BD to import 1,000MW hydro-power from Myanmar, China
The government has advanced the process to import 1,000MW hydro-power from Myanmar and China to meet up the future electricity demands, according to Power Division officials. Bangladesh has already been importing 660 MW power from India. “Bangladesh has sent a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to Myanmar on April 11, 2016 regarding cooperation in the power sector which is now an ongoing process between the two countries,” a Power Division official, preferring anonymity, told the Dhaka Tribune on Saturday. The government had also been considering to import about 400-500MW electricity from Lembro Hydro Power Project of China, he said, adding that a growing electricity demand had prompted Bangladesh to import power. He also informed that importing power from hydro-power plants of China and Myanmar would be much more cheaper compared to the other sources. He said a Myanmar company had expressed its interest to set up a 500MW hydro-power plant in Rakhine state and export electricity to Bangladesh.
