Reliance Power Limited (“Reliance Power”) and JERA Co., Inc. (“JERA”), through their project company, are developing a new gas-fired power generation projectin Bangladesh (the “Project”). The project company has now signed a loan agreement for full financing totaling 642 million USD with a group of banks that includes the Japan Bank forInternational Cooperation (“JBIC”).
This Project is to build, own, and operate a 745 MW (net output: 718 MW) natural gas combined-cycle power project in Meghnaghat, Naranganj, located approximately 40 km southeast of Dhaka. The electricity generated will be sold under a long-term power purchase agreement with the Bangladesh Power Development Board (“BPDB”) for a period of 22 years from the start of commercial operation.

Reliance Power and JERA have taken the initiative in promoting the Project. The project company agreed an EPC contract with Samsung C&T in July 2020. With this loan agreement, all major contracts required for the development of the Project have been completed. Going forward, Reliance Power and JERA will focus on full-scale construction and work steadily towards achieving commercial operation in 2022.

“We are delighted to achieve financing tie-up for this landmark project, which is the largest foreign direct investment and the largest IPP in Bangladesh, with a consortium of banks led by JBIC. It represents one of the largest funding tie-ups for a project in Bangladesh’s Power Sector.” said Mr.Anil D. Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Power.

“In Bangladesh, where the high growth in electricity demand is expected to accompany the steady economic development, we aim to contribute to the country’s economic expansion through our participation in power generation and infrastructure businesses, including this Project.” said Mr. Satoshi Onoda, President of JERA.\
