    Cox's Bazar wind power project: 30MW to be added to national grid soon

    May 25, 2023 - Dhaka Tribune


      A total of 30MW of electricity will be added to the national grid on a trial basis in a few days as the first phase of the wind power project in Cox's Bazar nears completion.

      Dr Taufiq E Elahi Chowdhury, advisor to the prime minister on Power Generation and Mineral Resources, said this while visiting Bangladesh's first and largest wind power project at Khurushkul in Cox's Bazar on Wednesday afternoon.

      He said that the government is giving opportunities to the private sector to take up new wind power projects to meet the country's electricity needs.

      'It will be possible to fully launch the project in Cox's Bazar by the end of this year,' he added.

      The 60MW wind power project established at Khurushkul in Cox's Bazar Sadar started in March last year. The wind power project is expected to come into full production by the end of this year.

      The sources said that a private firm US-DK Green Energy (BD) Limited is setting up the country's first and largest wind energy project at Khurushkul in Cox's Bazar.

      Engineer Zahirul Islam Khan, managing director of USDK Green Energy Bd Limited, said that a total of 23 turbines will be installed to generate 60MW of electricity from wind, with each turbine producing 3MW of electricity.

      Already 10 turbines have been installed. Two more turbines will be installed as standby for back up.

      He said a proposal has been submitted to the Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources to increase the production capacity of the project up to 120MW, for which 20 more turbines will be required.
