GE announced that it has been selected by the Shapoorji Pallonji Group to supply the power generation equipment for the upcoming 220 MW combined cycle power plant in the Bhola district of Bangladesh.
The SP Group has signed a 22-year Power Purchase Agreement with Bangladesh Power Development Board. The power plant will operate on duel-fuel technology using natural gas as the primary fuel and diesel as the back-up fuel and is expected to achieve commercial operations by December 2019. The project will result in supplying the equivalent power needed to provide electricity to 200,000 homes in Bangladesh.
GE Power will supply the full suite of engineered equipment package for the project, including two 6F.03 gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, one steam turbine generator, condenser and associated control systems. GE will also provide technical expertise during the installation phase of the project.
