Uttara to get improved power supply



Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) will replace Desco's 1.6-km high-voltage 132kV grid line in Uttara in the city. Officials said the Dhaka Electricity Supply Company, or Desco, the power-distribution entity for the city's north-western part, has to replace the transmission line following its relocation for facilitating the Metro Rail Project. The line-replacement work fell to PGCB, said the officials, in view of its official remit of maintaining and operating distribution lines for the government working as a subsidiary of the Power Development Board. To implement the "Desco 132kV Underground Cable Replacement" project, the PGCB recently appointed a Chinese contractor to do the job at a cost of Tk 210 million. The Chinese joint-venture firm-CCCE-ETERN-will complete the job that entails cable replacement from Desco Substation to Sonargaon Jonopath Road in Uttara, in the next eight months.    — UNB
