Mitsubishi Power bags maintenance contract for Bangladesh’s Bibiyana-III 400 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant gas turbines


Mitsubishi Heavy Industry has been given a long-term service contract that will last seven years for the 400 MW Combined Cycle Power Plant in Bangladesh. Under the conditions of the agreement, Mitsubishi Power will inspect and perform maintenance on the gas turbines at the 400 MW Bibiyana-III Combined Cycle Power Plant. This will ensure that the gas turbines continue to be reliable and efficient.

The M701F gas turbine from Mitsubishi Power is the most efficient gas turbine running in Bangladesh. Since the power plant in Bangladesh began commercial operations in 2019, the M701F has acted as the plant’s core and most important component. These gas turbines are responsible for twenty per cent of Bangladesh’s total ability to generate electricity.

The Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB), a government organisation working under the Ministry of Power, Energy, and Minerals, owns the Bibiyana-III CCPP, one of the largest gas turbine combined cycle (GTCC) power plants in Bangladesh. It is located roughly 200 kilometres northeast of Dhaka. The Bangladesh electricity Development Board (BPDB) is in charge of the nation’s electricity generation and distribution, as well as the planning and development of Bangladesh’s power industry.

Since 1987, when Mitsubishi Power erected Bangladesh’s first gas turbine at the Old Haripur Power Station, they have worked closely with the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB). In 2016, the BPDB authorised Mitsubishi Power to install an M701F gas turbine at the facility.

Over sixty years ago, Mitsubishi Power was tasked with supplying Bangladesh with its very first steam turbine. Since then, the company has shipped nine gas and six steam turbines to Bangladesh. Additional services, including after-sales care and operation and maintenance, are provided for the power plants.
