The government will purchase electricity from the plant for next 22 years.   American company GE is the partner of Summit in the project and also the supplier of the gas generators while the gas turbine of the project had come from France’s GE factory.   Summit Group chairman Mohammed Aziz Khan informed that his project is nearly at the completion stage and power generation from the plant will start at the end of October or early November.   Appreciating Summit Group for successfully implementing one of the largest power plants in Bangladesh, the US ambassador said this has been the largest domestic investment in the power sector by a local company.   This will help the country achieve its goal to become an Asian Tiger, he said, adding that in this project, where using Bangladeshi leadership, with American technology, Chinese, France and Korean companies are working together.   Replying to a question, Mozena said the US government has been working in partnership with Bangladesh government for implementing sustainable energy for all project.   French Ambassador Michel Trinquier said that he is very glad to see that a French company is supplying equipment for the project, – UNB
