The objective of the project is to meet the growing demand of electricity and to ensure stable power supply by installing a 1200 MW (600MW X 2 unit) Ultra Super Critical Coal-Fired Power Plant.

JICA would give the credit under the 40th official development assistance (ODA) loan package. The annual interest rate for this loan is 0.9 percent for the construction of the project, 0.01 percent for consultancy services and front fee is 0.2 percent. Loan repayment period is 30 years, with 10 years of grace period.

Monowar Ahmed said JICA is giving the loans for the projects in phases. Agreements have already been signed under 35th, 37th, 38th and 39th loan packages.
