The Khurushkul wind power plant in Cox’s Bazar is poised to contribute 30 megawatts of electricity to the national grid on a trial basis, with plans to reach a total capacity of 60 megawatts by the end of the year 2023. The privately-owned plant, implemented by US-DK Green Energy (BD) Ltd with Chinese investment, aligns with the government’s renewable energy goals. The project, estimated at $120 million, has 22 wind turbines, with 10 already installed. Each turbine can generate 3 megawatts of electricity, and the remaining turbines will be installed soon. The plant’s location benefits from a wind flow of 5.5 meters per second, surpassing the minimum requirement for commercial viability. The initiative has garnered optimism among business entities and the local community, as it holds the potential to address the electricity problems in Cox’s Bazar.
