Power to All By 2021

Bangladesh, a country with a population of more than 160 million, is rich in potential and opportunity. To support its social and economic development growth, Bangladesh is committed to providing electricity to all by 2021.

GE, in consortium with China National Machinery and Equipment Import and Export Corporation, is working with Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) to repower three steam turbines at the Ghorashal Power Plant, the largest power station in Bangladesh. This will be the first repowering project for the country and will provide a much-needed increase in power generation capacity for Bangladesh by adding more than 200 megawatts (MW) of cleaner power to the national grid.

The project calls for repowering the existing 210 MW Power Machines (LMZ 200) steam turbine —which is run by a gas-fired boiler—by transforming it into a combined cycle power plant. The repowering will be achieved by installing a gas turbine and a heat recovery steam generator (HRSG) to generate an efficient 416.3 MW in combined cycle mode.

As part of the overall repowering scope, the station’s existing steam turbine will be retrofitted with GE’s advanced reaction design steam turbine high pressure (HP) module, intermediate pressure (IP) module and lower pressure (LP) inner module to suit the new steam parameters.

Reducing Carbon Footprint

In the process, GE is helping Bangladesh reduce its carbon footprint, joining the global community in its efforts to mitigate climate change. GE’s innovative solutions will help to substantially reduce carbon emissions from the power plant by enhancing the station’s overall efficiency of the plant to 54 percent.

GE understands that sustainability, cost, and the supply of energy is essential to the region's growth strategy. Currently, about 1.9 GW of Bangladesh’s installed power base is from GE, representing more than 30 gas turbines.
