Description The Project involves design, engineering, construction and operation of a 341MW combined cycle gas-fired power plant.
Objectives and Scope

The Project will alleviate a severe power shortage adversely impacting the country's economic growth and poverty reduction efforts by adding 341 MW of greenfield power capacity generating cleaner, efficient, reliable and affordable electricity. The Project will also stimulate the economy by purchasing local goods and services and creating jobs for qualified locals in the Project area and in the country.

The Project will also catalyze, private sector investment in power generation in Bangladesh, using a public-private partnership framework.

Status of Development Objectives The Project has been contributing to its development objectives. It has, among other indicators, successfully commissioned 341-megawatt power plant by 2016 running on indigenous gas and employed more than 900 people locally during construction and more than 70 people during operations.
Status of Operation/Construction Project Physical Completion was declared on 18 January 2017 while Project Financial Completion under the Finance Documents was declared on 31 January 2018.
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy ADB's support for the Project is in line with Bangladesh''s 2011-15 Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) and the government's Sixth Five-Year Plan FY2011-FY2015. The CPS emphasized the importance of ADB's support in ensuring reliable power supply and enhance access to power. The CPS also mentioned that private sector development will be prioritized to accelerate growth by addressing major infrastructure constraints, enhancing capacity for public private partnerships (PPP) and private sector investments. The project will contribute to the reduction of power supply gap which is one of the most critical obstacles to private sector investment and will improve the investment climate for private sector-led growth and poverty reduction.

Summary of Environmental and Social Aspects
Environmental Aspects Environmental impacts and risks of the Project and associated facilities during construction and operation include air emissions and ambient air quality, noise and vibration, water supply and wastewater discharge, erosion and runoff, impacts on flora and fauna, occupational and community health and safety, traffic safety and solid wastes. These issues and impacts are addressed by preventive and effective control and mitigation measures as laid out in the Environmental Management Plan. Since the Project was under construction in anticipation of ADB's financing, an environmental compliance audit was prepared, including on-site assessment, to identify past or present concerns related to impacts on the environment. A corrective action plan was developed where non-compliances were identified. SBPCL implemented required remedial actions as per the corrective action plan.
Involuntary Resettlement The project involves acquisition of 11 acres of single crop agricultural land where the power plant is located. Associated facilities such as gas pipeline, switchyard and access roads are shared with other plants in the area. Compensation has been completed for 31 affected households and a Livelihood Restoration Plan was developed (LRP) and implemented for them. An LRP Audit was conducted to assess the activities implemented in the plan.
Indigenous Peoples The project did not affect any Indigenous Peoples.
Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation Series of consultations were undertaken with different project stakeholders including affected households and the community before and during project construction. Continuous engagement with the community and other stakeholders are carried out now that the plant is operational and several CSR activities have been undertaken by the company.
