On August 9, 2017, NEDO participated in a ceremony at the Osaki CoolGen Corporation (on the premises of the Chugoku Electric Power Co., Inc. Osaki Power Plant facility) in Osakikamijima Town, Hiroshima Prefecture. The ceremony celebrated the completion of a facility to host a demonstration test of an oxygen-blown integrated coal gasification combined cycle system, which will be the first stage of an integrated coal gasification fuel cell combined cycle demonstration project.

NEDO Chairman Kazuo Furukawa greeted attendees by saying that NEDO hoped that this project would lead to the commercialization of high-efficiency coal-fired power technology.
