Another coal plant for Matarbari

Update : 02 Nov 2015, 07:27 PM

State-owned Coal Power Generation Company Bangladesh Limited (CPGCBL) will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Singaporean company Sembcorp to build a 700MW power plant at Matarbari in Cox’s Bazar.

This is the company’s second coal-fired power project in Matarbari.

“CPGCBL wants to generate electricity based mainly but not solely on coal as fuel. We will sign an MoU with Sembcorp for this plant, under a joint venture, in the last week of this month,” CPGCBL Managing Director Md Abul Kasem told the Dhaka Tribune yesterday.

The company’s proposed 2 X 600MW coal-fired power plant project in the Matarbari and Dhalghata unions of Maheshkhali upazila includes the construction of the power plants, the construction of a jetty for coal imports, coal storage facilities, the development of a township, rural electrification and transmission facilities and roadways.

On August 5, the Cabinet Purchase Committee approved a separate unsolicited Sembcorp offer to set up a 400MW dual-fuel power plant on a build-own-operate (BOO) basis, under a joint venture with state-owned North-West Power Generation Company Ltd (NWPGCL).
