Thermal power station new unit 1 is an LNG-fired power station that uses a gas turbine combined-cycle power generation system (GTCC).

It has a generating capacity of approximately 650 MW and is located at Anegasaki Kaigan, Ichihara-shi, Chiba.

Besides the new unit 1, the station includes new units 2 and 3, as well as units 5 and 6. New units 2 and 3 have generating capacity of 650 MW and use GTCC, while units 5 and 6 have a capacity of 600 MW and use Steam. All are LNG-fired.

JERA said it will continue to move steadily forward in replacing ageing equipment with state-of-the-art power stations as it works to contribute to a stable electricity supply and reduce CO2 emissions.

In 2022, Jera and partners have marked the completion of the Nanohana Pipeline connecting the Futtsu LNG import terminal and the Anegasaki station.
