On Going China Project in Bangladesh .the policy times



Dhaka Bureau Policy Times :China National Machinery Import and Export Corporation (CMC) has partnered with North West Power Generation Company Limited (NWPGCL) of Bangladesh to invest, construct and operate Payra 2×660 MW Ultra Supercritical Thermal Power Plant Project.

It is the flagship project of the “Belt and Road Initiative”. This is considered an iconic project in the field of Sino-Bangla energy cooperation. The Project is an important part of the construction of China-Bangladesh-India Economic Corridor.

After the COVID-19 outbreak, CMC gave an overall consideration of both epidemic prevention and control and work resumption. With the joint Sino-Bangla efforts, the 1st Unit has already commenced the Reliability Run Test on April 7, 2020, and successfully passed this test.

Later, as per the official confirmation of Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB) it has achieved the Initial Operation Date (IOD) on May 15, 2020, marking significant progress in the development and construction of this project.

The 2nd Unit was also successfully connected to the grid for power generation on August 26, 2020, and the performance test was completed on September 30, 2020, with excellent operating performance indicators, making a firm and successful step towards the next major node goal!

In the future, after two units of Payra 2×660 MW Ultra Supercritical Thermal Power Plant Project enter into initial operation, the average annual on-grid power generation at full load will reach 8.5 billion kWh, accounting for about 10% of the total power generation in Bangladesh.

The project will provide efficient, clean, cheap and continuous electric energy for the region. At the same time, it has positive significance for Bangladesh to adjust power structure, reduce terminal electricity price, improve people’s living standard and promote regional economic development.

Wow, what a shit, funny how China is dumping these on third world while they are moving onto renewables and nuclear
That is not true. Coal power plants are so far backbones of all major power grids in the world. Only hydro power plants and nuclear power plants are close but they are disadvantageous on stability of power output or building costs. Alternate current networks require high power output stability otherwise the networks could desynchronise, split into smaller grids, generators might have to be cut off from the grids and consumers would lose electricity.

Currently renewable energy cannot guarantee highly stable power output. It is very clear that coal power plants are always required. The biggest concern on coal power plants is emission of polluting gas. So what the industry is doing, besides applying advanced filtering technology, is trying to maximise power generating efficiency. The current solution is called ultra supercritical power plants. The article describes relevant development of the technology and indicates that China is actually applying stricter emission policies than other places of the world.

All those power plants are huge in scale. So what China did in last 2 decades is shutting down all smaller coal power plants and replacing them with ultra supercritical power plants, ie. much fewer but huge coal power plants instead of many smaller coal power plants.

You are talking to someone from a country where people don't have the slightest clue about electricity because half of them don't even have a steady connection. They think 'solar' and 'wind' power is what runs China, along with nuclear.

In the past I have tried to drive some sense by quoting stats. Like India which generates 70% of its electricity from coal. Or China where it is 60%. They think BD is some special country that can somehow be an exception.
