Summit Meghnaghat II Power Company Limited (SMIIPCL), a subsidiary of Bangladesh’s Summit Group, has signed a 22-year power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB). It will co-develop with GE Power a 583MW combined cycle gas power plant near Dhaka, an announcement revealed.

SMIIPCL also signed other agreements with the Government of Bangladesh, Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB), Bangladesh Petroleum Corporation (BPC), and Titas Gas Transmission and Distribution Company Limited.
