Power Division signs MoU to improve power grid and distribution system
Power Division has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on Wednesday with the Swedish Embassy and ABB Ltd to improve the national power grid and distribution system in Bangladesh. Joint Secretary of Power Division Sheikh Faezul Amin, Swedish Ambassador to Bangladesh Charlotta Schlyter and Country Managing Director of ABB Limited Harikishan Narayanan signed the MoU on behalf of their respective sides at Biduyt Bhaban in Dhaka. At the programme, State Minister for Power, Energy and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid said: “We are committed to improve the power transmission and distribution systems through new space saving sub-stations and adopting digital power management solutions. As part of the MoU, ABB will execute pilot projects with five power utility firms. This will introduce them to new technology and digitalise the grid which will eventually make the system more reliable and efficient. The utility firms are: Power Grid Company of Bangladesh Limited (PGCB), Dhaka Electric Supply Company Limited (Desco), Dhaka Power Distribution Company Limited (DPDC), Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board (BREB) and West Zone Power Distribution Company Limited (WZPDCL). According to the MoU, ABB together with the utility companies, will initiate a feasibility study to finalise the detailed scope and price for the different projects after which contract finalisation will take place. These pilot projects are much smaller in scale and scope and most importantly provides hands on experience to local engineers on the latest technologies available in power grid and distribution control and management. Based on the experience gained from these pilots, large scale implementation projects could be initiated by the utilities, the MoU added.
