Bangladesh Telecommunication Regulatory Commission (BTRC) has allocated spectrum to two power generation plants last month.
The two power plants are: state-owned North West Power Generation Company Ltd sponsored Sirajganj power plant and private sector sponsored Notun Biddut Bangladesh Bhola plant.According to official sources, the North West Power Generation Company Ltd on September, 2020 applied for 12.5 KHz bandwidth under 416.5500/426.5500 MHz spectrum from Ultra High Frequency (UHF) to conduct the power plant operation smoothly.
As per the proposal, the plant authorities have also sought permission to use and import 70 walkie-talkies.
The BTRC has decided to allow the bandwidth in favour of the Sirajganj power plant as they have already received security clearance from the law enforcing agencies.
On the other hand, the Natun Biddut Bangladesh Ltd sponsored Bhola plant has also been allowed to use the same 12.5 KHz in bandwidth under 148.1000/153.1500 MHz spectrum from Ultra High Frequency (UHF) to conduct the power plant operation smoothly as per their application in September, 2020.
The power plant also sought to import 14- walkie-talkies and set up a base station.
