The power plant will have to be completed within 660 days of signing the deal for simple cycle and within 900 days for re-powering of steam turbine, said the BPDB official.
The power plant will be built as per the government move to enhance electricity generation to 8,000 mw by 2015 and 20,000 mw by 2021.
