NEPC set up office in capital

NEPC, one of the Chinese giant power engineering companies, has set up its office in Dhaka with a long term plan to penetrate Bangladesh market through setting up more power stations as well as importing power generation machineries and equipment, said a press statement.

NEPC (China Energy Engineering Group Northeast No 1 Electric Power Construction Co Ltd) is the first ever any Chinese power plant construction company that set up its own full- phased office in Dhaka.

“We are giving most priority to the Bangladesh projects as NEPC plants will be responsible for generating around one fourth of the total power generation of this country soon” The Executive Managing Director of Bangladesh Branch Company of NEPC Roy Luo Changqing said while inaugurating the new office at Glass House in Gulshan in the capital yesterday.

Currently, NEPC is constructing the 1320 MW coal-fired thermal power plant with eco- friendly clean coal technology, first time in Bangladesh, near Payra port in Patuakhali, one of the landmark power generation projects of the present government.

Luo said NEPC took a plan to expand its operation in Bangladesh for mitigating huge demand of power here with the spirit of long lasted friendly ties between Dhaka and Beijing.

“We will continue our effort to bring Chinese top power generation technology and top equipment to benefit Bangladesh people and its economy,” Luo added.
