GE inks maintenance contract for Bangladesh CCGT
General Electric (GE) has signed a maintenance service contract for the proposed 718-megawatt (MW) combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) power plant in Meghnaghat in Bangladesh, the US firm said on March 31. It will also provide a suite of digital solutions.
India’s Reliance Power and Japan’s Jera achieved financial closure on the project earlier this month with a group of lenders that includes Japan Bank for International Cooperation and Asian Development Bank.
The 22-year agreement signed by GE includes equipment maintenance on the gas and steam turbines, and auxiliaries, and implementation of plant-wide digital solutions on cloud APM (asset performance maintenance) health and reliability, OPM (operations performance maintenance) performance intelligence, and baseline security centre for the contract term.
The Meghnaghat power plant will be powered by two GE 9F gas turbines, one GE D11 steam turbine and three H53 generators.
