GE secures a contract for a 220 MW combined cycle plant in Bangladesh

General Electric (GE) has secured a contract for supplying two gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators, a steam turbine generator, a condenser and associated control systems for a 220 MW combined cycle plant in Bangladesh’s Bhola district, which is being developed by India’s Shapoorji Pallonji Group. The plant will operate in dual-fuel mode, with natural gas as the primary fuel and diesel as the backup fuel. It is expected to be commissioned by the end of 2019. This will be GE’s second 220 MW plant in Bhola; the first one was commissioned in 2015. Once commissioned, the plant is expected to supply power to 200,000 Bangladeshi households.
