Geothermal Division

Ogiri Geothermal Power Station

Geothermal surveys and development of geothermal energy, and supply and sale of geothermal steam-heated water, while being mindful of the environment

The Geothermal Division began geothermal surveys in Kirisima-shi, Kagoshima Prefecture in 1973. From March 1996, this division began supplying steam to the 30,000-kW Ogiri Geothermal Power Station of Kyushu Electric Power Company Inc. More than two decades have passed since then, and the division still maintains a steady supply of steam to the power station. We will also continue with geothermal development in the nearby Shiramizugoe district and other areas, always mindful of the environment.
