Khulna 800 MW LNG Based Power Plant Project

Sovereign (Public) Project | 50161-004

In March 2016, the Government of Bangladesh requested the Asian Development Bank (ADB) for a loan to fund the Khulna 800 MW LNG Based Power Plant Project. Subsequently, in July 2016, the government requested ADB to provide a small-scale project preparatory technical assistance (TA) in an amount not exceeding $225,000 to help preparing the project. The TA will support the due diligence and preparatory work for the ensuing project. TA is not included in country operations business plan, 2016-2018 for Bangladesh. A fact-finding mission was not fielded as sufficient information had been gathered during previous consultation missions to proceed with TA processing.
