Chubu Electric Power Co.,Inc.

Chubu Electric Power announces that it today started commercial operations of Nishi-Nagoya Thermal Power Station No. 7-1.

Nishi-Nagoya Thermal Power Station No. 7-1 has achieved thermal efficiency of at least 62 percent (lower heating value (note)), which is at a world-class level for thermal power generation. When combined with No. 7-2, the construction of which is underway, Group No. 7 can reduce both LNG consumption by 500,000 metric tons a year and carbon dioxide emissions by 1,400,000 metric tons per annum.

Chubu Electric Power will strive for the stable operation of No. 7-1. With continued understanding and cooperation of local residents and relevant parties for No. 7-2’s construction work, the Company will carry the work forward while giving highest priority to safety.

(Note) A method that excludes the evaporation heat of water vapor generated in the event of fuel combustion.
