Recently, the No. 1 Unit of Bangladesh PAYRA 2×660MW coal-fired power station Project, with boilers supplied by Dongfang Electric Corporation, completed 720-hour continuous reliability operation test.
Bangladesh is an important participant of the "Belt and Road” initiative. The PAYRA project is the first 660MW coal-fired generating unit in Bangladesh and is one of the major Sino-Bangladesh cooperation projects under the policy of "Belt and Road". The PAYRA coal-fired power station under construction will be of great significance to promote the economic development in Bangladesh and strengthen and expand power construction cooperation between China and Bangladesh.
