GE Gets Bangladesh Gas Based Power Plant Contract

GE has been selected by India's Shapoorji Pallonji Group (SP Group) to supply the power generation equipment for the upcoming 220 MW Bhola power project in Bangladesh which will operate on duel-fuel technology using natural gas as the primary fuel and diesel as the back-up fuel, it said September 13.

This will be GE’s second power plant in Bhola of the same capacity with the first having been commissioned in 2015. The Bhola project is being developed by the SP Group as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) and is expected to be commissioned by December 2019. The SP Group has signed a 22-year power purchase agreement with Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB).

GE Power will supply the full suite of engineered equipment package (EEP) for the project, including two 6F.03 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators (HRSG), one steam turbine generator, condenser and associated control systems. GE will also provide technical expertise during the installation phase of the project. 

Currently, GE has an installed base of more than 35 gas turbines in Bangladesh, generating more than 2.2 GW of power.
