Inc to build, own, and operate a 745-MW (net output: 718 MW) gas-fired power generation project in Meghnaghat near Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Key Points:

  • Also with this, Reliance Power is expected to reduce debt by Rs 3,000 crore.

ii.RPower also relocate the equipment from Samalkot to Bangladesh owing to non availability of natural gas for the project.
