|Type of Study||Special Assistance for Project Implementation (SAPI)|
|Project Name||Haripur Power Plant Rehabilitation and Expansion Project|
|Outline of Study||The purpose of this project is to update and expand (with an eye toward a combined-cycled plant), the Haripur Gas Turbine Power Plant on the outskirts of Dhaka. It was constructed with support of the Bank's ODA loan, thus bolstering power generation efficiency and output, and making effective use of natural gas resources in Bangladesh.|
The study will: verify how much progress was achieved in management efficiency by the Strategic Business Unit reform currently being implemented at the Plant. It will provide advice and guidance; and evaluate how this Strategic Business Unit reform fits in the context of the power sector reform in Bangladesh as a whole, in order to ensure that a sound and sustainable operational and maintenance (O&M) structure is put in place.
