Marubeni bags combined cycle power plant contract in Bangladesh

TOKYO, JAPAN/DHAKA, BANGLADESH: Marubeni Corporation, in partnership with Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co Ltd in Korea, has been awarded a contract for construction of the Bibiyana gas based combined cycle power plant at the total net capacity of approximately 400MW from Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) and signed the contract agreement on 26 December 2012 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Marubeni believes that its capability of project management and both technical and price competitiveness, which are corroborated with the extensive experience in the field of power projects in Bangladesh, are highly appreciated not only by BPDB, but also by the power sector in Bangladesh and it led to the successful award of this contract.

The scope of the contract includes the engineering, procurement, equipment delivery and the construction/installation works on full turn-key basis. The gas turbine & generator are to be procured from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries while the steam turbine & generator are to be procured from Fuji Electric Co Ltd.

The plant is expected to be taken over by BPDB in 2015. Upon completion, this plant will be equivalent to the largest combined cycle power plant in Bangladesh which is being constructed by Marubeni under the New Haripur Power Development Project.
