GE Power has recently signed the first-of-its kind multi-year maintenance contract with the Banglad-esh Power Development Board (BPDB) to provide services and maintenance as the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
The five-year contract includes the procurement of spares and services from GE for the scheduled maintenance of the two GE 6F.03 gas turbine units installed at the 225 MW combined-cycle gas-based power plant in the Bhola district of Bangladesh.

This new services contract will ensure enhanced availability and utilization of the assets, which generate the equivalent electricity needed to supply up to 270,000 homes in Bangla-desh.
BPDB Chairman Khaled Mahmood said, "To meet the increasing electricity demand in Bangladesh, we are adopting the latest technology to ensure that our power plants continue to generatereliable electricity throughout their life-cycle." GE South Asia Gas Power Systems CEO Deepesh Nanda said "Today, GE offers the largest power plant services portfolio in the industry globally, including the cross-fleet capabilities."
