‘Power supply may improve by Saturday’

State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid Thursday re-assured the power situation is expected to improve by Saturday when supply increases.

“We expect the power supply situation to improve from Saturday through increasing generation to around 10,000 MW,” he told a press briefing at Bidyut Bhaban in Dhaka.

During Ramadan, he said, the country`s overall electricity demand would be over 10,000 MW.

The gas-guzzling industries like steel and re-rolling mills will remain off during the peak hours and shopping malls have been asked to avoid unnecessary illumination, he added.

He said the power transmission tower that collapsed by a recent storm and forced shutting down several big power plants led to the present bad situation.

He also said that the existing power transmission and distribution system is capable to handle 10,000 MW of power.

CNG filling stations across the country will not operate between 3 pm and 11pm, he added.
