NTPC plans to start power supply to Bangladesh from September
Project Detail
National Thermal Power Corporation is likely to start supply of 250 MW power to neighbouring Bangladesh from next month. NTPC Vidyut Vyapar Nigam (NVVN), a subsidiary of NTPC, is expected to start supplying power to Bangladesh from September 2013. NVVN is the nodal agency for supply of power to Bangladesh. Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) is also expected to purchase an additional 250 MW from the India. The electrical grid interconnection between the two countries would be through a HVDC (high voltage direct current) link between the eastern region of India and the western grid of Bangladesh. The grid will facilitate cross-border power transfer of 500 MW. The transmission system on the Indian side will be executed by the Power Grid Corporation of India, which would also provide consultancy to Bangladesh, up to the commissioning for the project.
