    Nasrul: DPDC areas to have uninterrupted power supply by 2024

    December 2, 2022 - Dhaka Tribune


      State Minister for Power, Energy, and Mineral Resources Nasrul Hamid said that uninterrupted power supply will be ensured in Dhaka Power Distribution Company (DPDC) areas by 2024.

      'A total of 52 modern substations will be constructed under this project, and a SCADA (computer control system) centre will be built. The supply lines will be underground,' he said after visiting the site of six development projects of DPDC on Thursday.

      The state minister added that the uninterrupted power supply will be maintained by strengthening the distribution network.

      'Underground electric cables, substations, and automation will strengthen the central SCADA distribution system. An underground cable network with optical fiber will ensure a reliable power supply through dual sources,' Nasrul Hamid added.

      Meanwhile, officials from DPDC said that under the project titled "Extension and Strengthening of Power Distribution System in Areas under DPDC", 14 new 132/33kV and 26 new 33/11kV substations will be constructed and the capacity of existing eight 132/33kV and four 33/11kV substations will be increased.

      Considering the scarcity of land in Dhaka city, modern and high-capacity 35/50MVA and 33/11kV power transformers are being installed, they noted.

      DPDC areas include Azimpur, Dhanmondi, Motijheel and Narayanganj.

      On July 18, SNasrul Hamid said that hourlong nationwide loadshedding would start from the next day to minimize energy subsidies.
