Indian High Commissioner to Dhaka, Pranay Verma, visited the Maitree Super Thermal Power Plant at Rampal on Saturday.
Phase-II of the project will be completed shortly, according to officials.
Phase-I of the 1320 MW power plant was inaugurated by the prime ministers of India and Bangladesh on September 2022 and has already started supplying electricity to the national grid of Bangladesh.
The plant is being built with funding from Government of India’s Concessional Financing Scheme with an outlay of about US$2.0 billion, majority of which is being provided by India’s EXIM Bank.
The plant uses Ultra Super Critical Technology and is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities.
Energy cooperation is an important component of India-Bangladesh development partnership. The Maitree Super Thermal Power Plant is a concrete manifestation of the deep-rooted friendship and cooperation between India and Bangladesh.
