India’s Sembcorp Gayatri Power Limited (SGPL) power plant has won a tender from Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) to supply 250MW of power for 15 years.
SGPL is wholly owned by Sembcorp’s India power arm, Sembcorp Energy India (SEIL).
BPDB has sent letters of intent (LoI) to SGPL, with plans to begin the power supply upon completion of procedural requirements and relevant government approvals, reports power-technology.com.
The BPDB launched the tender in February for two-phase short-term and long-term gas or coal power supply.
SEIL has two thermal power plants in Andhra Pradesh, with four 660-megawatt super-critical coal-fired units and a total installed capacity of 2.64 gigawatts.
SEIL managing director Vipul Tuli said: “We are pleased to have emerged as the successful bidder in this tender, and look forward to commencing supply of power under a tariff that is competitive for Bangladesh and sustainable for our company.”
