Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary Bergen Engines signed contracts for the delivery of two power stations to Bangladesh with a contract value of 133 million Euro. The picture shows one of the already existing Rolls-Royce power plants in Bangladesh/ Chittagong.
 

Rolls-Royce Power Systems subsidiary Bergen Engines signed contracts for the delivery of two power stations to Bangladesh with a contract value of 133 million Euro. The consignments to Confidence Power Rangpur Limited are destined for a power station in Rangpur delivering an output of 112 Megawatts electrical power. It will be supplied this year. A second, similar power station is set for delivery in 2018 as a further option. This 150 MW power plant intended for “Midland East Power Ltd” will be located in Ashuganj. Within the contracts are also spare parts deliveries over 15 years.
 
These contracts are part of the Bangladesh government’s ambitious plan to more than double national power generation capacity to 38,000 MW to meet a forecast demand of some 33,000 MW by 2030. Meeting this goal will require a substantial increase of a good 9,000 MW over the next four years alone – and this is where the medium-speed engines come in. A power plant based on internal combustion engines is easily built within just one year, whereas other alternatives can take as long as seven years to realize.
