Chubu Electric Power Co Inc, Marubeni Corp and SB Energy Corp (Minato-ku, Tokyo) announced Nov 26, 2019, that they will build a biomass power plant with a rated output of 50MW in Gamagori City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

The plant is expected to generate about 340,000,000kWh of electricity, which is equivalent to the power consumption of 110,000 households, per year. As fuel, the plant will use wood pellets produced in North America, Oceania and Southeast Asia and palm shells produced in Indonesia.
