The operation will resume on Monday, according to an official

A unit of Barapukuria coal-fired power plant, which was shut down after the disappearance of a huge volume of coal, will resume its operation on Monday for five days to meet the electricity demand during Eid-ul-Azha.

Manager and executive engineer of power plant, Mahbubur Rahman, said a total of 5,000-6,000 tons of coal was in reserve, from which 70-80MW of electricity can be generated from Unit No 2, reported UNB.

With this, the problem of low voltage and load-shedding will be reduced in the area, he said.

Barapukuria Coal-Fired Thermal Power Plant was shut down on July 22, when a team from Power Development Board visited the coal mine and found that there was no adequate reserve of coal in the mine yard.

As per the official investigation, the stock was found to have a shortage of 148,000 tons of coal.

A case was filed with Parbatipur police station on July 24 against 19 officials.

The case was later transferred to the Anti-Corruption Commission for investigation.
