Rampal Power Plant
Rampal Power Plant is a 1,230 MW thermal power plant built by Bangladesh India Friendship Power Company (BIFC) – a joint venture between India’s government-owned NTPC Ltd and Bangladesh Power Development Board. Its construction is underway in Bagerhat District in Bangladesh at an area that is at close proximity with the world’s largest mangrove forest – Sundarbans.
The first consignment of coal for this thermal plant is to be shipped to Mongla Port in Bangladesh from Dhanbad for testing the plant. The project was to be completed by the end of last year. However, it was delayed because of the pandemic.
