Bergen Engines secures €133 million contract for two power stations in Bangladesh

Bergen Engines, subsidiary of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, has secured a Euro 133 million contract for the delivery of two power stations to Bangladesh. As per the contract, the company will supply a 112 MW power station to Confidence Power Rangpur Limited in 2017. The second will be a 150 MW power station at Ashuganj, which is set to be delivered by 2018 to Midland East Power Limited. Both the contracts also include delivery of spare parts over 15 years. These contracts are part of the Bangladesh government’s ambitious plan to more than double the national power generation capacity to 38,000 MW to meet a forecast demand of about 33,000 MW by 2030. This would require a substantial addition of about 9,000 MW over the next four years alone. The power plants will be based on internal combustion engines and will be built within a year.
