants that are fired by the polluting fuel. The launch of the 650-megawatts (MW) unit, initially slated for February next year, follows the commencement of the No.1 unit with 650-MW output capacity at Yokosuka in June this year.
