Ashuganj Power Station Announces Project Financing for Gas-Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant in Bangladesh

Ashuganj Power Station Company Ltd. (APSCL) announced the project financing for the development of a gas-fired combined cycle power plant in Bangladesh in May 2012. The state-owned company signed a deal with a consortium from Sweden and Spain to set up a 450 Megawatt (MW) gas-fired combined cycle power plant. The financing has been provided through a credit facility with an interest rate of 3.3% per annum. The total cost of the project is estimated at $315m. According to the deal, the plant's gross production capacity will be 382.30 MW while the net output will be 373.312 MW. The plant will run at 56.81% efficiency using natural gas of 48.80 million cubic feet (MMcf) per day. The commercially proven capabilities of a combined cycle power plant, such as high efficiency, low emissions and a shorter construction time, will enable this facility to quickly add 450 MW to the country’s total installed capacity. The Ashuganj power station will be the country's second largest power generator and is expected to remove the demand and supply gap and end the power crisis in the country.
