After the commissioning, it will meet the electricity demand of about 1.1 million people while solving the domestic waste disposal problem of 6 million people in North Dhaka. Therefore, it will bring benefits to the local people’s livelihood.

The signing ceremony brought together nearly 300 guests including Chinese Ambassador to Bangladesh Li Jiming, Counsellor Liu Zhenhua of Economic and Commercial Office, Minister Tazul and Senior Deputy Minister Uddin of Rural Development and Cooperatives of Bangladesh, Minister Nasrul and Deputy Minister Habib of Ministry of Power, Energy and Mineral Resources of Bangladesh, Mayor Athi of North Dhaka City, and Chairman Belayet of BPDB in Dhaka City.
