400MW natural-gas-fuelled power plant in Brahmanbarhia’s Ashuganj

The project, approved by the Executive Committee of the National Economic Council (ECNEC) on Tuesday, will cost Tk 29.31 billion.

State Minister for Finance and Planning MA Mannan said the facility, to be built by the Ashuganj Power Station Company Limited, would be ready by June 2020.

The government will bear Tk 4.20 billion of the cost, while the company would invest Tk 1.52 billion, with the rest coming as project aid.
