Siemens in Bangladesh gas-fired plant supply deal

Siemens is to supply key components for Bangladesh’s Bibiyana South gas-fired power project.

The order comes from state-owned utility the Bangladesh Power Development Board, which will operate the 400 MW combined-cycle plant.

Spanish power construction and T&D firm Isolux Corsan will build the plant in the Habiganj district in Bangladesh’s northeast. It is expected to be operational in May 2018.

Siemens’ scope of supply includes one SGT5-4000F gas turbine (pictured), one SST-3000 steam turbine and one SGen-2000H generator, plus auxiliary systems and the electrical and instrumentation and control systems.

The project represents Siemens’ eighth power plant equipment supply order from Bangladesh, the company said, with orders already taken for power projects totalling 2.5 GW.  

The Bibiyana South project is part of Bangladesh's major capacity expansion program under its Power System Master Plan (PSMP) 2010. The nation aims to install power capacity totalling 24 GW within five years.
