Barapukuria power plant shut down again

A unit of Barapukuria Coal-fired Thermal Power Plant which resumed operation eight days ago to meet the demands of electricity during the Eid-ul-Azha was shut down again on Tuesday.

 

Executive Engineer and Manager of the power plant Mahbubur Rahman said the unit having a capacity of producing 125 MW electricity went out of operation around 3:45 pm as the reserved coal got exhausted, reports UNB.

 

The operation of the power plant will resume again depending on the availability of coal, he said.

 

After remaining closed for about a month, the unit-2 of the Barapukuria power plant resumed its operation on August 20.

 

Barapukuria Coal-fired Thermal Power Plant was shut down on July 22 for shortage of coal.
