The joint venture SS Power Plant, with a capacity of 1,320MW, initiated its experimental power supply to the national grid in Chattogram’s Banshkhali. Starting with 1MW, the supply quickly escalated to 100MW within a short time. While the plant can provide up to 500MW, the Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) plans to take a maximum of 200MW during peak nighttime hours.
Utilizing supercritical technology, the coal-fired plant ensures minimal environmental pollution and higher power generation efficiency by burning less coal. Its connection to the 400KV transmission line of the national grid took place on January 14, 2023.
