POWERCHINA Hubei Engineering Co Ltd was recently awarded contracts for the Burirhat 33 kilovolt and Lalbag 33 kV power station EPC projects by the Bangladesh Power Development Bureau.

Bangladesh serves as a bridge between Southeast Asia, South Asia and the estuary of the Ganges River. However, the development of power grids in the country has been lagging behind the country's increasing demand for power.

In 2017, the Hubei company began construction on the Nawabganj 100 megawatt heavy oil power plant project, and the company's excellent performance record was highly praised by the Bangladesh Power Development Bureau.

As a large number of power grid projects began to be established, the bureau invited the company to participate in contract bidding in order to continue supporting the development of Bangladesh's power market.

The company's business and project departments worked together on a number of distribution network station projects from October 2017 to early 2018, achieving excellent results.

The two EPC general contracting projects are breakthroughs for the Hubei company in the Bangladeshi market, and help solve the problem of a lack of 33kV power stations in the South Asian country.
